Welcome to Datça


Datça makes a pleasant base for seeing the area, with a string of waterside restaurants that spill onto the beach once the weather turns warm. You might prefer nearby Eski Datça (Old Datça), which has preserved the traditional feel that Datça has lost. Off season, however, Datça is a better choice, as many businesses in the neighbouring village shut their doors.

Gulf of Gokova From Bodrum 7-Night Gulet Cruise with Meals

Meet your host and fellow passengers on board your gulet, a small sailing boat with 16 number of cabins, each with their own bathroom. Pint-sized yet pristine, the gulet boasts a below-deck saloon bar and dining area, as well as a spacious sun deck, that’s perfect for sunbathing on as you cruise around the Aegean Sea.Besides your first and last nights in the chic town of Bodrum, the rest of your cruise is spent exploring the islands and villages dotted around the Gulf of Gökova, between the Bodrum and Datça peninsulas. The area is widely untouched by tourism with incredible unspoiled scenery and ancient ruins just waiting to be discovered.How you spend your time when your gulet is docked is up to you. Stops at the best bays and islands for swimming or diving are factored in to your route, and you’ll stay anchored each night in quiet fishing villages or secluded coves. Optional excursions, designed to give you a taste of life in rural Turkey, can be taken on Days 4 and 7. All meals are included on board your boat, but drinks are at your own expense.
