Bademli Village is located on the south east of Dikili and offers great views and attractions to its visitors with its very long beautiful coasts and wonderful sandy beaches. The coasts and the Bademli Cove is popular for the visitors with its beaches and sea. The coves on the east, Kalem Adası and Garip Ada lie on north – south orientation.
Bademli, which is 10 km away from Dikili is a green hidden natural port. When the weather permits, it is a great pleasure to swim in the turquoise sea among the islands just in front of the port. The cove is surrounded with olive trees. The coast has thermal water springs. Sea bass and octopus are among the tastes to be tried at Bademli. The Garip and Kalemli islands are places to be visited.
Bademli Limanı is on the south of Adatepe Point, on the eastern end of Dikili Strait. It affords all round shelter with attractive settings. Bedemli Liman is one of the most beautiful anchorages in the Aegean Turkey. It is relative isolated and the water is crystal clear blue-green and it is very well sheltered from the meltemi. All of these plus the hamam (hot spring house) on the E shore.
Note: When the prevailing northerly winds exceed force 4 / 5, a strong land breeze sets in from the east during the late evening, often persisting until dawn. Gusts of 20 – 25 knots are not unusual. Ensure your anchor is well in and set for this wind if staying overnight in these conditions.
