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

A fjord like inlet lying from the north of Dişlice Island, curves into Datça Peninsula for about 1,5 M. Pine trees cover the slopes right down to the shoreline, which features many coves. This is one of the prettiest bays in Hisarönü. Care is needed for the reefs and rocky patches in the vicinity.

While approaching from the east; there are reefs on our starboard, extending out for about 75 m. A 1,5 m deep rock lies 400 m east of Dişlice, it is marked by a conical buoy with a N cardinal top mark. Extreme caution is required. Another rock patch lies 10 m north of Dişlice Island. It is always the best to keep some distance off the points in Hisarönü.

Bencik provides all-round shelter. The anchorages on both sides provide sheltering from the prevailing wind. Boats anchor in 8 – 15 m and take a long line ashore to a tree. Pay attention for shallow patches off the finger points.
