To get to this peninsula you need to leave Marmaris via the main highway, called the D400, in the direction of Datca. About 13 miles (21km) west of Marmaris you take the southern road, leaving the main highway and heading for Orhaniye and Selimiye, driving past the popular resort town of Hisaronu.
as we travel up towards the mountain we pass through some beautiful countryside, then from quite a distance we can look back on Marmaris and see the MSC Splendida in port!
Orhaniye is the next village along from Hisaronu, just a 10 minute drive, or a short Dolmus (local bus) hop away and home to the modern Marti Marina.
In the middle of the cove is an island, home to the ruins of a castle, believed to belong to the ancient city of Baybassos. You can visit the island by hiring a ‘caique’ (small boat) and then following the path to the castle. At the top you’ll be rewarded for your efforts with a beautiful view.
Orhaniye, Orhaniye bay, Orhaniye village, all refer to the Orhaniye, near Marmaris, Mugla. It is protected by strict government laws against the excesses of mass tourism, so it is under developed with no high rise developments. The Bozburun peninsula is at the point where the Mediterranean sea meets the Aegean sea so Orhaniye village has a wonderful climate all year around.
and as we reach Bozburan..... it is time to continue our journey towards Taslica. Taslica is the last village on the Bozburun Peninsula that can be reached by car. Perched at the end of the Peninsula it enjoys fantastic panoramic views of the ocean that surrounds the village on three sides.
