Bozburun lies in a small valley surrounded by the rocky dry hills of the Datça Peninsula. Set against the harbor, Bozburun is a peaceful place for strolling along the waterfront, watching shipwrights assemble the skeletons of embryonic yachts and just enjoying the motion of the ocean. While locals simply jump off tire rocks into the sea, timid tourists may prefer the small beach to the right of the harbor.
TRANSPORTATION AND PRACTICAL INFORMATION.
To get to Bozburun from Marmaris, catch a dolmuş at the rather distant otogar (1 hr.; 10:30am, noon, 2:30, 5, 7pm; return 6:30,8:30,10am, noon, 4:30pm).
