Orhaniye Cove and Kızkumu


Are located in Keçi Bükü in a very picturesque cove.  There are various historical places surrounding this area of the Bozbrun Peninsula.  The island found in Keçi Bükü, is called Kale Adası which means “Castle Island” and has the ruins of a castle wrapped around the rocky sides.  It is believed that the castle belonged to the ancient city of Baybassos and it is said that the people of Baybassos brought water to the castle from the waterfall in Turgut through aqueducts and a pipe laid under the water.


There is a very shallow sand bar that splits the head of the bay in two and is approximately 600 metres long and is ankle deep which is called Kız kumu.  There is a legend that a girl who wanted to meet with her lover put some sand in the hem of her skirt and planned to fill the sea with the sand to get to him.  However there was not enough sand and she was drowned.  The word Kız kumu means "girl sand".


There are the ruins of an ancient monastery in the grounds of Marti Marina and Hotel.


Hisarönü at the head of the main bay was originally the ancient city of Castabos which is located on top of Pazarlık Hill at Hisarönü village.  The temple of Hemethea, in Ionic style and built on a pedestal is dated back to the 4th century B.C.  The Hemethea sanctuary, mentioned by chronographer Diadoros, is further evidence  by an inscription found on the site.  The theatre on the southern slope is in ruins.


Baybassos which was part of the Rhodian Peraea and was important for its association with a temple complex to the south.
