A small bay sheltering behind Adatepe Burun with a 40 metre sounding shown at the entrance on Turkish chart 311.
There is a conspicuous watch tower on the headland to the east of the bay.
Approach is straightforward however care must be taken of a reef extending about 100 metres out from the middle of the by.
Good shelter from the Meltem although a small swell works its way in to the bay.
The only place to avoid this is on the jetty.
Drop your anchor about half a boat length from the stone breakwater and moor stern to at the jetty.
This can not be missed, a large and very rickety T shaped construction bedecked with flags from all nations.
The jetty was built by Ogun but is now managed by the local council who employ somebody to take your lines.
Ask for your receit if you don't want to pay too expensive!!
