Throughout its history, Turkey has been a crossroads of religions, and as such is often described as an open air museum so if you are not sailing, there is plenty to do and see.

Add an exotic touch to your yacht charter holiday by visiting the lively bazaars in the multi-coloured little towns, escaping into a different world. Oriental spices, silver jewellery and traditional carpets are popular souvenirs which will remind you of your Turkey yacht charter when you return home again.

Climate

The Aegean and Mediterranean coasts have cool, rainy winters and hot, moderately dry summers. Generally, rainfall is less to the east. The Black Sea Coast receives the greatest amount of rainfall.  Mountains close to the coast prevent Mediterranean influences from extending inland, giving the interior of Turkey a continental climate with distinct seasons. The Anatolian Plateau is much more subject to extremes than are the coastal areas. May is generally the wettest month and July and August the driest.



TURKEY YACHT CHARTER

Turkish coastline are 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.

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.

Sailing season in Turkey starts in April and continues until November. The hottest months are July and August; rain is very unusual throughout the summer season.

During the peak of charter season, between April and October, the skies are blue and the waters are warm. In midsummer, charter guests enjoy glorious sunsets and long evenings, under gentle winds and still seas.

Turkey has more coastline than any other Mediterranean country – some 8400 kilometres. There are so many bays and coves, one can almost always pick a pretty anchorage within minutes of deciding to drop the anchor.

Small bays and coves along its shores are also rich with history and culture too, where yachtsmen can choose a different and private anchorage every night. Sailing in Turkey allows you to experience a truly enriching cultural exchange with the friendly and hospitable people of the coastal villages.

There are many modern and well-equipped marina facilities along the Turkish coast line where you can dock with your private or chartered yacht. 

The country has become one of the most important yachting destinations and is one of the most sought after yacht charter holiday areas in the Eastern Mediterranean. 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.  One of the most famous 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 paraglide. The Sunken City of Kekova is a protected Lycian-Roman archeological site also well worth a visit while on your yacht charter in Turkey.

Another interesting and historically significant location to add to your charter itinerary is the ruins of the ancient city Caunos from 3000 BC, easily accessible and well worth exploring. Shopping for souvenirs is best done in Fethiye, where you should also try the traditional Turkish Bath. Also,visit Marmaris, a 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.

You can also sail upon ancient ruins an archaeological sites including Greek cities, sunken Roman harbours and crusader castles. It’s no surprise that Turkey is such a wealth of culture, history and intrigue.

Reasons to visit


History

Turkey is littered with ruins from ancient civilisations. From the cities of Troy and Ephesus to the statues atop Mount Nemrut, as well as Cappadocia’s monasteries and cave churches…

Food

A flavourful blend of Middle Eastern, European, Asian and African influences, Turkey is a gastronomical paradise of mouth-watering dishes and delicacies.

Bazaars

Entering Istanbul’s Grand Bazaar is like stepping into shopping heaven. Brace yourself for sensory overload as you bask in the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of this bustling market…

Hospitality

Warm smiles will greet you as you stroll down the streets, accompanied by a medley of shopkeepers’ voices welcoming you into their stores…

East meets West

Turkey’s geographic location at the crossroads of Europe and Asia makes it a fascinating specimen of East-meets-West. The Bosphorous strait dividing the Eastern and Asian sides of Turkey quite literally straddles both continents, which are a mere ferry ride away from each other.

Turquoise Coast

Tucked in the south-western corner of Turkey is the Turquoise Coast, thousands of miles of shoreline stretching across major settlements such as Bodrum, Fethiye and Antalya. Bordering the Mediterranean Sea, the Coast offers azure waters and pristine sandy shores to make the ideal beach getaway.
