There is a wooden pontoon in the bay for yachts that wish to moor. This bay is also covered with Günlük trees and if you take a walk around to explore the area you will find many types of plants, birds and wildlife.
Boynuz Bükü is sitated two miles NE of Tomb Bay. It is one of the few anchorages where it is possible to free anchor in reasonable depths of 8 – 10 metres close to the head of the bay. Holding here is mud and excellent. One can also anchor around the bay in the usual 15 – 20 metres with a line ashore to a bollard. Note that a reef extends for some 60 – 70 metres from the north side of the bay, so care is needed if arriving from this direction. It is a big bay located on the opposite coast of Yassıca Islands.
As it is in a spot hardly affected by prevailing winds, you can anchor anywhere in this bay, which is secure enough to shelter your yacht throughout the year. After staying in this bay for as long as you wish, let’s hoist up the anchor and unfurl the sails in search of another turquoise world. There are springs ashore and creeks running into the bay, so the shoreline is dotted with reeds and oleanders.
Boynuzbükü is a large bay on the west of Küçük Yılanlı Islet, indenting to the west and ends with a wide greenary layout. A stream on south comes into the sea. This side is shallow and marshy. The norhern and southern slopes are covered by pine trees. Finger points extend from both shores and there are10 – 20 m depths. You can tuck yourself in with a line ashore. The depth in the bight on NW is shallower. These anchorages provide adequate shelter in prevailing winds. It is one of the best bays in the Fethiye Gulf region to chill out in.
