Turkey nautical guide

Sailing in Turkey

Sunny skies, warm turquoise waters, cooling breezes, deserted anchorages and tranquil bays are what you'll find as you sail the southern coast of Turkey. Combined with the warmth and sincerity of the people, spectacular scenery, fascinating ruins from previous civilisations and delicious food - who could ask for more!

Turkey occupies a geological and cultural bridge, between Europe and Asia, where East meets the West. You will be truly surprised by the warm welcome and friendship shown by the local people.

Wherever sailing in Turkey, particularly along the Southern coast, you will always find exciting places to explore. The Turkish coast is ideal for cruising and it stretches from the Peninsula of Callipolis down to Antalya. Due to the formation of the coast line, with a large number of bays, peninsulas and inlets, it is decieiving in its length - almost 1,000 miles long.

Starting from Marmaris, Gocek, Fethiye or Bodrum, you will discover and enjoy the charm of beautiful bays, quiet coves and sheltered anchorages. Along the coast, there are literally acres of ancient ruins from the proto-Greek period to the Byzantine period. Do not miss historical tours ashore, visiting Caunus, Ephesus, Pergamos, Kas.

The ancient ruins of Asia are amongst the most picturesque in the Mediterranean. In addition, Turkish food is reputedly one of the great cuisines of the world. Restaurants offer amazing selections of delicious starters, known as mezes. Main dishes include freshly caught seafood, shish kebabs, köfte (spicy meatballs) as well as vegetarian dishes.

Shopping is an interesting and enjoyable experience, especially in the bazaars and markets. The variety of crafts, ranging from carpets, jewellery, leather goods to ceramics is immense and prices are reasonable.

You may be invited to drink tea as you discuss purchases. If prices are not displayed, feel free to bargain! Although in recent years Turkey has become a very popular tourist destination, development has been confined to larger, purpose built resorts. The majority of the country remains unspoilt.
