Today’s diving site is the Island of Besmi which is a kind of rocky place on the sea. Besmi Island is the nearest place to Greece and its distance from Kaş, Marina is a half-hour. It is possible to dive from different ways in this site according to weather conditions. I experienced both routes with my repeated divings. In my first diving with leader Çağdaş, we seek for turtles without stopping. We followed the route with a large circle. We surfaced a horizontal advanced way in near of the boat. After we decided to another route with our leader İrem. However we underwent ears problem and were carried away from the boat. Anyway, we could use our weather usefully. When we surfaced, we saw a turtle at that right moment. It was exciting.
End of the day, we could finally an opportunity to go hiking. We climbed the “Uyuyan Dev”. When you carefully looking from the beach, it can be seen that a recumbent man figure is on the rocks. Rumour has it that there is a female version of this figure in Meis Island, Greece. When the rising of water level happened, giants wake up and find each other.
