Enjoy a Sailing Holiday in Turkey: A Crossroad of Civilisations
The much-indented western coastline of Turkey can offer an unprecedented pleasure to sailing and cruising fans. Seductive and mystifying, Turkey reflects the allure of the East. From exotic bazaars to pristine beaches and from ancient ruins to modern marinas, the Turkish coast will entice you with its manifold character. The passage of Persians, Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, Arabs and Ottoman Turks from this corner of the world has created its sensuous aura.
The mild climate, the short distances and the crystal blue waters makes the Turkish Riviera, also known as the Turquoise Coast, a paradise for people who enjoy discovering a place by sea. With a number of archaeological sites a short drive away from the coast, a cruise along the Turkish coast allows you to immerse in a journey back in time.
The scenery here is magnificent, yet calm and serene: sandy beaches fringed by pine forests, orange orchards, olive groves. The air is so fragrant, full of mesmerising smells. You will relax under the sun and you will swim in azure waters in hidden away coves. Snorkeling here is an amazing experience that you will never forget. If you are lucky and the currents favour you, you may spot dolphins welcoming you to this beautiful land. You will enjoy the hospitality of the locals and you will be blown away by the local, fabulous food. The flavours, the tastes, the lightness of the dishes will whet your appetite.
A cruise along the Turkish coast has all the ingredients for an unforgettable vacation. Depending on your time and preferences, you can plan your route and decide on the kind of holiday you wish to enjoy. Sailing a sailboat or a catamaran or cruising on a luxury cruiser will offer you the opportunity to discover this exciting land where the east meets the west!
