The village is named after a local fish, which we would call Bonito. Though it boasts a number of guest houses, other than yachtmen, most visitors are Turks.
Many yachts that call here are refugees from Knidos who appreciate the more sheltered moorings. Once tied up you can relax on board or head to the long beach for a swim. There are several restaurants to choose from, along with several mini markets, but no bank or ATM.
Palamut is a place for a beer and a book, rather than a wild night out – it’s all very subdued. It probably won’t be the highlight of your trip but that more a reflection on how many superb stops are on offer than on Palamut itself.
