Hisaronu and Gokova , and opposite, Tavsan or Rabbit Island and cove of the same name where the Robinson Club Maris is located and is the most beautiful port in this region.Bencik is next on this coast and a favourite of the Blue Cruise boats and yachts for its special small coves and there is a government run camping site on the shoreline that is very peaceful and quiet. From here there are walking paths that lead to the shores of Gokova and is best to stroll either in the early morning or later in the evening especially to watch the fantastic colours of a spectacular sunset.
Dislice IslandAt the mouth of Bencik is Dislice (Teeth) Island, so called because the rocks that cover it stick out like teeth, and is a frequent stop for the daily boat tours.
