Domuz Adası (Island)

Domuz Adası is a privately owned island and has a very stylish set of buildings on the northern side of the island.  If you pass close by you will see that modern buildings are built either side of an impressive set of ancient ruins that may have been a Roman bath or hamam.  The second bay also shows a considerable number of ruins on the shore and some are quite large probably originally from Lycian times.  If you pass between the smaller island and the main island be careful to look out for the submerged ruins in the centre of the small bay, but you can clearly see them once you get up close to them.

You are allowed to anchor and take a line ashore, but walking on the island is not allowed.  There is a path that traverses the rocky coastline to the east and quite often you will see more than 10 donkeys walking along it.  The Islands name means “Donkey Island” in Turkish.
