Gelibolu, also known as Gallipoli “beautiful city”), is the name of a town and a district in Çanakkale Province of the Marmara region, located in Eastern Thrace in the European part of Turkey on the southern shore of the peninsula named after it on the Dardanelles strait, 2 miles away from Lapseki on the other shore. The port of Gelibolu lies on the N shore of the Dardanelles, 3 miles W of the entrance to the Sea of Marmara. Gelibolu is well known for sardine canning.

It is inland shelter. Water area is 850 m2.

There are two possible berthing areas for yachts. The eastern corner of the commercial harbour is one, and just inside the fishing harbour is the other. In each case care should be taken with the depths. There is good shelter from the wind in both harbours. It is also possible to anchor to the east of the harbour. There is good holding in the sand and shelter from the prevailing wind.

The northern side of the commercial harbour has now been dredged but there are no mooring facilities on the quay. The fishing harbour has also been dredged and it is possible to berth bows-to in front of the restaurant. This is a busy harbour and care needs to be taken to avoid the many ferries and fishing boats.

It is possible in settled weather to anchor close inshore just W of the harbour. However, this should only be attempted in settled weather as it is a very uncomfortable spot in even moderate winds.

Gelibolu Port
Gelibolu, which used to be a useful port of call for yachts transiting the straits, is now closed to yachts since the opening of the harbour of Lapseki on the southern shore directly opposite.
