Nuri's beach bar and Restaurant
We anchored off and took a line ashore near this spot and then Jacky had a swim to find out what the quay facilities were.
It turned out that a boat could moor for free with water and power thrown in! We duly moved and have been here for 3 nights.
The owner - Ramazon is a charming friendly guy who has developed the head of the bay into a lovely quiet beach facility with a nice restaurant serving home made
reasonably priced food and snacks. The beach area has been carefully landscaped with gazebos, sun beds, shrubs and hammocks dotted around an old olive grove.
In addition there are two small log chalets which are available for hire. The only access is by boat and there are regular water taxi's from Kas which bring day visitors here.
The quay has been built this year and enables one to anchor and tie up either stern or bows to which suitable cleats for a strong mooring. This place is lovely so don't tell too many people
or it will too crowded! We have spent most of our time on the beach (no sand thank goodness) making use of the lovely shaded areas and swimming in the designated area which is buoyed off from the bay
to stop boats from coming too close. We took the water taxi to Kas yesterday and found this to be a delightful place though the harbour itself is very crowded with trip boats and not much room for yachts.
The town has some lovely old world buildings lining the narrow lanes with better quality products than the usual tourist stuff. Plenty of cafes bars and restaurants which had reasonable prices too. Certainly a place to take a holiday in as there seemed to be good activities on offer for those that wanted to do more than sit on a beach with some of the historic sites nearby and also outdoor activities like canoeing, diving, trekking and cliff parachuting.
On our return to the bay we were pleased to meet up with Loi and David from Salty Dawg who  had arrived and anchored off the quay (from the EMYR).
We are dragging ourselves away tomorrow and starting to head east again towards Alanya but will certainly return here in the autumn.
