BODRUM - GULF OF HISARONU – BODRUM

Across the mouth of the Gulf of Gokova from Bodrum is Knidos, the Gulf of Hisaronu and more evidence of ancient settlements. In Knidos your gulet actually anchors in the original harbour with a view of the ruins of temples and theatres scattered about the slopes. Further into the gulf, the landscape becomes mountainous and in many bays there is evidence of Roman, Hellenistic, Byzantine and medieval habitation. You can find villages and remote bays where time seems to have stood still, and fertile valleys fed by mountain streams. In contrast, the pretty and sleepy harbour of Datca can become quite lively at night in the bars along the waterfront; the town is also a good spot for shopping for Turkish carpets and jewellery. Onwards from Datca you will explore more bays in the Gulf of Hisaronu – red, rocky, pine clad Bencik, green and fertile Keci Buku, Bozburun’s small harbour - once a sponge diving centre, and the magical bays of Selimiye and Orhaniye.

Generally our gulet cruises last 7 or 14 days, but in low season we may be able to offer 4, 5, 8 or 10 days. Please enquire for details.
