Salih Ada (anciently, Taramptos (Ancient Greek: Ταράμπτος)[1] and Caryanda[2]) is a Turkish island in the Aegean Sea, located north of Bodrum. Salih Ada is a popular tourist destination, and is accessible by boat from Bodrum. The original location of the town of Caryanda was on this island before its relocation to the mainland.[3][4] Under the name Taramptos, it was a member of the Delian League and is mentioned in a tribute decree of ancient Athens dated to 425/4 BCE. It is also mentioned in an inscription recovered at Halicarnassus dated to 300 BCE.[5]
