Rhodes Guide

The Greek island of Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands and lies in the eastern Aegean Sea, to the north east of the island of Crete and south east of Athens. The island is also a short distance off the coast of Turkey. Rhodes Town is the island's capital and main town and its Old Town is a rich tapestry made up of different civilisations and cultures. The city's medieval walls, its fortress like buildings, the gates, bastions, narrow alleys, old houses, fountains and busy squares combine to make all visitors feel as though they have stepped back thousands of years. Outside of Rhodes Town the island has a number of small villages and beach resorts that are popular with tourists. The main ones are Faliraki, Lindos, Kremasti, Pefkos, Archangelos, Haraki, Koskinou, Afantou, Paradisi, Trianta and Embona.

From the island's port, ferry services depart to Piraeus by both conventional and high speed ferry. The island is also connected to the rest of the Dodecanese Islands, the Cyclades Islands and to Crete during the summer months.

Datca Guide

Datca is a town that is located in the south west of Turkey, around 65 km from Marmaris. The town lies on a peninsular that is surrounded by nature and has around 10,000 residents. The Aegean Sea is the body of water located off the north coast of the peninsular and the Mediterranean Sea is off the peninsula's south coast. Beautiful panoramic views of the Greek islands of Kos, Simi and Rhodes can be found from high points on the peninsular. The town remains relatively undiscovered by large numbers of tourists mainly because there is no airport nearby. However, on the plus side, those that do visit the town will experience a more authentic Turkey than perhaps more popular resorts. The sea and coastline around the town is beautiful and contains many little beaches and quiet bays on which to relax and enjoy everything the area has to offer.

The city's different quarters are Resadiye, Eski Datca 'Old Datca' and Iskele 'quay', which are separated by about a mile from each other with the centre of the town crossed by a short section of the Datca Stream. The original centre of administration was Resadiye and was later renamed Datca in 1928.
