Özbek Shelter is of the eastern side of Gülbahçe Bay. A sandbank extends NW 400 meters off the main breakwater. When approaching from the north alter your course southward, observe sheltering breakwater from 90 degrees and turn in for the shelter. A finger jetty is in the middle in the basin. Both sides are adequate for berthing. There are 1.5 – 5 meters depth in the inlet. Boats drop anchor and go stern – or bow. Water and electricity are available for a fee. Berthing capacity is 50 boats. The shelter is managed by fishing cooperative (phone: 0232 – 573 01 11). Fuel is obtained from a tanker truck. Fishmongers are around the shelter and fish auction is arranged. Restaurants offer good food with reasonable rates. Regular transport facilities are available to the Özbek Village – 2 km and Urla – 10 km. Most provisions can be found in the village. Public market takes place on Fridays and Sundays.
