Bozburun is connected to Marmaris and is located in the west of the city, immediately opposite the Greek island of Symi, and may be reached by the rocky folded hills.
Apart from honey, olive and olive oil, mint, thyme, sage, eucalyptus, laurel, and black cumin are collected and produced as plants or by extracting their oils in the city, where agriculture cannot become widespread due to its difficult geological structure.
The history of Bozburun, which is located in the ancient Caria area, stretches back 3000 years. The town was constructed on the site of the ancient city Tymnos, which was located in a geographical area that has hosted several civilizations throughout history. It is said to have gotten its name from Bosprina, Daracia’s most important settlement and harbour. Turkish communities fleeing Mongol invasions migrated from Central Asia, crossing the Taurus Mountains to Marmaris and then Daraçya, where they lived alongside other ethnic groups in the region. Only the Turks remained in the town after the exchange movement in accordance with the Treaty of Lausanne.
During the summer, Bozburun, which is one of the major ports of call for charter blue cruise yachts, is a bustling and packed tourist destination, while the winter months are quieter. The closest air transportation to the town, which is 50 km away from Marmaris by road, is from Dalaman Airport, which is 150 km away. There is also a car rental company in the town with regular minibus services to Marmaris.
