This deep gulf is also known as the Gulf of Doris or the Gulf of Symi. It is very indented and has many lovely anchorages, yet it is not too crowded.

In general, the approach into the gulf and its anchorages is easy and presents no dangers.


The closest port of entry is Datça.



There are no ports in the gulf other then Marti Marina, but there are many lovely anchorages.

Selemiye Koyu is also known as Port Losta. There are several restaurants in this attractive cove that provide free docking (layed moorings) with water and electricity.

The most popular and upscale is Sarunya/wiki/Hisaronu_Korfezi_to_Teke_Burnu#.27.27Sarunya.27.27World icon.png Sarunya [[Hisaronu Korfezi to Teke Burnu#Sarunya|Sarunya]] 36°42.5′N, 28°05.3′E .

This lovely bay is dominated by the large Marti Marina. Call ahead on channel 73. You will be met by a Joker boat at the entrance of the marina and shown to berth. The marina provides all the services.

In addition to Marti Marina you can moor for free (provided you eat there) at the dock of Zuhal's Restaurant (just 1 nM N of Marti) and at Kadirs Restaurant at the SW tip of the bay. There are also three other restaurants at the southern end of the inlet, all with jetties, laid moorings, water and electricity and even (in some cases) free wifi.

Also you can anchor behind the little island with the Byzantine fort.

Danger: Watch out for the very shallow region on the SE end of the bay.

There are many places to anchor in this deep heavily wooded bay. You will have to anchor fairly deeply in 6-10 m. The holding is good on mud and weed, but the water is murky so that you cannot see the bottom. Take a line to a tree to minimize swinging and interfering with other boats.

At the N end of the bay there is a river which leads to a fancy combining/hotel while in the E side there is another private summer resort known as the "Solar Research Station." Sharks have been reported but I have not seen one.

Warning: Care must be taken entering the bay because of reefs and shallow areas. Study your chart carefully.

Anchorage icon Büyük Cati [[Hisaronu Korfezi to Teke Burnu#Büyük Cati|Büyük Cati]] 36°47.5′N, 28°0.9′E

Büyük Cati is totally land locked cove, surrounded by pine trees, and it is very calm although the water is kind of murky. It is a lovely place almost unreal. Anchor in 4 m, good holding. It is best to take a stern line to a tree.

To the E of Büyük Cati there is a smaller cove, Kuçuk Cati, also very nice.

Bekar Liman is a small cove in the 7-islands region. The entrance to the cove is only 2.7 m deep but inside the cove it is deeper, about 3.5 m. The holding is good but you must take a stern line to a tree.
