The famous Turkish coast boasts interminable blue seas lapping at luminous beaches, hugging temperate rainforests and rising mountains. The extraordinary ecosystem of this beautiful West Asian country entices yachting enthusiasts and traditional travelers from all over the world. They arrive in droves to experience the eclectic mix of exotic and conventional sights, smells and flavors. Sailing is the ideal way to discover the Turkish shores. Some of the most exquisite must-see destinations are Datça, Dalyan, Marmaris and Bozburun.
A fusion of natural beauty and contemporary convenience, this south-west Turkish district is home to the Bencik Cove, a 1.5 km fjord-like indentation used as a port for smaller boats.
The Dalyan Çayi River leads to the quaint town of Dalyan. Although it is not possible for yachts to sail up the river, smaller boats are available to ferry travellers up and down. This is where visitors can experience the thermal springs of Sultaniye, a host of ancient ruins and other landmarks.
Nestled between two majestic sets of mountains, Marmaris boasts one of the largest marinas in Turkey and is also where the annual Marmaris International Race Week takes place – every yachting enthusiast’s idea of paradise. Clubs and bars dot the streets offering endless entertainment options every evening, while historic sites and water-based activities provide ample daytime enjoyment.
Away from the hustle and bustle of Marmaris, Borzburun is a tranquil district known for its scenic bays and picturesque beaches. This is where sailing folk can anchor down and really relax.
