Cruising in Turkey Along the Turquoise Coast

On this relaxing sailing holiday we cruise along the beautiful Turquoise Coast on a traditional wooden 'gulet'. Departing from Fethiye harbour we explore small bays and islands, discover ancient relics, and swim and snorkel in the warm clear waters that give the coastline its name. We visit the hillside village of Kalkan, the harbour town of Kas and the submerged ancient city of Kekova. There are also opportunities to walk in Saklikent Gorge and visit historical sites such as Patara (the birthplace of Saint Nicholas).
