If you are already coming or going from Kekova, a great area for a sailing day off or even to overnight is at Kocakari Bay. It’s quite off the beaten track that you won’t see much other tour cruise ships. One can relax, not have to think of anything else for the rest of the day but just relax on your boat or on the shore. The beach here on the bay is sandy and unblemished; perfect to lie upon with a book or to watch the clouds drift past.
The winds aren’t strong around this bay; the surrounding mountains keep it sheltered. Making Kocakari Bay a protected place to anchor for the night. Enjoy the spectacular sunset while here at the bay, as the sun lowers down to touch the Aegean Sea and the sky morphs into all different shades of warm colours. Whether it is still daylight or in the early morning a few great options to visit nearby are available.
Should you be looking for another bay to swim or snorkel you might want to cruise over to Gokkaya Bay or Yaglica Bay. Another option that is close to Kekova is the former fishing town of Ucagiz Village.
