The cache box is a small one, with a brand new logbook (changed August 11, 2010). For the FTF, there is a nice TB.
It is a small island close to the shores of Kusadasi. There is a Byzantium castle built on sharp rocks. During the Ottoman reign, it was used as a sea patrol to prevent possible attacks from the islands and the Mora Rebellion. The castle is also known as "Pirate Castle" as it was used against pirates. The tower is at the highest place of the island, was used as the living and watching place of guards. There is also a cistern. The castle restored and the surroundings are arranged. Today there is a tea shop, a cafeteria, a restaurant, and a discotheque for tourist purposes. The castle is lighted , too.
