Nigel Richardson’s trek along Turkey’s remote Carian Trail was an evocative view of a land.  We have visited frequently during the past ten years, albeit from the sea.



Bozburun is a laid-back village where fishing boats jostle with sailing yachts for space in the tight harbour.  In this village the local tailor will speedily make you a traditional cheesecloth shirt with long sleeves for protection from the midday sun.

In the bay, gullets, fishing boats and adventurous skippers of yachts navigate the tricky passage of Kizil Adasi. When not doing so, we have seen on numerous occasions, a pod of dolphins flirting with sailing boats.



At nearby Selimye we have watched, over several years, the construction of traditional wooden gulets.  later they are hauled by man and machine to a makeshift slipway over the beach. We have enjoyed the food in the family-owned restaurant Sardunya with its seasoned meats and fish served on the quayside.   During the cooler days of early spring and late autumn we have dined inside, in its attractive restaurant complete with log fire.

We have bought, straight from the gardens, fresh fruit and vegetables.  We have enjoyed the village bread cooked outside in wood-burning ovens. 

On land, the dolmus lurches between the villages and the main road where there is a bus to the parched ruins of Knidos.  This is  one of the most romantic ruins with its ancient harbour. By bus, it is a significant trip; by sea but a few miles.  The harbour has been used by sailors for thousands of years and today is overlooked by the ruins of the magnificent amphitheatre.
