Why are Sailing Vacations Popular in the Eastern Mediterranean?
If you’re looking for ways to spend that quality time with family and friends, sailing vacations in the Eastern Mediterranean offer plenty of reasons why to choose it over hotel accommodation. The freedom of destination choices rule over stationary accommodation. When you are sailing, your accommodation goes to where you want to be. Rather than taking a car or bus to see sights, they are available to you from shores of where you are moored.
The Turkish Mediterranean is bountiful in archaeological sites and ancient cities. Should you want to explore a bit of the inlands’ places of interest, a few rental bikes on board (possibly folding ones); would offer not only a bit of exercise during your sailing trip, but also the eco-friendly local transportation that is sufficient for touring the immediate areas.
Harbors conveniently located near the Dalaman airport also offer convenience; namely Fethiye and Gocek; and Bodrum from Milas airport.
Another reason to engage in a trip of exploration with a sailing charter holiday – are islands. Absolutely! Why hop from one island to the next by ferry (+ ferry waiting times), when you again have the freedom to choose your islands and keep hopping! While there are beautiful islands in Turkey such as Yassica and Gocek islands; choose from dozens of islands in the Dodecanese such as Symi, Rhodes, Kos, Leros, Chalki, and more for island hopping adventure.
Between both Turkey and Greece, sailing with your family and friends is a journey of holiday freedom – rich in culture, history, cuisine and a great deal of fun!
