Geyikli is a village on an elevated plateau slightly inland in the Troad Peninsula of Southern Marmara, south of the regional hub of Çanakkale. Southwest of Geyikli proper is the coastal suburb of Odunluk İskelesi, a small collection of low-lying housing developments (used by Turkish families from elsewhere in the country during summers) and a few old stone-built warehouses that were witnesses of the times gone-by when this was the main port of the area. Further south from Odunluk İskelesi is the small fishing village of Dalyan.
While these communities fronting the sea are as good as any others for a swim on this stretch of the northern Aegean coastline, the main reason for a visit here would be taking a ferry across to the island of Bozcaada (Tenedos) from Geyikli's modern harbour, or visiting the ruins of Alexandria Troas, which lie scattered along the road east of Dalyan.
