Sailing in Turkey - Introduction

Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is a fitting name to describe a yacht charter through this Mediterranean paradise. The sails between islands are short, providing plenty of time to soak up the wonders of Turkey, explore ashore and sample the local cuisine. A Gocek yacht charter is distinct in history and character - ancient ruins and tombs can be explored amidst picturesque bays. Around the islands are some of the best cruising grounds in the entire Med, with sandy idyllic beaches, secure anchorages and picturesque harbours home to family-run restaurants.


Your visit to Turkey wouldn’t be complete without experiencing the lively market bazaars. Stalls spill onto the narrow streets of Fethiye; where merchants display an array of handicrafts, carpets, pottery, jewellery, incense and foodstuffs. The restaurants and bars come alive each night, where you can dine on freshly caught seafood. Wander the streets towards the main square where the sounds of Middle Eastern music is ever present and the air is fragranced with the scent of the pine studded shores.

Close to the idyllic anchorage of Ekincik is the Dalyan River, an ancient Lycian trading port. Here you find a grand city built on the hilltop which dates back to 400 B.C., one of the most well-known archaeological sites in Turkey. Much of the city is still intact to explore - a theatre, temples, baths, and many other ruins. The area is also well-known for its hot springs and Turkish mud baths and if you’re lucky you can spot a giant loggerhead turtle on one of the area’s beaches!


The crystal clear waters of the Lycian Coast is home to a beautiful world of colourful marine plants and countless species of fish. Craggy rock formations, winding tunnels and caves makes for some fantastic snorkel and dive spots. Visit Afkule, a small cave which leads deeper still to a huge cavern with colourful walls and schools of tropical fish. Scuba diving can be arranged at the nearby town of Fethiye.
