1. Были в Экинчике в конце ноября 2015 и на майские праздники 2016. Бетонная стенка слева за молом была полностью занята местными лодками кооператива и рыбачками, то есть встать можно было только на якоре. зато поставили колонки с водой и электричеством, выложили площадку и дорогу в сторону отеля брусчаткой, поставили лавочки, возможно эта бетонная стенка скоро станет удобной гостевой маринкой:). От Май марины до Экинчика есть дорога через лесок, примерно 2 км., при желании можно прогуляться

2. В Май марине бывает не очень комфортно стоять при нагонной волне с юга-юго-запада. В этом году на майские за стоянку лодки 38 футов отдали 40 лир, это без электричества и воды.

3. Экскурсии на Дальян двух видов: короткая - 4 часа (гроты, черепаший пляж, древний Каунос, г. Дальян-место на речке, где фоткаются на фоне гробниц в скале) и длинная - 6 часов ( то же, только едут по речке дальше, где можно искупаться в грязях и горячем минеральном источнике). короткая стоит 120 евро за лодку, длинная - не помню. В Кауносе не поленитесь, заберитесь на самый верх, где крепость, тропа туда идет за амфитеатром. Вид оттуда-изумительный, панорамный на всю местность вокруг.
