Ovabükü is a small, mountain-surrounded harbor on the Datça Peninsula. We wound up there only because when we tried to anchor in the crowded ancient harbor of Knidos, our anchor windlass did not respond and we had to quickly pull it in manually to avert disaster. We moved on to the next harbor. So Ovabükü it was, and it was a nice respite.
Anchor in 4 -5 metres on the western side of the bay.
