DATCA

According to the ancient Greeks, Datca was created by Zeus. Strabo said: “God sent his beloved creatures to Datça for them to live longer.”It’s 50 miles long within the Mulga province of Turkey, and is impressively unspoiled, luscious and green, and truly rich with seemingly unending inspiring sights.

Datca is all about the best quirky elements, of everything Turkish. It features picturesque pine-crested hills contrasted against deserted beaches and unending olive groves. As you get closer to land, you may even detect a mix of pleasant smells in the air. Thyme, rosemary and sage fill the air of this blue cove backwater peninsular. A sleepy village, you’ll find goats roaming local roads and a constant stream of old men sipping coffee in cafes.

You’ll find that tourists visit, but not for too long, mainly for short stops during cruises. In essence, Datca is the real, rural Turkey.
