Cold Water Bay

Sail into the cosy enclosed waters of Cold Water Bay located just west of Olü Deniz. Ali the owner or his son will assist you in setting your anchor before taking your line ashore for you.  They may want two shore lines so be prepared.  Ali knows the sea bed well and trust him when he tells you to drop your anchor then go astern.  It is also worth setting your fenders as you may find yourself near another yacht.

Take a well earned dip in the cool waters of the fresh water cold springs to the west side of the bay in amongst the rocks.  Later, after a refreshing drink onboard, boat ashore to walk up to a cliff sided restaurant which boasts stunning views across the bay and beyond.  Here, you can enjoy the varied menu of Turkish cuisine cooked on a bed of charcoal by the side of the seating area.

The restaurant is truly secluded and all its supplies, food and drink is brought in by boat then taken by donkey up the path to the restaurant as it would have been done centuries ago.

Wake up and jump into the cold waters before going ashore to experience a really typical Turkish breakfast with the sun breaking over the high mountains overlooking Olü Deniz.  Watch the vivid colours amongst the pine trees that grow all over the coastline.  As an alternative, take the 45 minute walk over the lip of the mountain behind the restaurant to visit Kaya köy, a derelict town abandoned by the Greeks in 1923.  Then return for that delicious breakfast before moving on.

Afterwards have some fun and do some cliff jumping into the bay!! (Click the  images at the bottom)
