Uçağiz (ancient Teimiussa)

Uçagiz Liman or Ölü Deniz or Tristomos is a land locked lagoon which is always calm, an excellent all around shelter. The water, however, is not clear but dirty. The bottom here is everywhere mud and reasonable holding, although some plough-type anchors will dig a furrow through it unless you let out plenty of chain. It is not unusual to need three or four attempts before your anchor holds. The best holding appears to be in the western arm of the inlet, to the west of the hamlet of Uçagiz, where the depths are 6-7 metres. One can also anchor in the eastern arm, although there is a slight chop here from the prevailing SW winds blowing in through the entrance.

A new T-jetty has just been completed off the hamlet, and can take around 20 yachts  stern or bows-to. There are  tailed moorings  lines, although it may be necessary to use your anchor. Depths off the jetty are around 4-5 metres. There are water and electricity points and you will be charged to stay overnight.  The village is rather quaint and has a number of restaurants dotted around the centre with three on the waters edge (Onur’s, Hassan’s and Ibrahim’s) and some are said to be overpriced, but the food is good quality.

To the east, accessible by a rather rocky path (wear sensible footwear) is the necropolis of the ancient Lycian town of Teimiussa, with numerous Lycian sarcophagi and a small acropolis on a rocky headland with excellent views out over Kekova Roads.  You can also start a kayaking day out to explore the sunken city and Gökkaya Limanı.
