WHEN TO GO: MAY-OCTOBER
Ionian Coast: Izmur, Güllük

The Ionian Coast boasts year round perfect weather and a multitude of towns, each with a vibrant atmosphere. Izmur is the second largest port in Turkey after Istanbul. It has a colourful history and this is reflected in her very strong culture. Throughout the year there are events held here which are always great fun with a fantastic atmosphere.  Güllük is becoming a very popular place to visit due to its relaxed restaurant culture.

Carian Coast: Bodrum, Marmaris
The Carian Coast is a fabulous place to sail: great weather, great towns, beautiful scenery. There are two main locations to visit here: Bodrum and Marmaris. Bodrum has a great number of places to visit as it is a historically rich city. There are many museums and churches to see and the city itself is fantastic with a great selection of bars and restaurants. Marmaris is another beautiful location in Turkey with a great deal of things to do: you can take a mud bath, visit Turtle Beach, explore the castle or take a look down the boulevard which is full of shops, restaurants and bars.

The West Lycian Coast: Marmaris, Fethiye
The West Lycian Coast is an extraodinary place: there are many hidden coves to uncover as well as beautiful moutainous shores. Fethiye is a beautiful place to visit with one of the most divine beaches to be seen in Turkey, the Blue Lagoon. There are many breathtaking coves and underwater ruins to explore.

Day 1: Embarkation at Mamaris Harbour. Step on board your yacht where Captain and Crew will be ready to welcome you. Enjoy a welcome drink and make yourself at home, or set out to explore Mamaris, one of Turkey’s most beautiful towns.

Day 2:  Spend the late morning exploring Mamaris’ tranquil sanded coves by boat before setting sail for Ekincik. Anchor in the bay and head inland, venturing up the Dalyan river where Lycian tombs stand guard, carved into the surrounding cliffs. Discover the ancient city of Kaunos or relax in the mud baths and hot springs of the Dalyan.

Day 3:  The first stop today will be Cleopatra’s baths which were built in the 1st Century BC to honour a visit of the Egyptian Queen.  Now partially submerged, explore the baths by snorkelling or by tender.  After lunch at anchor, set sail for Göceck, a town nestled at the bottom of towering mountains.  If you are looking for a little tranquillity, dine on board and spend the night at anchor in the bay.  If not, dock in the Goceck Marina and enjoy the buzz of the beach front bars.

Day 4: Cruise the Gulf of Fethiye, taking in the Lycian tombs which hover over the bay. Embark on a gentle morning cruise to Oludeniz, one of the most beautiful beaches in the Mediterranean. Charter yachts are not allowed to enter the inner harbour, rendering it spectacularly peaceful. Take a tender ride, or an afternoon swim here.  Stay overnight in Fethiye’s luxurious marina.

Day 5: Set sail to Patara beach, Turkey’s longest beach, and one of its most stunning.  Quiet lagoons and ancient ruins are hidden behind the beach’s white sanded dunes. After a morning of relaxation or exploration, head back aboard and sail onward to Kalkan, a harbourside town that looks across a near-perfect bay. The old town boasts excellent restaurants if you wish to dine ashore.

Day 6:  A short sail to Kas, a hub for watersports activites and hiking tours.   This coast offers some of the best diving in the Mediterranean boasting coral reefs that are overflowing with marine life and also Ottoman Shipwreck and even bomber planes. Dock overnight in the new marina and explore the Roman and Turkish ruins that remain or head to a concert in the Greek amphitheatre just outside of town.

Day 7: Take a relaxing cruise to Kekova Island. Snorkel at the submerged ruins or a Byzantine church or take a local guided boat tour to the submerged Ancient City of Simena and float over the ruins of abandoned houses and Lycian tombs.  Anchor in the bay overnight before a disembarkation the following morning.
