Learn to Sail Turkey

Sailing holidays in Turkey have become increasingly popular in recent years helped in no small way by the number of direct flights into the airports that serve the Turquoise Coast. You may fly into Bodrum in the extreme South West corner of Turkey or Antalya towards the eastern end of the Turkish Riviera but Dalaman which is less than an hour from Fethiye is perhaps the best choice as an airport of arrival? 

Sailing Holidays Turkey gulet

The traditional Turkish gulet, a wooden sailing vessel with two or three masts are a popular way to see the Mediterranean Coast and the Greek Islands of the Aegean. Locally built they are sometimes as long as 35 metres and offer private charter sailing holidays for varying numbers of tourists. They became increasing popular as South West Turkey began to attract an increasing number of tourists. Many had perhaps not considered a sailing holiday before but the word soon spread and gulet cruises along the Turkish Coast are now a regular feature for those coming to the Eastern Mediterranean.
