Dardanelles, Santa Cruz Island
Dardanelles, Santa Cruz Island, a place name used by Horace Sexton in his account of a two-week camping trip to Santa Cruz Island in 1922. According to his map, Dardanelles is located directly to the east of Fry’s Harbor:
- “After leaving Fry’s we stopped in all the coves. The first stop was at Dardanelles, where we passed through the cliffs onto a little beach where the swells ebb and flow through a little straight made by a long rock beside the cliff; hence the name, Dardanelles.”
