Sailing Holidays in Turkey
Discover towering cliffs and secret coves, deserted bays and sandy beaches on a sailing holiday in Turkey.
A sailing holiday is the only way to discover the beautiful coastline of Turkey. The scenery is breathtaking and the hospitality and warmth of the Turkish people will impress you. Keen sailors will enjoy the reliable winds and choice of sailing itineraries, but families and less experienced crews will appreciate the many sheltered bays along the Turkish coast which encourage you to stop for swimming and snorkelling in clear turquoise water.
Discover the Turquoise coast
Turkey offers an unspoilt coastline which is ideal for sailing holidays, with many beautiful bays all along the coast, perfect for a lunchtime swim stop or overnight anchorage. The afternoon winds are reliable and you can stay out sailing until early evening, enjoying the wind, as you won't be fighting for a place in a busy harbour or crowded marina. Most nights you will moor your yacht at a wooden jetty built by the restaurant in the bay.
