Dirsek

After exploring the islands that lie between Selimiye and  Dirsek, anchor at Dirsek - a long inlet lying immediately east of Agil Burnu.  It is a lovely, tranquil anchorage, accessible only by boat on a Dirsek yacht charter and home to a solitary restaurant renowned for its jumbo garlic prawns. Sounds like a good place to stop for lunch? We hear there are charterers who like the prawns so much that they stay for dinner too and then retire to their deck to relax over a few drinks under one of the starriest skies ever seen.

 

Mooring:

  • There are several anchorages in the inlet.  In the south-west there is a wooden jetty from a restaurant with around 6.5-feet (2-meter) depths off it. 
  • Care is needed of the rocky ledge running round the coast immediately south and east of the jetty.
  • Anchor and go stern-to the jetty or take a long line to it. 
  • Alternatively, in 26-33 feet (8-10 meters) at the head of the bay and take a long line ashore.
  • You can anchor in the south-east corner of the inlet off some ruins.
  • Watch out for the shoal patch running out from the coast, although it is about 10-13 feet (3-4 meters) deep
