The town of Datça, 70 km (44 miles) west of Marmaris on the Reşadiye Peninsula (map), is a smaller version of Marmaris in its earlier days.
With a picture-perfect little yacht harbor and hills overlooking the blue Mediterranean, Datça makes a nice getaway from the bustle of Marmaris.
If what you want is lazy days, swimming, boat cruising, perhaps some bar-hopping and clubbing at night, Datça is for you.
In summer, ferryboats connect the Körmen Yacht Harboron the north shore of the peninsula, 9 km (6 miles) northwest of Datça, with Bodrum.
