My Vacation in Datca (English/Turkish)

in travel •  4 months ago

I spent the summer vacation in Datca district of Muğla. Datca is located on the southwestern tip of Turkey. The lower part of the peninsula overlooks the Mediterranean Sea and the upper part overlooks the Aegean Sea. It's a sea holiday paradise. We stayed in Billurkent holiday village in Datca. While I was on vacation, I usually wrote my asseys on the deck chair with a laptop on my lap.

There was a mother cat and three kitties in the garden of the house we were staying in. Thanks to the kitties we've had a lot of fun during the holiday. The only bad thing about cats was that the mother cat scratched all the children around, including my daughter.


In the early days, the air was quite hot and humid, fortunately it cooled a little bit towards the end.


On the coast of Billurkent, there were small ponds on both sides of the beach like below. It was a perfect environment for taking pictures.


The islands across the beach add color to the landscape.


Because there were not many settlements around, we were able to watch the stars clearly on the beach at night. It was meteor shower time, and I watched the floating stars a lot. Unfortunately I didn't have the equipment to photograph the stars.

Taking foot pictures on the beach once was fashionable. Even if I was delayed in this fashion, I've made it up. But I wanted to approach it from a different angle.


I usually took long walks on the beach in the evenings. By the way, I didn't neglect to record the view on my cell phone camera.


We watched Turkish singer Sila's concert at the amphitheatre, which is seen in the cover picture. The ambience was beautiful.

So we left behind another holiday with bitter and sweet memories.

Thanks for reading.

Yaz tatilini Muğla'nın Datça ilçesinde geçirdim. Datça Türkiye'nin güneybatı ucunda bulunan bir yarımada. Yarım adanın alt kısmı Akdeniz'e, üst kısmı Ege denizine bakıyor. Tam bir deniz tatili cenneti. Datça'da Billurkent tatil köyünde kaldık. Tatilde olduğum süre boyuca yazılarımı genellikle şezlongta kucağımda laptopla yazdım.

Kaldığımız evin bahçesinde bir anne kedi ve üç yavrusu vardı. Tatil boyunca bizi epey eğlendirdiler. Kedilerle ilgili tek kötü olay anne kedinin kızım da dahil olmak üzere çevredeki tüm çocukları tırmalaması oldu.

İlk günlerde hava epeyce sıcak ve nemliydi, neyse ki sonlara doğru biraz serinledi.

Billurkent sahilinde plajın her iki yanında aşağıdaki gibi küçük göletler oluşmuştu. Ortam fotoğraf çekmeye gayet uygundu.

Kumsalın karşısındaki adalar manzaraya renk katıyordu.

Çevrede pek fazla yerleşim olmadığı için geceleyin kumsalda yıldızları çok net biçimde izleyebildik. Meteor yağmuru zamanıydı üstelik, kayan yıldızları bolca seyrettim. Ne yazık ki yıldızların fotoğrafını çekecek ekipmanım yoktu.

Bir aralar kumsalda ayak fotoğrafı çekmek modaydı. Bu modaya gecikmeli de olsa ben de ayak uydurdum. Ancak olaya farklı bir açıdan yaklaşmak istedim.

Akşamları genellikle kumsalda uzun yürüyüşler yaptım. Bu arada cep telefonumun kamerasına takılanları kaydetmeyi ihmal etmedim.

Kapak resminde görülen amfi-tiyatroda Sıla'nın konserini izledik. Ortamın ambiansı çok güzeldi.

Böylece acı tatlı anılarıyla bir tatil daha geride kalmış oldu.

Really very beautiful place. Just one suggestion ! Don't travel with plans . Unplanned trips are memorable !

That is such a beautiful place. I need to put it on my bucket list. And how can you go wrong with kitties? haha well except for the scratching part. I feel like there are too many items on my bucket list and so little time! haha

wow.. great scenery you capture there sir....

Tatil için seçeneklerimi gözden geçirdiğim şu günlerde bana güzel bir seçenek daha gösteren başarılı bir içerik. Yazı için teşekkürler.

I liked the first photo very much, it's awesome my friend, awesome.... 💪✌️😍

On my bucket list!

My Brother went to Turkey last year. I wish he was a photographer because he didn't have scenery like this! Beautiful!

This place is so wonderful and mesmerizing. Sometimes after I see these kind of places, I just feel like packing everything up and shifting to these places..

It looks great!

Omg, its like private beach, i don't see any visitor there

I wish to visit Turkey soon #LoveTurkey


The country has so much history. Highly recommend reading up the eastern roman empire and the crusades.


It is the best time to visit Turkey.

Prices are very cheap for tourists because of Turkish Lira exchange rates.

Turkey is no doubt a great country to visit. upvoted, followed and resteemed.



A beautiful place with confidence was excellent weather for relaxation.

Datca has always been my favorite holiday destination. My friend from high school has a holiday house in Datca Aktur and I went there twice. It's a quiet, peaceful area and the beaches are crystal clear. I miss it so much!

Greetings from Cape Town


Aktur is on the way to Billurkent. Very nice place.

Greetings from İstanbul

This is a very good place. But The service of the hotels is not that much good . So the interest in this place decreases.


In terms of service quality İstanbul is the best.

Have fun, nice place...

Stunning area! the best and maximum beautiful things inside the global cannot be seen or maybe touched - they have to be felt with the coronary heart. the vicinity is incredible, and the photos are the first rate.


Thank you :)

Very nice view

Your pictures are beautiful and it looks like a very beautiful country to visit. It looks very peaceful there.

I love so much Alacati and so so so so so BEAUTIFUL PLACES


Next time you should also see Cappadocia :)
