    We stayed in the south corner of the anchorage, and it was full. While the north part was almost empty. We read reports that the north part is full of industrial rubbish, debris, big stones and you can lose your anchor. We managed to find a small spot and anchored in the south part. Good holding, quiet and no swell. Beautiful city views. Also, if you sail with pets, there is the only vet in the area here in Datcha (besides Marmaris and Bodrum). Dropped 1 anchor at 15m.

    Almond center of Turkey. You may find different quality of almond in various shop. Do not miss to Visit “ Atatürk Caddesi” -street name- to find almond product sellers. There is 2 small protected bays in Datça. North and south bay. The best anchoring place is on south bay starting from the beach buoys. Good holding sandy bottom and protection. Try to find place for anchoring and mooring before 11:00. Municipality Port, reception by a port master. Water,electricity (17,-€ including port stay charge- 11,-€ without electricity and water supply). Diesel by tanker, black water discharge (during your stay on mooring about 8,-€) Regarding North bay: I did not stay there . It is good for anchoring sandy bottom. But it is reported that front of restaurant there is concrete block and it may be chained on north - south direction. As a matter of fact it is not advised to anchor in a depth lower than 5 meters. Other wise you have to dive to clear your anchor. It is preferable to choose your anchor point visually in a good weather condition until you become familiar to this anchoring area. Please check the photo for detailed information, in order to point out the critical area on the map which is not shown on the actual one. S/YAvantgarde 12 m

    Good holding in 5m, sandy but lots of small rocks around. Bar noise in the afternoon, not great music. Also music in the evening but good music. We had wind from every direction in the the 10 hours we were there. Started blowing 20 knots at 06.00 very localised and only in this bay, 5 knots out to sea.
