Site description Two small islands near Aydýncýk on the Mediterranean coast. The larger is up to 30 m high and has steep barren cliffs on the eastern and western sides, whilst the northern and southern sides are gently sloping and vegetated. The smaller island is up to 5 m high and is fully vegetated.
Key Biodiversity In 1996 only 6 pairs of Larus audouinii bred on the small island, possibly as a result of increasing numbers of breeding Larus cachinnans.
