Greek Islands And Turkish Boat Holidays What A Great Combo
The Aegean coast of Turkey is lined with many of the most popular destination hot spots – combined with an array of ancient cities from past civilizations such as Knidos in the Datca Peninsula, Caunos in the town of Dalyan, and more. Alternatively, when you visit the neighboring Greek Islands, you come across more history also filled with ancient cities and architecture like the famous acropolis of Lindos in the Dodecanese island of Rhodes.
There are practically an endless combination of routes to plan an exciting itinerary for your blue cruise holiday from Turkey. It can be more cost effective to begin your gulet boat holiday from anyone of the major harbors along the Carian coast and then steer to the Dodecanese and / or Cyclades to visit islands such as Rhodes, Symi and Kos. There are many other islands in between these fantastic routes. It’s just a matter of where you wish to visit and explore. Each one offers its own unique features – where nightlife is in abundance in Rhodes, while the island of Kos is a bit more peaceful.
The most popular places to embark from in Turkey to Greece are either Bodrum or Marmaris. The Milas airport is only a 40 minute drive, while the Dalaman airport is approximately 90 minutes from Marmaris harbor. Both harbors offer a variety of itineraries to the lovely islands of Greece. You do have to pay for Greek harbor fees if you are traveling that way.
Just about all Turkish gulet charters and motor yacht rentals will cruise out of Turkish waters to the Greek Islands. It might be an idea to roughly plan your itinerary first and then find out which boat charters in Turkey are available to travel to Greece. This is where your yacht charter agent can assist in helping you organize your boat holiday from Turkey to suit your style and requirements.
