The Mycale Strait.

The Mycale Strait (Greek: Στενό της Μυκάλης) (Turkish: Dilek Geçidi) is a narrow strait separating the island of Samos from Anatolia (Turkey). At its narrowest point it is only 1.6 km wide, the narrowest between any Aegean island and Turkey. It is named after the nearby Mount Mycale on the Turkish mainland. The Dilek Peninsula-Büyük Menderes Delta National Park, located in the Kuşadası district of Aydın Province, is situated along the strait.
