"On the western side of the bay of Fethiye" Tersane Adasi by JLBG

Tersane Adasi Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 32 photos

We visited this part of Turkey on the occasion of a sailing trip from Fethiye to Marmaris. This was self steering but not as independent: we had hired a boat in a flotilla of an English company. There were twelve hired boats and an “admiral boat” with two guides. Each morning, there was a briefing presenting the sailing route for the day and giving next harbor. Between two harbors, we were on our own and had only to be in the evening moored in next harbor. In case of any problem, we could call the admiral boat, which never occurred.

We did not stay in Fethiye and as soon as we embarked on our boats did we sail to Kekowa island, in the bay of Fethiye, but on the west part of the bay while Fethiye stands on the east side.

    A picturesque sailing trip- nice photos. Love the house with fig tree (eco-friendly??) And those paintings- they are simple but quite stunning.

    The earthenware amphoras ( Desti =testi ): fortunately ,they are still in use in the many villages of Turkey.I agree with you that is a cause for concern.Thank you for sharing and attention.

    More fine photos and tips from your self-sailing trip with the "admiral boat" somewhere nearby. I'm sure that grilled fish must have tasted great after a day of sailing!
