Paradise on Earth – The Turkish Coast

The Turkish coast and the friendliness of the local people will really impress you. At many anchorages you will find old cities, theatres and ruins, but also idyllic swimming bays where the sea appears turquoise blue and spring water meets with the sea. Romantic fishing villages will make you forget the hectic routine of your normal daily life. This area is a paradise: wooded coves cut deeply into the mainland and, since the Carian and Lycian coasts have hardly any heavy industry, the sea is clean and free from pollution. The natural environment remains untouched and full of diversity, especially Hisarönü and Yeşilova Gulfs, and the coves of the Fethiye Gulf. This knowledge gives sailing, swimming and enjoying the surroundings more value, and makes your sailing holiday a truly magical experience.

A breath of the Orient lies over the villages and small ports. Shoe shiners with gleaming brass boxes offer their services, whilst young boys sell simit (sesame coated bread rings) and glasses of tea from a tray at the roadside and in the bazaars. Men play backgammon in front of their shops, and sun-tanned farmers’ wives in bloomers and colourful blouses trade freshly picked fruit and vegetables. The markets are an experience not to be missed. A great change after a day of sailing.
Sailors will find clean and well-equipped marinas with supermarkets close by. Lokanta are to be found in many bays in which one can eat simple, local dishes. Sadun Boro, the Turkish round-the-world sailor, calls his homeland coast the most beautiful sailing area in the world.

By sailing in this area you’re assured of all the ingredients you may expect of a sailing holiday in Turkey. Sailing, sun, swimming, good food and drink, culture: enjoying all this with your yacht or catamaran as your base.
Additionally, whether sailing bareboat, or taking part in a flotilla, you can be sure you will meet interesting new people it's hard to avoid whilst sailing along the Turkish coast from our homeport of Fethiye!

Due to many positive reactions we know that we have chosen the right locations for our homeports and the start of your sailing holiday.

‘Welcome in Turkish is ‘Hoş geldiniz’. We hope we’ll be saying this to you soon!


The Gulf of Fethiye is a paradise with so many sheltered anchorages, bays and islands. The crystal clear water and protected coves give a tranquil night on anchor.
