About the location

A small settlement located on Datça peninsula, on the shore of a picturesque bay.

Azure sea and houses wallowing in almonds is a typical sight and a signature style of Palamutbuku.

The sea is very clean here with more than 20-meter visibility; you will often come across underwater fishing lovers and a lot of yachtsmen.

On the outskirts of Palamut there are sand and pebble beaches that stretch for over 2 km, which is not a usual thing to see in this area.

In the older days people used to be occupied in fishing, but today the settlement profits exclusively from tourism. There are several hotels on the territory of the settlement; villas are rented out to fans of a solo retreat.
