The historian Strabon was right when he remarked of Datça's weather: 'God would send his beloved servants to Datça to live longer'. According to a myth while the Spanish pirates were passing by the coast of Datca, they disembarked people with Hansen's disease in Sarıliman Bay and these abandoned people recovered from their disease with the help of the clean weather of Datça.
