Chart of of Dikili Harbor

Dikili is a commercial harbor across from Lesvos, yet it is a safe place to leave the boat for a visit to Pergamon 28 km away. It can be rather dusty from coal powder, depending on the wind. The people are very friendly.

  • We checked out of Turkey one hot Sunday from Dikili. It took us over 4 frustrating hours chasing various officials throughout the town. They did not seem to be familiar with yachts. Better go to Ayvalik if you can. --Istioploos 09:31, 20 June 2008 (MDT)
