If you are an sailing enthusiast and looking for a fulfilling gulet sailing holiday in the Aegean, then set course to the colorful city of Marmaris. This is where you will embark on an amazing blue cruise journey into the Gulf of Hisaronu.

The village of Hisaronu is a mere 30 minute drive from the city of Marmaris. However, by sea it can take up to 6 hours without any anchorage along the way.

For the purpose of enjoying a lovely gulet cruising experience, with stops at Cennet Island, the quaint holiday resort of Turunc and nearby bays, Serce Port, the town of Bozburun, Selimiye village and possibly the charming village of Turgut, you will reach the bay of Hisaronu.  It is a peaceful setting. There is no mass tourism activity and just the right place for a peaceful holiday.

One of the Best Winds for Gulet Sailing in the Aegean of Turkey

If you are keen on a private sailing holiday in Turkey, there are gulets – not all – which do provide a real sailing experience. This isn’t really restricted to the quality of the gulet but rather whether the rigging as well as the crew are capable of sailing. While some travelers are under the impression that gulets do not really sail (due to experiences they have previously had); some gulets do have this capability.

There are even ones (in the dozens) that participate in the Bodrum Annual “gulet” regatta (Bodrum Cup); and Turkish gulet captains who love to sail too.

As the windsurfing capital of the area, Hisaronu draws windsurfers for competitions and for pleasure all throughout the year.

The winds generally are most ideal during mid day – noon when you can expect at least a ninety percent chance of good winds in the gulf, making it very ideal for sailing as well as windsurfing.

The village is quiet. There is not much to offer for travelers except for a few traditional Turkish fish restaurants. However it does make for an authentic non-commercialized experience – since the restaurants are clean but don’t present any high end decor. But who’s looking for fine dining when there is so much more you can do in the area.

On the return to the harbor of Marmaris, during your one week gulet cruise vacation, other places of interest to stop could include Kadirga bay – where swimming is the number one thing to do. Then there is a lovely visit, possibly for a nice lunch and relaxation.
