Beauties of Turkey: Datça

Dear Foreign Health Insurance customers, we are happy to share with you the Datça issue of our Beauty of Turkey series this week. If you're ready, let's all get to know Datca.


Datça is the second richest region in the world in terms of oxygen and the richest region in Turkey.

Datça Peninsula, where the Aegean and Mediterranean meet, is a town rewarded with its natural beauty and originality by taking more than its share of the freshness of the Aegean and the sincerity of the Mediterranean Sea.

Datça can be perfect for you if you want a holiday where you can explore the streets of Datça step by step, always find movement and have plenty of food and shopping. Datça center is separated into two regions as Old Datca and New Datça, and we can say that both regions have their own beauties when it comes to accommodation.

As the name of the new Datça region suggests, Datça is the new face of the center, in fact, the side where more urbanized and settled life flows. Another feature of the new Datça is that the center is on the seashore side. You feel the beauty of the sea everywhere with its streets lying out to sea, Datça Beach and Datça Port.

As for the region called old Datca, when you move inland from New Datca, you come during this small and quaintly towny region.

You will find the historical texture of Datça, cultural tourism, stone streets decorated with bougainvillea in this area. Our advice to our foreign health insurance (yabancı sağlık sigortası) customers is to choose this region for theirstay.
