In addition, there are three mooring buoys further out where yachts may swing. Nearby anchoring is also possible in 14-16 metres, although shelter is not as good and there will be swell from winds. Some yachts anchor on the south side or on the west side and take a line ashore to the rocks – although the bottom is sand, weed and rocks and not the best holding.
There are church ruins, a few crypts and a well-preserved fresco of St. Christopher. The crystal clear waters of the bay and the fascinating marine life around the reef make Karakaören a favorite destination for snorkelers and scuba divers.
