Asin Liman or Port Isene or Kuria is an ancient harbor (formerly Iasos) in the almost landlocked Asin Körfezi. It a pleasant anchorage surrounded by the ruins of the ancient city and overlooked by a walled acropolis.
Anchor moor to the quay if you can find space. Depths at the quay are a bit over over 2 meters but greater than 2.5 meters a couple of meters off. The bottom here is mud and provides good holding. Good shelter in the prevailing winds.
Water and electricity can be arranged on the quay.
Iassos used to be supplied with several good restaurants, there are two relatively modest ones in operation.
A climb to the ancient fort of Iassus is must. The city was founded by the Peloponnesians in about 900 BC.
Danger: The ancient breakwater is submerged and not always visible. The approach should be made some 15 – 20 meters off the old Byzantine tower on the starboard side.
Warning: With strong southerlies the anchorage is uncomfortable and may be dangerous.
