There are a chain of small islands between the points;Teke Burnu and Taneli Burun. The coves on the eastern side, provide excellent all-round sheltering. On the southern shores of the Gökova Gulf there is an area that has four islands in front and where a gulf of more then two miles is formed between the coastlines. In all weathers between these islands and coves there is a calm site you can anchor.
Seven Islands are located on the south west region of the Gulf of Gökova. They are a chain of small islands close off the coast. The surroundings are unspoilt and wilder than further east. It is one of those great locations for sailing in and picking your favorite spot to drop anchor. The region is one of our favorite locations during blue cruises.
