1 Week Sample Route
Here is the Marmaris- Datca- Marmaris 1 Week Sample Route plan; on the first day, our gulet will remain anchored in Marmaris Port for dinner and stay at the port overnight.
Marmaris is a port city and a tourist resort on the Mediterranean coast, located in southwest Turkey, in Muğla Province. Marmaris is a heavenly corner where you can see all grades and harmonies of green and blue during the twelve months of the year. The abundance of bays on the long coast line; its being a natural port; ancient cities; natural attractions; Blue Cruise facilities, marina for 800 boat and water-sports facilities are the peculiarities making Marmaris a paradise for tourists.
Marmaris is one of the most elegant yachting resorts of Turkey. A point to meet the most beautiful boats. Ultramarine blue sea, mountains and pinewoods sketch the landscape. Many choices of shops, cafes, restaurants are to be found along the narrow streets of the town.
Arap Islet (Turkish: Arap Adası) is an uninhabited island in Turkey. According to Turkish Atlas, it is situated on the borderline of the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
Bozakkale ( Loryma) is an ancient city that dates back to 10 BC. There are nine towers of the castle walls extending in a mutually rectangular pattern. The castle and towers are very well preserved and appear in a solid state. ‘Kale’ means ‘corrupted’. Therefore, the name of the place may be attributed to the fact that one side of the castle is missing.
Bozukkale used to serve as a bay cruise stretch for British naval ships and is now considered as a shipyard on the shore. It was used as a place to watch all the yachts in the Aegean.
Datca was founded by the Dorians who settled in the Aegean islands and the southern coast of Ionia. This peninsula is located between the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea.
At the end of the peninsula, at a distance of about 38 km is the ancient Carian city of Knidos.
Bencik Bay which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside.
Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from the Gokova Gulf but it is located at Hisaronu side.
The Selimiye village in the Mugla district of Marmaris is one of the pearls of the Gulf of Hisaronu. The ancient name of this village was Hydas, which got changed to Losta. At sunset, the sun disappearing behind the mountains surrounding the village seems to dye the scenery in a rich red hue. The small restaurants along the sea offer fresh seafood. The sea is very calm and clean.
Orhaniye is a lovely little village which nestles in a mountain on the western side of the Bozburun. Kizkumu beach in Bozburun is one of the most beautiful beaches with its own dark red color. You can walk on the sea! There is a long sandy walkway across the sea. Water is just above your ankles. From shore, you will appear like ‘’walking on the sea’.
The story of this beach is interesting: A beautiful princess was trying to escape from pirates and she didn’t know how to swim so she filled her skirt with sand and scattered it to make safe way to across sea. Visitors enjoy this legendary beach without a doubt.
Dirsek Buku lies on the south of the point; Ağıl Burnu. It indents to the west and makes an L shape. This bay provides the best shelter among the coves on the SW coast of Hisaronu Bay.
It gets swell penetration from the strong northerlies. There is a cosy restaurant with a quay.
If you are looking for a calm and peaceful place, Bozburun welcomes you with an untouched natural atmosphere.
Bozburun has a cute and small harbor with several restaurants and cafes. On Tuesday mornings local markets are set up in the center selling vegetables, food, and clothes. You can watch the sunset by the seaside, while lots of boats come and go to the harbor.
Also known as Kadirga Rock or Galleon Bay, Kadirga Bay is a favorite with local divers and with underwater archaeologists as well. Here you will find a massive rock that rises all the way from the seabed at a depth of about 15 meters above the surface.
While there is a wide array of marine life here, including a huge, very friendly resident grouper, the main attraction are the ancient amphorae, which are scattered along the bottom and in some cases stuck to the rocks. While most of them are broken, there are a few which are intact. In addition, you’ll find ancient anchors that date back to thousands of years ago around the shore of the nearby island where the lighthouse can be seen.
Directly in front of the lighthouse, you can view what remains of a sunken ship that dates back to ancient Greece. Taking anything from the site, even one tiny pottery shard, is forbidden by law. Depths here range from very shallow to 40 meters.
