Rod Heikell in his "Turkish Waters and Cyprus
Pilot" 6th ed. pg. 129 says
"There are several places where a yacht can anchor:
1: on the W side, in a bight just past some low cliffs. Reasonable shelter from the meltemi. There are windsurfers everywhere and you may decide that right under the hotel
is not for you.
2: In the bay on the E side, off Kocak. Poor shelter from the meltemi.
3: Near the head
of Agriler Korfezi. Care must be taken of shoal water off the western side and at the head
of the bay. The bottom is mud and good holding."
I'd invest in the book if I did not have it:-) There's a lot of good info there, and it's great to have a good read around before you go gunkholing.
