    Knidos, important commercial prehistoric not well known city, build by Dores 9th century BC. Center of International trade of that time. Egyptian cereals mainly wheat is imported and the wine of the region exported to different destination. Before entering to 3000 years old port prepare your camera , keep your breath do not forget to read the history of Knidos from your archeological book previously provided. Than anchor at free on 5-12 meter in sandy bottom preferably on the south-west corner. This port is also a one night stop place for weekly cruiser boats which let the area crowded at each week-end. You may have a nice night view of the sky under the full moon period. Prevailing winds are from the W/NW side. No mooring buoy , but taking lines form the south and north side or at the SE entry rocky side is possible without disturbing anchored yachts. Crystal clear water, very good for swimming, Sea water colder 2-3 C degree than the other area. Wooden pear available for mooring for 6-10 yacht supposed to be free for restorant guests.

    Sandy anchorage with algae. Holds well at about 9 meters. even with gusts up to 40 Kts. Landlines useful. Overcrowded in summer. Arrive early. Restaurant expensive. Snorkeling at the pier very nice. Many squid.

    Sandiger Ankergrund mit Algen. Hält gut auf ca. 9 Metern. auch bei Böen bis 40 Kts. Landleinen sinnvoll. Im Sommer etwas überfüllt. Frühzeitig ankommen. Restaurant teuer. Schnorcheln an der Mole sehr schön. Viele Tintenfische.

    Archeological site very beautiful and interesting. Take your time to visit it. The harbor is very well protected from the sea but a lot of wind comes in as it’s at the cape of Datcia peninsula. Don’t anchor too close to the restaurant. The white bottom is not sand but flat stone covered from a little sand or very hard sand. West part seems to be better than the East side.
