Turkey

Turkey is a spectacular luxury yacht charter destination, with more coastline than any other country in the Mediterranean, where even those with the highest expectations will not be disappointed. The country has become one of the most important yachting destinations and is one of the most sought after luxury yacht charter holiday areas in the eastern Med. A well planned Turkey yacht charter vacation is sure to allow you to get away from it all and get immersed in this beautiful natural environment the Mediterranean has to offer.

By far the most dramatic way to explore this stretch of coastline is by sailing through the pristine turquoise water aboard a traditional Turkish charter gulet. One of the most photographed beaches in the Med is Oludeniz or Blue Lagoon, known for its calm, crystal-clear waters, ideal for swimming, water-sports and among the best places in the world to para-glide. The Sunken City of Kekova is a protected Lycian-Roman archaeological site also well worth a visit while on your yacht charter in Turkey.

Another interesting and historically important location to add to your charter itinerary is the ruins of the ancient city Caunos from 3000BC, easily accessible and well worth exploring. Shopping for souvenirs is best done in Fethiye, where you should also try the traditional Turkish Bath, followed by an hour long massage before returning aboard your luxury yacht. For a little more action, visit Marmaris, a busy town bustling with activity, shops, markets and nightlife; or Bodrum, with many good bars, restaurants and some of the best open-air nightclubs in the Eastern Mediterranean.
