  Secluded Coves
by redrhino12

This is a very good boat trip.
Take the bus along the Bozburun Penninsular from Icmeler,this takes about 45 mins to were the boat will leave.
Only 26 people are allowed on this boat and this is the amount of sunbeds on the top deck.
When you arrive at the boat you are offered tea or coffee before you set off on this adventure.
Music is always quiet and layed back,the scenery is georgeous and the sea crystal clear.
You will visit a ruined monastery on a hilltop were you can take pictures looking out over the bay to the mountains.
After a couple of swimming stops you then arrive at the American House,this is a huge abandoned estate built by a Turkish man for his American wife,and for reasons unbeknown to me was just left as you see it,furniture,beds etc all inside the house which is kept locked,there is a caretaker looking after the property.
Fantastic views are to be seen from the patio at the front of the house ,peace and tranquility reign.
It is while you are berthed here lunch is taken,bread,salad,meatballs,chicken ,more than enough to satisfy anyones appetite.

Saying goodby to these peacefull surroundings you then head out across the bay and visit another couple of secluded coves again for swimming breaks before returning to the small jetty were we set off.

A bus journey again brings us back to Icmeler
