You can anchor in 5-10 metres near the shore. This is a very protected cove but subject to violent gusts that can easily reach 40 knots. It may be prudent to take a line ashore, as the bottom is soft mud and with the gusts the anchor may drag.
This is a long indent that is located on the west end of Kekova anchorage (1,5 miles). There are no dangers on the north of the bay apart from a few small islets. Most of the yachters prefer to continue up to the end of the Bay. Depths are around 5 – 10 meters in the opening of 250 meters from the cost here. It has muddy ground and keeps anchor very well. The hills are covered with shrubs and olive trees on the coast.
There are restaurants with piers at the end of the cove. But these piers are for the tripper boats from Demre and Üçağız.
About a 30 minute walk to the west, there is Asar Bay, the ancient Aperlae whose ruins are fun to visit as they are totally deserted and quite extensive but it is hard going as the terrain is very rough. Animal pond is spotted on the way. Its sunken ruins are clearly visible.
