Turkey is a geographical and cultural bridge between Europe and Asia. This is where East meets West. You will be truly amazed by the warm and friendly people of the country, and all along the coast, especially in the south, you’ll find wonderful places to discover and explore. The Turkish coast has so many ideal places for sailing, from the Calipolis peninsula to Antalya, with innumerable bays, gulfs and peninsulas covering over 1,000 nautical miles. Sailing along the coast from the base at Marmaris you’ll find acres of ruins, remnants of the history of this region from the pre-Hellenic period until the time of Byzantium. Be sure to visit the ruins of Caunus, Ephesus, Pergamum, Kas, Myra. The ruins of Asia Minor are considered the most picturesque in the Mediterranean. Bodrum has earned its reputation as the center of Turkish art, with its vibrant, friendly community and the bohemian atmosphere of its small art galleries. This community has developed a lifestyle at once very relaxed during the day and particularly lively at night. Bodrum nightlife always begins with dinner in one of the restaurants of the waterfront, where you’ll enjoy fabulous seafood and local specialties.
