Anchorages

There are a plethora of beautiful anchorages along the south coast of Turkey, but none in which you would want to spend the winter.  The best source for anchorages and marinas is the Imray Turkey and Cyprus Pilot

Marmaris Bay has anchorages all around the perimeter of the bay, and several marinas available for foreign yachts.  Entry to the bay is normally through the center channel between the islands.
