Beautiful geography, fascinating ruins...Do your reading ahead of time. We got here by taking a fairy from Bodrum to Datca, then hiring a cab. There's an OK lunch stop outside the ruins. Take a ton of water: very hot. Scenery is spectacular.

Try to go there from the sea. Road may be tough. Swim at the sea of this ancient city with two ports. Enjoy the view of the nice lighthouse. If you are around, don't miss it !

A must do and see! Just beautiful. A walk to the lighthouse is possible. No entrance fee with the Turkish Museum card which is valid to most of the museums and antique city sites. This place is so amazing and beautiful, breathtaking setting!!!
