Datca Holidays – Picturesque setting between two seas
To reach Datca located on the breathtaking 80 km long Datca Peninsula would only take a relatively short drive from the resort of Hisaronu or Marmaris, however this picturesque town feels like miles and miles away from any of the rushed touristy places. On your holidays in Datca, take a relaxed drive down the peninsula opening up some gorgeous views of the Mediterranean Sea coastline on one side and the Aeagean Sea on the other. On your Datca holidays, the air is filled with fragrance of almond and olive trees, zesty orange groves and the unspoilt beautiful natural scenery on the dramatic backdrop of the mountains is completed by pretty windmills dotted along the way. No wonder the whole Peninsula is one of Turkey’s treasures and therefore declared a National Natural Reserve.
