Ucagiz Port

Ucagiz Port

Ucagiz Liman or Ölü Deniz or Tristomos is a land locked lagoon which is always calm, an excellent all around shelter. The water, however, is not clear but dirty. The bottom here is everywhere mud and reasonable holding, although some plough-type anchors will dig a furrow through it unless you let out plenty of chain. It is not unusual to need three or four attempts before your anchor holds. The best holding appears to be in the western arm of the inlet, to the west of the hamlet of Uçagiz, where the depths are 6-7 metres. One can also anchor in the eastern arm, although there is a slight chop here from the prevailing SW winds blowing in through the entrance. A new T-jetty has just been completed off the hamlet, where, once fully commissioned, around 20 yachts will be able to berth stern or bows-to.

There are at present just a few laid moorings, so it may be necessary to use your anchor. Depths off the jetty are around 4-5 metres. There are water and electricity points. Once the jetty is in commission, a charge will be made. There is a second jetty to the west, but this is for gulets only. There are a number of reportedly overpriced restaurants in the hamlet. To the east, accessible by a rather rocky path (wear sensible footwear) is the necropolis of the ancient Lycian town of Teimiussa, with numerous Lycian sarcophagi and a small acropolis on a rocky headland with excellent views out over Kekova Roads.
