Escape Beach to Alagadi Turtle Beach (12nm)

From Escape Beach, head east for a two-hour sail to the large sandy Alagadi Turtle Beach, which is one of the major beaches in North Cyprus where the loggerhead and green turtles come to nest. Under the control and guidance of the volunteers working for the Society for the Protection of Turtles in North Cyprus, it is possible to see the turtles laying eggs and then from August onwards the hatchlings make their journey to the sea.

It is the longest stretch of beach on the coast, with views of the Five Finger mountains behind and impressive sand dunes between the road and the sea.

Yachts can anchor at the entrance of the bay in the sandy bottom. Protected from southerly winds, it is possible to stay overnight if the weather is good.
