Day 3

Day 3 Aktur Bay, Benchik Bay

Aktur Bay on the Datca Peninsula has received an amazing award as the best bay for gulet cruises in Turkey. This is some achievement and shouldn’t be discounted. Aktur is located between Datca and Kurukabuk and is the narrowest part of the peninsula. The two spheres of water are constrained by a narrow patch of land. The Persian army back in 550 BC (Xerxes & 300) built a tunnel so that it could go directly to Gokova Bay in order to accelerate the advance of their fleets. Today, Aktur Bay is a vision of beauty that many are trying to emulate, which is perhaps why it is so highly regarded.

* Directly opposite Selimiye in Hisaronu Bay is the small Benchik Bay. It is right by Gokova Bay and is well worth a visit even if you don’t like the place due to the lack of amenities. The natural beauty of this place makes it possible to hold many unforgettable photo sessions.
