Between the Mediterranean and Aegean sea regions of Turkey, there is also the Aegean Greek region that travelers can explore on a luxury yacht charter Turkey vacation. These splendid holidays begin from the middle of April and go on until the end of October; or in some instances until mid November.
There are many choices in itineraries for Turkish blue cruises that travelers have to choose from. Custom itineraries besides the well established ones can also be designed to suit the requirements of holidaymakers.
In the Mediterranean sea region, Turkish charter yachts embark from either Gocek or Fethiye. From these points routes run further to the Eastern Mediterranean to the Antalya province region. Along the way, feature anchorage points are Kekova, the ancient city of Simena where you can go swimming among the ruins of the sunken city and after a very short hike, stand within the castle ruins in Kalekoy. The views are simply breathtaking. Also in this region other places of interest include the world famous Oludeniz. It is also known as the Blue Lagoon and considered one of the most photographed beaches in Europe. When translated, Oludeniz means ‘dead sea’. This is due to the calmness of the waters even during storms.
Another attraction in this particular region is paragliding. Each year visitors go paragliding off Mt. Babadag from 1900 meter elevation. Again the views are quite impressive. For the novice paragliders, pilots can be provided as well for this adventure sport.
Another place that is considered a must-see is the ancient Caunos King Rock Tombs in the town of Dalyan and the nearby mud baths and the therapeutic natural springs – which is visited usually after a fun time in the mud baths.
When travelers decide that it’s the Aegean side of Turkey they wish to see, again there is an abundance of places to visit. Here in this region you will find a great deal of charming fishing villages, calm boat traffic – basically a less active area at sea. The bulk of boat traffic remains in the Gocek region.
If you are looking for a bit of hiking or biking adventure to combine with your luxury yacht charter Turkey holiday, then certainly the Aegean is an ideal place to go gulet cruising.
The two main places to begin your yacht charter holiday are either Marmaris or Bodrum. Both cities are lively and offer plenty to see and do in the immediate region, including the harbors.
Places of interest include Europe’s largest open-air night club the Halicarnassus in Bodrum; the one and only large Musical Fountain Square in Marmaris, the inviting nature of the villages; and the St. Peter’s castle – the landmark of Bodrum.
With all these and other wonderful and exciting places, why not explore a luxury yacht charter vacation and enjoy a lifetime experience in the Mediterranean and Aegean of Turkey and the Greek Islands at great prices.
