SELIMIYE   36°42’∙5N  28°05’∙6E


Selimiye is a another pretty village set in a large bay and has a very cosmopolitan feel.   The restaurant staff  will be waiting to welcome you & assist you to moor on their own private jetties.   The town jetty is very often full of local boats.

You will love to take a walk along the waterfront lined with restaurants, pensions, shops and bars.   You may just like to swim off your yacht in the clear waters in the bay.  Perfect for swimming and relaxing.  

Selimiye is a great place to re-stock with provisions, fresh fruit & vegetables.  Amazingly there are 4 supermarkets in Selimiye.  One of these is stocked with a selection of imported goods: cheeses, cold meats, champagne & chocolates!!  In addition there are heaps of shops selling a variety of local handicrafts, jewellery, clothes  & handbags.  

Finally, if you are looking for a place to go running this the ideal spot.



Suzanne & Huseyin opened this wonderful restaurant 15 years ago.

Aurora has 10 moorings, water & electric are available on the dock and free WiFi to guests.  You can enjoy the shaded seating areas or relax in the sunshine on the spacious sundeck during the day.  As the sun sets the deck will transform into a restaurant.  You will find your table as you step off the stern of your yacht.   Suzanne will proudly present the menu to you with choices of Mezes & home cooked delicacies.

Aurora restaurant is 1st class, all food is freshly cooked to order with dishes that you will not find anywhere else. The menu  is full of Turkish specialities influenced from all over Turkey from the Black Sea to Anatolia. 

Their facilities include, clean toilets, hot showers, laundry service, book swap & WiFi.


Our Opinion

The food is fabulous, the location is stunning & the entertainment by Huseyin will make it a very memorable evening.  We advise you to reserve your table and mooring in advance as the restaurant is so popular.
