Even though the summer is six months away, many of us are already exploring where to spend the next summer vacation once the warm weather arrives. And while there are literally hundreds of options for vacationing and having a good time during summer, have you ever considered visiting Turkey and enjoying the country’s splendid Turquoise coast?

Frankly, there’s no other place quite like Turkey. It’s the country where the East meets the West, where Asia and Europe collide and blend to form the country’s characteristic transcontinental cultural clash. The clash that brought forth a mix of cultures, histories, tastes, and foods is precisely what makes Turkey an unforgettable travel destination.

Turkey is the home to the Turkish Riviera, the country’s most apparent legacy, a region that has been left untouched, with islets and coves inaccessible to vehicles. Therefore, the best way to enjoy all that the Turquoise Coast has to offer is to chart a boat or, even better—a yacht—and enjoy the coast’s extravaganza by sea. Furthermore, besides the fact that yacht cruising provides you with the chance to see and experience the most in the shortest amount of time, yacht cruising also comes with many other benefits to it.

So, to help you get the most out of your next vacation in Turkey, here are some of the best things you can do while on a yacht with your family and friends and Turkey and enjoy an unforgettable trip.

Stay Active During Your Holiday And Enjoy The Water

First things first, while on a yacht trip in Turkey, we suggest you avoid your everyday routines and be as spontaneous as possible. So get out of bed, wash your teeth, and jump straight into the crystal clear sea first thing in the morning! The Turkish riviera’s early morning waves during sunrise are pure magic, and it would be a shame to miss this experience.


Besides taking the early morning swim, nature in Turkey is simply magnificent. It offers a broad range of activities you and your family can enjoy (biking, hiking, paragliding, rock climbing, etc.). However, besides these land activities you can participate in while visiting a coastal town, there are plenty of fun activities you can do and enjoy while on board as well.

Most yachts and gulets in Turkey come with various water sports toys on deck, such as jet skis, water skis, wakeboards, kayaks, paddleboards, banana rides, canoes, and so on. And with such a vast range of watersports available on your boat, it’s sure to say that you should get out of your comfort zone and try as many water sports as possible while on your next vacation.

Enjoy The Gorgeous Landscape And Sunset During Dinner

Sure, having a fancy dinner in an exclusive restaurant is always a nice thing to do. However, nothing can substitute the experience of having dinner on board while enjoying Turkey’s fantastic landscapes and sunsets.

Believe us; you’ll be amazed by the food your boat’s chef will prepare. Give out all your food requirements and preferences in advance to the yacht’s crew and enjoy mouthwatering food while admiring the abundant landscapes and enchanting sunsets on board away from civilization. Imagine the gastronomical experience in the most beautiful setting, where you and your family enjoy a freshly grilled lobster over a bottle of Prosecco. Ah, beautiful, that’s what Turkey is all about!

Have A Boat Party!

There’s no party quite like a yacht cocktail party! Whether you want to celebrate a special occasion with your dearest and nearest or if you’ve been pondering a gift for that special someone, even if there’s no reason to throw a party at all — do not set foot on the ground to get back home before throwing a yacht party before you leave.

Designed for entertaining and enjoyment, most yachts and gulets in Turkey offer endless decor possibilities and amenities when it comes to throwing a boat party. Talk to the crew and share your ideas about the party. Still, we suggest letting them surprise everyone on board with some of the most famous Turkish cocktails, including the famous Turkish Delight Martini, Hot Bunny, The Screwdriver, etc.

While having fun is guaranteed, before you start the party, we suggest you talk to go through your yacht’s guide and establish some ground rules for everyone on board so that everyone stays safe and sound while sipping some Yeni Raki-powered cocktails.

Final Thoughts

While this is by no means a comprehensive list to do while on a yacht in Turkey, the activities mentioned above are an absolute must for anyone who goes yachting on the marvellous Turkish Riviera. Don’t wait to make your wildest vacation dreams come true, and book a charter to live Turkey’s heavenly views without worries
