Turkey

Flotilla | Bareboat | Skippered | Crewed
Turkey is a popular tourist destination renowned for its warm hospitality, Mediterranean coastline, impressive architecture, and diverse culture. It occupies a unique geographic position, partly in Asia and partly in Europe, and is a holidaymaker’s dream. Here you can discover towering cliffs and quaint hidden coves while visiting deserted bays and sandy beaches along the charming coastline. The picturesque turquoise waters invite you to stop for swimming or snorkelling. An extra benefit to the beauty of Turkey is that you can moor your yacht at a wooden jetty built by restaurants in the bay and take advantage of reliable winds for a late afternoon of sailing.

An unspoilt area, with pine-covered fjord-like anchorages with names such as Four Fathom Bay, Ruin Bay, Wall Bay and Tomb Bay.
