KUSADASI MARINA APPROACHES

Kusadasi. Approach to the marina, looking NNE.

Conspicuous. From the NW the town, spreading up the slopes behind Kusadasi Roads, can be seen from some distance off. From the S a tall white tower (part of a hotel complex) on Aslan Burnu is conspicuous closer in, the fort on Guvercin adasi and the marina breakwater are easily identified. There are often a number of large cruise ships anchored out, or berthed at the piers in the S of the bay.

Dangers.
1.Karakasi Banklari. A reef with least depths of 2.1 m (7ft) over part of it extends in a NW direction for nearly a mile from Karga Adasi. (Karga Adasi lies about one mile N of Aslan Burnu.)
2. Petroma Kayasi. A reef with some rocky patches just submerged extend in a westerly direction for just over half a mile from Yalanci Burnu. The latter lies close SW of Guvercin Adasi. Both reefs are difficult to spot and should be given a wide berth.
3. Akburun Kayasi. Extend 200 metres in westerly direction from the root of the outer mole of the marina.
