This part of western Turkey has a long and indented coastline. Such indentation makes for intricate craftwork to represent on a 3d chart but the finished result speaks for itself. In the top right corner can be seen Marmaris. It is a port city and a tourist resort on the shore of the Turkish Riviera. The city lies between two intersecting sets of mountains by the sea. To the west are the Datca and Bozburun peninsulas of Mugla Province. The Datca Peninsula is narrow and long and its outline follows the undulations of small bays and coves. The peninsula’s eastern end is marked by the fjord-like indentation of Bencik Cove. At the end is a narrow isthmus where it joins the mainland and from here there is a view of the Gulf of Gokova in the north and the Gulf of Hisaronu in the south.
The island of Simi lies central on the chart and is part of the Dodecanese island chain. It is an island of small valleys, rocky cliffs and beachs, and isolated coves some of which can only be reached by a small boat. It is located 40km from Rhodes.
