You should take a short walk up to the top of the hill in Bencik, you can have at the same time the fantastic views of these two gulfs. In 550’s B.C. the Knidos people wanted to dig a tunnel in Bencik, the narrowest land piece of the peninsula as defence line against the Persians. That way they tried to get Datca part as an island to make a stronger defence. However, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians.
