AĞA LİMANI (Büyük Koy) ANCHORAGE

Dalaman – Muğla – Turkey

This is a bay that many local people prefer to visit at weekends to rest with their families and have a picnic. There is a spring in the bay, which is available all year round. Wild animals also visit this bay when it is quiet to drink water and also to eat the food that has been left from the picnics.

Ağa Limanı lies 1 Nm north of point; Kızılkuyruk Burnu, indents like a slingshot, with a creek at the head of each arm. The bay is open to east. The cove on the west is Büyük Koy, the one on the northwest is Küçük Koy. The coves in Ağa Limanı are favourite stopover ports for boats cruising north and westward. When heading that direction, raise your anchor early before the breeze gets up to avoid cross-swell and choppy seas around Point Kurdoğlu and Dişibilmez.

Büyük Koy, extends to the east, it narrows and ends in a shingle beach. The water is deep and gently shelves ashore. Boats drop anchor off the beach and get a line ashore to the beach side. Strong westerlies send in swell. Ease your chain as much as possible and pay attention to the rocky bottom in some parts. A rough path takes you to Köyiçi (800 m), where you will find Roman and Byzantine ruins.
