Bozburun  36°41.46′N, 28°02.56′E

Bozburun is an attractive village that hugs a small, lovely harbour.  It lies on the Hisarönũ Peninsula at the head of a bay, opposite the Greek island of Simi.  The town is sheltered by several small islands and its setting is quite stunning.

There is an attendant in the harbor who will direct you in, usually side-to. There is water and electricity (included with the harbor dues) and fuel can be delivered.

Bozburin is charming and somewhat eccentric, being something of a magnet for entertainment and media types looking for a quieter life by the sea in Turkey.  There are many places for food and a cold drink, as one famous visitor, Bill Gates via his megayacht, could attest.

Lined along the walk that stretches from the harbor are a series of hotels with beach bathing platforms and small cafes.  A choice of any of them will provide a refreshing swim, food, refreshments and some pleasant “chill time.”

For mooring, go stern- or bows-to on the town quay where convenient.  Alternatively, anchoring is possible eastwards of the harbour where you can take a line ashore.  There are a few shallow patches to watch but, overall, there are sufficient depths.


  • Many restaurants, cafes and bars
  • Small town but with sufficient provisioning
  • Harbour with electricity, water and fuel
  • Beach and numerous swimming platforms from the rocky shoreline
