    We stay here 4 night 7 to 10 September 2020. Before going check well the weather condition of the area. Perfect place in light weather condition. Meltemi in the afternoon send some waves from south direction. If the Meltemi starting mainly in the afternoon coming from the west side is not more than 15 knot, the height of the waves coming in from the south direction in the bay is not effective. September and October it is fantastic. You may be alone in your boat to satisfy your naturist swimming and other water sport as you wish. Completely isolated from the land people, no any facilities. If you have enough water supply you may have a very quite holiday as a couple. I took a line from the rocky side in order to face the waves from the bow. Put your anchor at about 8-10 meters on a sandy bottom ( avoid partially weed parts-be sure for your anchor is holding well for night staying), about min 50-55 meters chain length. Be careful for stony bottom about 15 meters from the shore. Prepare about min. 50 meter shore line in order to keep the boat min 35-40 meter away from the shore. The depth under my boat is about 4 meter. Sandy bottom part holding well. Avoid all South weather and heavy Meltemi although it is rare at this season (North-West). Do not worry, Selimiye is a bay containing a lot of protected area from wind of any direction and any force. On your west side “kurucabük bay” and opposit to it on the south “Dirsekbükü” are the well known protected and anchoring area a 3-5 miles away. I advise you to reach early before 10:00 o’clock to find the best sandy bottom corner. Not: At this large bay you may find many other quit and personal area . I am sure, you will miss your trip and you will be eager to come back again the coming season. After 15 september it might be more quite and free of Turkish goulettes.
