Start your day with a visit to Kille Buku, a shaded bay located between Boynuz Buku and Tasyaka. It’s a great picnic spot with beautiful surroundings. Then, head to Bedri Rahmi Bay, named after the famous Turkish author Bedri Rahmi Eyuboglu. Here, you’ll see the famous “Fish Rock” that he drew in 1973 during one of his fishing trips. The bay is sheltered from winds, offering clear azure waters contrasting with green pines, olive trees, and oleanders.
Day 3: Sarsala Bay and Cleopatra’s Bath
Sarsala Bay is a natural bay that provides great swimming opportunities and is perfect for overnight anchoring. The inland scenery is delightful, with a valley leading inland through a dense forest of trees. Don’t miss Cleopatra’s Bath, a legendary spot that’s said to have been used by the queen herself. The water is said to have healing properties, so take a dip and see for yourself.
Day 4: Gobun Bay and Yavansu Bay
Off the Domuz Bay lies Gobun Bay, a mysterious and exciting place to explore. You’ll find tombs cut into the rock side and olive and pine trees covering the whole area. Yavansu Bay, also known as Sea Gull Bay, is a popular tourist spot with fig trees and small streams running down from the mountains. The name “Sea Gull” comes from the mosaics found in the bay and is linked to the ancient town of Arymaxa found at the top of the hill.
