One of the secluded olive orchards at the west shores of Çökertme. Good anchoring at settled weather. The distance to the restaurants is often welcomed. Between Çökertme and Ören there is a lonely boatyard. It serves the Didyma area and may come in handy for some emergency. Haul out by sledging.
Ören (Gereme, Keramos, N 370 01,8′ E 0270 58,5′): Good provisioning, good road to Milas and to the Milas Bodrum International Airport; 70 km. Site of the very regretful Gökova Electric Plant.
The jetty of Ören. Not really welcoming, but the settlement Ören has due to numerous Turkish tourists a small industrial estate, fair provisioning and not too expensive restaurants. To the right the chimney of the very unfortunate energy plant in Ören.
