After a long weekend in Istanbul, Datca is an unexpected but added bonus for us. we were there with the group of friend. First of all I'd like to suggest you to visit knidos with the boat, if you can.. if not there is a narrow, little hard rod is waiting for you. Knidos was a nice and rich city and famous mathematicians studied here and especially Sir charles newton shipped all site's statues to London ( you can read all of them in the guidebook). and if you want to see them you must go to British Museum..
And secondly Knidos is the meeting and mixing point of the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas.

Over the years we have visited much has changed. The kiosk that sold cold drinks is now a restaurant and now there is a proper entrance into the historical site. Interesting drive from datca, a few hairpin bends and mad Turkish drivers going 100 miles an hour but it all adds to the fun of driving in turkey. Much more relaxing to visit by boat and such an amazing site which has so much more that needs to be discovered.

The best time to visit this place is in April when the flowers are blooming , the weather cooler and you will probably be the only visitors. As many have stated the restaurant there is over priced so take supplies with you. I have visited many times and still haven't seen it all. I particularly love the remains of the Christian churches. The mosaic floor is charming. Climb up to the top - but make sure you are wearing suitable footwear for splendid views.

If you are going out onto this peninsula it is worth a visit, but do not expect anything on the scale of Ephesus. Afterwards it is nice to have a swim in the sea to cool down.

There are better beaches in the area. We didn't see the ruins cause it was too hot. The only restaurant there is overpriced.
