If your perfect holidays consist of active exploration, then this gulet route might be for you. If you would love to get out of the gulet every now and then, but still love relaxing, nature, swimming & snorkeling, here you’ll get the perfect combination of both. Enjoy and discover the history, ancient sites, interesting hiking spots, and get a great overall experience.
1.DAY:Bodrum Bodrum is the Eastern St. Tropez with tons of options. You can party, check out the city castle, haggle in the market or just take a nice walk around the harbor and view hundreds of gulets staying there. This is one of the best destinations for starting your gulet adventure.
2.DAY:Knidos It is just incredible to stand and imagine the way this city must have been like 5000 years ago. Knidos was one of the most important ports in the region, steeped in history and culture. It is also a place where two oceans collide. Knidos is the point which separates the Aegean from the Mediterranean coast of Turkey and one of the must-visit destinations.
3.DAY:Datca Enjoy a walk around the harbor and visit plenty of waterside restaurants. Or you may visit a swimming beach area with some really good views and crystal clear water. There are several nice shops there (nothing fancy) and it is generally a great spot for people that like to go out of the gulet but enjoy smaller quiet towns.
4.DAY:Aktur-Bencik Most of the yachtsmen claim that if one does not anchor at Bencik, it means you did not sail on the Aegean coast of Turkey. This miniature fiord extends about 1.5 miles and there are tens of anchorages on both sides of the bay. This is one of the prettiest bays in Hisarönü ideal for watersports and swimming.
5.DAY:Orhaniye-Selimiye If you’re in search of “real” Turkey then Selimiye is the place to come. It has a laid-back family atmosphere and it is as unspoiled as it gets. There’s still a surprisingly wide choice of cafés and restaurants there – but life is calm and easy.
6.DAY:Dirsekbükü-Bozburun Village life in Bozburun is geared around agriculture, fishing and the building of the traditional gulets. It is very interesting to check out the local boatyards and see how these amazing vessels are built. Dirsek Buku offers perfect shelter a great swim and a nice restaurant. No access from land and a great place to visit.
7.DAY:Black Island-Poyraz Bay We will start to cruise early in the morning to Karaada (Black Island). Breakfast and a swimming break will be at Poyraz Bay which is located on the southern side of the island. This is such a nice bay with its turquoise-blue waters.
