Knidos

Part of our reason for going to Daçta was to visit Knidos.  We had planned to go to Daçta on the bike, a long and different story, but ended up going on public transport.  In Daçta we met friends and chartered a car with driver because there was no other easy way of getting to Knidos.  There may well be buses running the route in summer and boat trips, and it might even be possible to hire a quad ATV which would be a great way of getting around the peninsula but we were too early in the season for these options.  Much of Knidos has probably tumbled down the hillside and the stone taken and used elsewhere, but Knidos is still well worth the effort of getting to.

  1. Knidos has been one of those ‘knearly-got-there’ places – we have set out on three occasions now and each time have been distracted along the way – usually by flower/bug hunting.

    • The flora and fauna on the peninsula is well worth stopping for. So too the scenery, the mountains and sea, the views. Just getting to Knidos is spectacular.
