Products such as citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwi, laurel are the most produced products. For a long time, Marmaris Boncuk Bay has been known as a bay visited by sandbar sharks. Since 2001, experts have started to visit the bay on behalf of ICRAM (Italy’s Central Marine Research Institute). According to the results of the studies of these experts, it is understood that sandbar sharks use the Boncuk Bay as a breeding ground. These fish, which are not aggressive towards humans, are much more shy and timidly, especially during breeding periods. Due to the serenity and tranquillity it offers, Boncuk Bay has recently hosted yoga and meditation camps.
