Bridging the East and West
Turkey, with its extensive coastline, provides and excellent sailing experience. Sailing the brilliantly blue waters off the coasts of Turkey allows sailors to do a great deal of exploring as well, with a combination of beautiful natural surroundings and ancient relics and ruins. You can charter a boat and take it out if you have sailing experience, or book yourself on board a yatch or gulet. The south west coast offers the best locations for a sailing in Turkey. The stretch of coastline from Izmir via Kusadasi, Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye and Kas to Antalya is an ideal cruising ground.
