Notes to sailors
  • Kumlubük provides all-round shetler except from easterlies. The depths gently shelve and drop to 10 m and the bottom becomes sand. There are two attractive anchorages on the southern shores. You can drop anchor in 10 m and take a line ashore. This anchorage is open to northerlies. 

  • The best shelter is in the northwest corner, off the beach; the bottom is sand and there is 5 to 6 m depth. Boats can be pushed off or anchored with a line ashore. There are several restaurants with piers along the coast.

  • Pay attention to mooring lines distance, Rodos-Marmaris ferry and hydrofoils run daily, they produce considerable waves and the anchorage becomes boomy.
