Bozburun

Bozburun
The small seaside town of Bozburun is in the region of Marmaris in the southwest of Turkey and has a permanent population of approximately 2,000 people. It is located on the coast of the Bozburun Peninsula (from where it takes its name) which is parallel to the Datca Peninsula in the south with its town facing across the sea to the town of Datca and the Greek island of Symi or Sömbeki in Turkish.


Bozburun is much quieter than the more internationally known and famous bays of Marmaris and Icmeler and is around 40km (25 miles) away from them driving along a winding road through wonderful natural landscapes with beautiful fauna and flora. Bozburun’s main source of income is from tourism, fishing, sponge diving and apiculture and is famed across Turkey for its thyme honey. The harbour is small and charming and one of the major stopping points for the Blue Cruise Voyages.

Bozburun
is also famed for the expert construction of gulet boats which are the equivalent of those built in Bodrum and Gulluk and its pristine waters are surrounded by coves.
In ancient times the area of Bozburun was famous for marble quarries and is possibly from where Marmaris acquired its name. The quarries are known to have been active until the 19th century as the travel writer Charles Texier mentioned them in his works. Marble has been one of the most important export products in whole region of the modern Muğla Province for many centuries with rich reserves starting from ancient Knidos on the tip of the Datça Peninsula to the inland modern installation at Kavaklıdere's which remains fully active today.
At present there are no quarries in the Bozburun area although research is currently being made using historical traces and documentation to locate them.
