Ah, Turkey, Turkey. The ancient Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, and, more recently, the Ottomans have alllll made their mark on this diverse country’s drop-dead-gorgeous coastline. Fact: Turkey has more Roman ruins to brag about than Italy. Got your attention yet?
Picture this: coves and harbours, secret, tucked-away beaches, the ruins of ancient churches, the bluest of blue waters, notoriously friendly locals… Yep. It's easy to see why the heart-stealing Turkish coast tops all those must-travel lists time and time again.
But how best to see Turkey’s legendary coastline? Um – by boat, obvs. Lucky for you, we offer two amazing Turkey Sailing itineraries: Turkish Summer Sailing and Bodrum Sailing. Whichever you choose, you can expect the following: sun, sand, swimming – and spine-tingling memories to last until you’re old and grey.
Sail Turkey: Things to Do
Take a day trip to the Dalyan DeltaOn the 'Bodrum Sailing'
On our Bodrum Sailing trip you’ll get the chance to visit the breathtaking Dalyan Delta – a nature conservation area that’s home to heaps of wildlife (INCLUDING sea turtles). Frolic in the mud bath and sulphur springs, then weave your way through the maze-like channels by boat. You’re not gonna want to miss this one.
Swim in the Blue Lagoon in OludenizOn the 'Turkish Summer Sailing'
This is blue like you’ve NEVER seen it before. So what are you waiting for? Dive in! The Blue Lagoon’s sandy beaches are pretty much ideal for whiling away a chill afternoon – but if you’re up for it, there are also heaps of non-horizontal activities to get involved with, too. Anyone for sunset yoga? How about paragliding?
Go scuba diving in KasOn the 'Turkish Summer Sailing'
Scuba diving in one of the most famous dive spots in Turkey? Don’t mind if we do. Plunge underwater and you’ll soon discover all kinds of wrecks, reefs and rocky caves – PLUS loads of amazingly colourful fish and turtles (and the occasional curious lil’ monk seal). All together now: ‘Under the seeeeeeeaaaaa…’.
