Tersane Island Fethiye
HistoryThe ancient name of the island is Telandria and was renamed Tersane (dockyard) when the Ottoman fleet used it as a port during the First World War and the original dockyard rocks can still be seen lying in the sea. The island was once inhabited by Greeks who migrated to Rhodes after the Greek/Turk population exchange of 1922 and the ruins of their 140 houses can be seen along with their fruit orchards, their descendent goat herds, two churches and the tomb of their ancient chief.
Dining in Tersane IslandSummer Port on the northern side of the island has a good restaurant popular with yacht visitors and is also a great place to take a swim.
Nearby Islands for MooringIn between the islands of Tersane and Gocek there is a group of small and large islands known as Yassica Island or Adalar, the largest of which is to the south side, is long and narrow, covered with olive trees and known as Buyuk (Big) Yassica. The area between here and Red (Kizil) Island which is a little further on is the best for mooring.
These islands are perfect for swimming and because of this can become very crowded at times. The best time to be here is when the sun is setting and especially if there is a full moon. The largest island near to Gocek is actually Gocek Island which offers shelter whatever the weather conditions may be and has large coves and many fig trees.
