Sail the seas of a country renown for its history, beauty, and cultural significance. From Istanbul to Antalya, the Turkish archipelago in the Aegean Sea will entertain all explorers. Find seclusion in protected inlets and relax on the beach or hike to higher elevations to see the world spread out in front of you. Hug the coastline and stop at each coastal town to experience the finest Mediterranean cuisine and tour historical architecture and monuments at the cultural crossroads of the world.
Turkey has grown as a yacht charter destination which has led to a development of luxury resorts, easier access to historical and cultural attractions, and infrastructure encouraging docking and mooring to better tour coastal destinations. The Turkish coastline and archipelago offers a mix of secluded beaches, parks, busy cities, and charming towns so there is something for everyone.
Climate of coastal Turkey is polarized by hot, dry, and sunny summers and mild rainy winters. It is recommended to visit the region between May and October to coincide with the dry season. Water temperatures are also warm during this time of year so be sure to pack your swimwear. 300 days of the year are sunny and the UV index is high as well so sun protection is highly recommended. Winds in the region are typically higher during winter months but they still have enough strength to make for a pleasant sailing experience in the summer.
