A lovely spot with a sandy beach, rocks to snorkel around and a great restaurant, run by one of the area’s characters, Ogun. The restaurant offers more variety than most including fresh fish caught by Ogun’s cousin. You may get some free post dinner games thrown in too. These may involve someone getting wet, though Semra, Ogun’s sister may be there to keep things under control!

And if you need a break from the sailing, Ogun has a pension as well, though you might want to book ahead as it gets busy. More details on his website here: www.ogunplace.com

There are a couple of other restaurants here too (though to be honest I’ve rarely got past Ogun’s) and several, including Ogun’s offer showers. Basic provisions are available from the mini market but there’s no bank or ATM.

The sandy beach (a rare thing in the area) is a great place to swim. If you would like to venture further afield, Ogun can organise trips to Knidos or Datca – just ask at the restaurant.

In my book, it’s one of the best stops in the area – don’t miss it.
