Chartering a yacht in Turkey:  Where the Mediterranean meets the Orient.

Turkey – where East meets West – is a magical country full of character and contrasts. Those looking for non-stop parties, however, are in the wrong place. Sailing the clear blue waters around the Turkish coast is about recharging your batteries and connecting to the sublime nature, peace and tranquility on offer. Hire a yacht in Turkey and you’ll experience the wonderful Mediterranean climate, pristine sandy beaches, sleepy fishing villages, beautiful bays and ancient historical cities.

Summer temperatures can climb very high, but are often mitigated by the cooling Meltemi breeze. For those not into the heat, spring and autumn are probably the most pleasant times to visit. Spring – when the coast is blooming in all its glory – offers an abundance of beautiful colours and is perfect for excursions onto the shore. Meanwhile in autumn the water is still pleasant enough for swimming but the mid-summer heat is over, paving the way for relaxing trips to the oriental bazaars, ancient sites and the many picturesque villages, without fighting through crowds of tourists.

The entire Turkish coastline is resplendent with romantic bays, white beaches, fragrant pine woods and turquoise waters. Between Çesme and Antalya, you’ll find a huge selection of exquisite beaches. During the day you can sail from bay to bay, taking a plunge whenever you fancy, then in the evening sample the mouthwatering delights on offer at the local taverns and sip on a glass of Raki or enjoy a spot of wine tasting. If you fancy something further afield, the island of Cyprus is only two or three days away and definitely well worth a visit.

The mild Mediterranean climate – combined with long, clean beaches, lively resorts and historical sites – is what lures sailors to Turkey. The country’s yacht chartering territory extends along the Gulf of Antalya Kemer to Alanya. Along the coast you’ll find a variety of holiday resorts – often grouped around historical cities like Side or Antalya – but there are also wonderfully verdant areas steeped in nature, such as Belek. Turkey is full of character – it’s where the West meets the East – and the warm hospitality of its people make it a perfect holiday destination.
