SAILING
in Turkey means cruising along the many gulfs and bays of the much indented Turkish coastline. It is also a journey back in time, with a plethora of archaeological sites, castles and temples that reflect its importance in ancient and medieval times. Especially the south-west coast - roughly speaking the stretch of coastline from Izmir via Kusadasi, Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye and Kas to Antalya - is an ideal cruising ground.

 

This stretch of Turkish coastline is usually divided into four different yacht charter areas:

The Ionian Coast: Izmir - Kusadasi - Güllük - Bodrum, a coastline which claims the to have the best climate and which shores brought forth the rich culture of the Ionians and their great philosophers.
The Carian Coast: Bodrum - Marmaris, the most popular sailing ground which includes the two largest yacht charter bases in Turkey: Bodrum and Marmaris.
The west Lycian Coast: Marmaris - Fethiye, the pirate coast with its wild, mountainous shores and hundreds of hidden coves.
The east Lycian Coast: Fethiye - Kas - Finike - Antalya, rock tombs and solid stone sarcophagi.
