The sea played with my hopes! ..
Dzhigit and in poverty and in grief
It's on a straight path."

Turkmen Gulf (Turkmen Ailagy) is located on the Turkmen coast in the eastern part of the Caspian Sea to the south of the Cheleken Peninsula and south of the South Cheleken Gulf, bounded from the west by the coastline of Ogurchinsky Island and the South Cheleken Spit, from the east bounded by the small bays of AKjaada and Uzynsu in the Balkan velayat .
From the south, the entrance to the bay is possible through the water area of ​​the Karadashly Bay at the southern tip of Ogurchinsky Island, the distance between which is 70 kilometers. The length of the bay is about 75 kilometers.
The northern part of the Turkmen Gulf is called the Southern Cheleken Gulf. The shores of the bay are low-lying and deserted, as is the coast to the south of it. The eastern coast is strongly indented, forming a series of small peninsulas and spits separating small bays.
In general, the Turkmen Gulf is shallow, the depth is less than 10 meters and decreases both towards the east coast and to the south, where banks and shoals are not uncommon. The bay does not have convenient parking for ships.
