If you have not heard about the delights of a blue cruise along the Turkish coast in a private charter then it is possible that there is a real holiday experience waiting for you on the Turquoise Coast. Turkey has become an increasingly popular tourist destination over recent years as people have discovered it offers much more than just sun, sea and sand. Everyone wants a healthy suntan from their summer holiday but suntans soon fade, certainly far more quickly than memories.
