3 Great Things to Do on a Gulet Charter Holiday In Orhaniye Village

Nestled in the picturesque Gulf of Hisaronu, in the Aegean sea region of Turkey is a small village with an array of things to offer visitors arriving by land or by sea. Orhaniye, although home to the largest marina in the region, is a very small, don’t-blink-or-you-might-miss-it sized village, yet packed with something for all ages. While here, there are 3 wonderful things you can do in order to enjoy being in this beautiful part of Turkey.

Firstly, Orhaniye is famed in tourism for the Kizkumu beach (Maiden’s beach). It is a narrow sand spit that stretches 600 meters long. Legend has it that a beautiful princess, daughter of King Bybassos, had jumped into the sea in order to escape from pirates. Not knowing how to swim, she had filled her skirt with sand so that she could spread it to cross the cove. Losing her way, and running out of sand, drowned. The sand seen today is apparently what is left of her story. As you walk on the sand, the water can go knee deep. From the shore, it looks as though people are actually walking on water.

The second thing very popular to do is hire water sports toys from the providers in the bay. From jet skis, peddle boats, water skiing to other air filled tuggable toys, there is a great deal of fun to be had while there.

Lastly, soak in stunning scenery, sun, and also the peace and quiet – away from the water sports activities.  There are many private coves to drop anchor in Orhaniye. The waters are clean and clear and delightfully refreshing during the hot summer months. I suppose with the last things to do can count for one! 🙂

So why not visit Orhaniye in your private blue cruise travels from Turkey.
