Haıtbükü Bay and Beach is located within the borders of Datça town of Muğla province. It is located 20 km from Datça town center. Its sea is very clear and clean. The beach is covered with sand.  The beach is small and narrow. There are small pebbles in places. For this reason, I recommend bringing sea shoes. As the sea gradually deepens, it attracts great attention especially by families with children and people who know little about swimming.

Knidos Ancient City

The ancient city of Knidos, located on the Tekir Cape, at the junction of the Aegean and the Mediterranean at the end of the Reşadiye Peninsula in Muğla Province, Datça District, is one of the important centers of the Western Anatolian coastal cities.

The city consists of two parts, the mainland and the island part called "Kap Krio". Knidos has the appearance of a "double city", as Strabo has stated, and is terraced due to the mountainous nature of the land. The sea between the island and the land was filled later, thus two separate ports were obtained. Of these, the smaller one in the north was called the North Harbor. This port was used for military purposes. The southern port on the other side is reserved for trade ships. Today, the ruins of the breakwater that covers the harbor mouth and the tower in the northern harbor can be seen.
