In Degirmen bükü several nice anchorages can be found. The most popular one is (wrongly) called english harbour (the original english harbour is on the W side) on the E side of Degirmen bükü. Just at the entrance of this bay, with the official name OKLUK LIMANI, is a statue of a mermaid, that was made by Sadun Boro, the famous turkish sailor, in 1995; on the statue he has written:
Ey dost, Allah bizlere emanet ettigi bu dünya cenneti Gökova'nin, sen de kiymetini bil, Onu koru sakin bozma, kirletme. Deniz kizini tekrar yollara düsürme.
my dear friend, God has given this paradise of Gökova in our trust, please know its worth. Take care of it, do not ruin or polute it. Let the mermaid come back on our trips.
On the right side of this bay are restaurants and jetties.
