Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisaronu Gulf from the Gokova Gulf but closer to Hisaronu. It has a very narrow entrance but a unique view when you get inside. According to Heredot; in 550 B.C. Persians were at Datcha peninsula with an army commanded by Harpagos. The Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisaronu Gulf and the Gokova Gulf as a defense line against the Persians. That way they would make two peninsulas into one island, thus reinforcing their defense. They started with diligence and put in a lot of effort. However, in the end they could not manage to complete the task and the city was conquered by the Persians. After a short walk up to the top of the hill in Bencik you can see at the same time the fantastic views of Gokova and Hisaronu Bays. Dinner and overnight stay at Bencik bay.
