    Terrible anchorage. Bad protection from waves both on free swing anchor and line to shore. Very rolly even for neighbor catamarans. Beautiful landscape. But no sleep.

    çökertme is the sole protected place situated in mid way of the route Bodrum to Okluk or Tuzla bay where most of the boats come here for an over night stay. It is sure some night the swells will disturb you. For some others they are sleeping well during the night swells. For people who don’t like the swells, the best solution is to take a line from shore in order to put the position of the central line of the boat vertically to the swells central line to reduce the side effect. In heavy whether time it is really the best protected bay of the area and better to stay there than to stay outside. You may found also some small bay just on the west of Çökertme. Personally, I préfère to eat in my boat to satisfy my personal request and to stay in calm area. Unfortunately there is no enough facilities to stay more than a day. Nothing special to see at shore. Also the area became a crowded place at high season. Also it is reported that in Ćökertme some people lost their dingy and dingy engine as well. This is not a familiar thing in the sea in Turkey. But after the Syrian affair, we used to hear too much such kind of events as everywhere in Europe. I advise you not to leave your boat unattended, specially after sun set.

    We came in for the first time last year and took up lazy lines from the jetty in the northwest cove where there was the Restaurant Kalamari. Sadly because of Covid, the restaurant didn’t open this year and the pontoons remained ashore. We anchored in 18m as shown in the picture with the little red circle. All other boats overnight, had lines ashore. As it was a very quiet night, we were happy to swing in the middle. Very peaceful and still night. Kept ourselves to ourselves and enjoyed another meal on board. Did not set foot ashore on this occasion.
