Datça Peninsula 4 days
This 4-day self-guided tour follows some of our favorite paths on the Carian Trail, traversing the north and south of the Datca Peninsula. Get ready for 360-degree sea views, quaint village architecture, amazing Aegean food, and some of the most remote, untouched beaches that Turkey has to offer.
What to expect
After your transfer from the Dalaman Airport, you’ll arrive at the trailhead and start hiking. The rocky path immediately rises above the sea, with great views all around. You’ll pass the settlements of farmers and shepherds, old and new, as you traverse the rural hinterland of Datca. After merging onto the Carian Trail, the path loops back and down to Kargi Beach with more views of the sea accompanying your final kilometers. A short transfer takes you to your hotel in the main town of Datca.
Overnight in Sapphire Hotel, Datça
After breakfast, you’ll be transferred along a rough road to the trailhead above Domuzcukuru Beach. The only way to access this pristine bay (and many of the beaches on today’s hike) is on foot or by boat. After a steep descent down to the sea, the rest of your day will be spent traversing the coast, hiking up and over the hills to reach multiple remote beaches. The hike ends in the bay of Hayitbuku, and a short transfer takes you to your hotel in Palamutbuku.
Overnight in Bük Butik Hotel, Palamutbükü
Today’s hike starts from the traditional village of Yazikoy, full of almond and olive groves and whitewashed houses. After a transfer to the village, you’ll hike down a rough dirt road to Degirmenbuku Bay. Merging onto the Carian Trail, you’ll then follow a thin, coastal path with amazing views of the sea and lighthouses. The hike ends by descending directly into the ancient ruins of Knidos. After exploring the ancient site, you’ll be transferred back to Palamutbuku.
After checking out of your hotel, the transfer car will take you along a rough, but scenic, road to Mersincik Bay, on the northern coast of Datca. This coast is nearby inaccessible, its densely forested slopes devoid of any asphalt roads or settlements. From the trailhead, you’ll once again traverse the coastal hills and remote beaches, this time in humid vegetation. After a full day of Aegean wilderness, you’ll finish your hike in Yerimli and be transferred straight to the Dalaman Airport.
