Sailing enthusiasts can sail from there to the Greek islands. Due to the Mediterranean climate, a sailing trip will be an unforgettable holiday, especially between April and the end of October.
Discover the Aegean with a yacht charter from Turkey
Among sailors, Turkey is a popular destination for a yacht charter. The diverse Turkish coastline with its countless bays, islands and ancient ruins is a paradise for sailors. It was the scene of historical places and events, such as the biblical Ephesus, and has monuments from the time of the Roman and Turkish empires. In general, Turkey's sailing estuary is known as one of the most beautiful in the world. There you will find beautiful sandy beaches, lonely bays, striking rocks or green landscapes depending on the area. The hospitality and warmth of the locals also leave a lasting impression on many sailors. During an extended sailing trip from Turkey, you can travel the Lycian coast but also the Greek islands. From our two bases in Göcek, sailors can ideally explore the Gulf of Fethiye. The coastline in the Gulf of Fethiye is varied and offers green overgrown mainland shores. There are also many moorings for families with children with sandy and gently sloping beaches. The Tumb Bay (Bedri Rahmi Koyu), Kapi Bay (Göbün Koyu) and Wall Bay (Manastir Koyu) should be included in your itinerary for a charter in Turkey.
Yacht charter Turkey: best sailing conditions
Sailing in Turkey is possible from April to October, the hottest days are in July and August. The Meltemi usually brings cooling relief and breezes that fill the sails. Pleasant sailing conditions also prevail in spring or autumn. Due to the Mediterranean climate and the many hours of sunshine in summer, the sea water is still suitable for swimming in October.
As a change from staying on a sailing yacht, Turkish bazaars or ancient sites can be visited on land.
