You are here: Home Sea life
The water along the coast of the Özdere is called the Aegean sea. And by hearing the word sea, many people think of large waves along the coast. But you will not see that picture quickly. This has to do with the fact that Özdere is positioned in a large bay, surrounded by land. The beach at Özdere runs far into the sea, so you can walk into the sea for about 50-100 meters without getting the head under water. The waves are generally small, so even small children can play easily in the water and walk about 10 meters into the sea without getting their head under water. The size of Waves in general depend on the wind force and the wind direction. In Özdere during the day there is often just a little bit of wind which is favorable to the quiet sea.
The water is very clear, so you can see easily the bottom of the sea. The average sea temperature in the table below.

Annually, the beaches in the Europe, Turkey and many other countries are being reviewed by an independent institute. The beaches and harbors which are clean and safe receive an internationally recognized environmental award in the form of a blue flag. For Özdere and the surrounding villages, the blue flag has been awarded for the past years and again for 2013. Click here for detailed information about the Blue Flag in Özdere. Other information about the blue flag and beaches can be found here. This blue flag assures you of a safe beach with safe swimming.
