Photographer's Note

God sends its most beloved people to Knidos (Datca) to have long lives.


(the proportion of oxygen in the air is one of the highest
in the world.)

Datca has shimmery, deep blue, 52 big and small coves which have the quality of an aquarium on the coastline of 235 km which connects Mediterranean and Aegean Sea.

Our county, which does not have big residence centers and industry facilities, has an extraordinary clean sea as well as its air. Although our country has beaches with blue flags, it is also possible to have a sea delight at other points with peace of mind.

Datca is exactly like an aquarium heaven with all neat beaches and coves that it has at the county centre and surrounding areas. It is another kind pleasure to have sea delight with its neat waters and blue flag coves.

If you pass by Datca you should absolutely see the Old Datca. Being old, being the first settlement area and having a majority of the old ruined buildings. Now those ruined buildings are raised one by one. Old Datca houses which have two floors at most has given a visual richness with stone dressing which is a product of art and also with its narrow streets ornamented with begonvilles.

Knidos is carried to Tekir Cape in 4th century B.C. for commercial reasons. The city which has been established against Hippodamus plan has temples, holy areas, theaters and magnificent buildings which are all more beautiful than one another. Lots of scientists and artists have grown up here. Second largest and most important medical school of the history is opened in Knidos. Beauty of the Statue of Aphrodite, who is considered to be the Goddess of love and beauty, which has been made by Sculptor Praxiteles as a naked woman becomes legendary. People come from lands far away to visit Knidos just to see this statue.

Richness of Datca in terms of plants is known since the ancient ages. It is very clear that this quality has played an important role for Knidos to be an important medical center. Climate qualities are the major reason of Flora richness. When you say Datca flora almond comes to mind first. It does not matter if you think of green almond of the spring or of the almond kernel after the spring. Datca almond has an important existence in both terms.

Windmills by the side of Marmaris highway which we have seen while we were passing through Kizlan area.

Solemnity of the olive oil, the fact that it is the most noble of all the trees must be resulting from the fact that it is a tree which comes from times the age of which cannot even be estimated. Olive oil which is the juice of olive fruit gains different tastes in every region where it gets its water and wind. there is nothing to say about the taste of golden fluid of Datca which turns to green from yellow.

The sea and the sky are all before you during this deep blue trip, at every tone of the blue. Datca is a peninsula which is virgin in all aspects and which feels itself prepared for world tourism with its natural beaches, its sea and sun.

Datca almond is the most delicious almond of Turkey. We have various species of almonds such as Nurlu, Ak, Kababağ, Dedebağ, Sira and Dis almonds. The most quality one is Nurlu whereas the one that is most easily eaten is Dis almond with thin shells. The almond which has a green outer shell and which is eaten fresh is called green almond (cağla). Its Latin name is Prunos Amygdalus and Prunusdulcis. One of them is a sweet almond species while the other is a bitter one and they contain phosphor, zinc, copper, calcium, iron and special oils. It has a high nutritional value and it is used in many areas in pharmaceuticals. Datca almond is accepted as the best almond in the world and American almonds come second.
