Chartering a yacht on the coast of Turkey
Lykiens on the south coast is akin to sailing through an ancient world with its long bays, even longer beaches and steep rocky shores. The numerous offshore islands are mostly uninhabited but offer wonderfully peaceful anchorages against beautiful backdrops. This history-rich area has many associations with Homer and you will find several rock tombs and stone sarcophagi.
Behind Ölüdeniz to the south, the mountains are green from the thick forest, whereas south on Yediburunlar, it is far more rugged, dark and gritty. Next along the coast is the bottle mouth of the river Esençay, home to the ancient Xanthos.

As far as Inceburun, the coast has snow white beaches that are reminiscent of a desert landscape, with the azure blue Mediterranean in front and the Taurus mountains behind. Behind Inceburun are the ruins of the ancient city of Patara, where we recommend you take some time to visit the ancient site of Patara and Xanthos.
Off the coast of Kalkan to Kas, there are a number of high mountains, islands and islets. Only 3 NM away directly opposite Kas is the last Greek outpost, Kastellorizon, the most south-eastern island of Greece. This is a popular port of call for sailors. To cross between borders is not a problem for both countries. Once on the other side in Kas, you’ll come to the ancient world of Antiphellos which has always been a popular holiday destination. Also highly recommended is a stop at Kekova, which offers a spectacular panoramic view.
After that travel north east, where the coast of Kemer becomes even more beautiful with diverse islands, steep cliffs, impressive mountains, powdery white sand strands and dense pine forests.
Finally you come to Antalya with its palm-lined boulevards, internationally renowned marina and beautiful old town of Kaleici. The capital of the province offers something for everyone: from historical areas and harbor walks, to lively bars and pubs.
To the east is the famous Turkish Riviera with the white beaches of Cilicia. Although very scenic, they unfortunately offer little protection for anchorage.
