Sailing Turkey | Bodrum:

Our main base is situated in Bodrum marina on the south west coast of Turkey. The Bodrum marina is in the bay opposite the historic St Peter's Castle, which is situated in the old town area with the sea surrounding its southern walls. Sailing from here the Gökova and Hisarönü gulfs can easily be explored, and we are also very close to some of the Greek Islands and it’s certainly worthwhile sailing in that direction with your yacht, catamaran or in a flotilla, to pay them a visit.

Sailing Turkey | Bodrum and subregions:

To the North, South, East and West of Yalikavak are fabulously varying sailing areas. The Turkish coastal belt has the sweet perfume of mandarin groves, pine forests and flowering oleander. No matter in which direction you head you will find remote secluded bays, unspoilt fishing hamlets and colourful coastal towns.

The Gulf of Gokova is to the East and at its entrance is Bodrum, alive with bars, restaurants and bustling market stalls. Here you can get lost in time bargaining for virtually anything from exotic spices to silk carpets. In the contrast of this hive of activity are the many sheltered anchorages cleft deep into the mountainous coastline. Explore and discover small fishing villages, farming settlements and hidden coves where simple wooden jetties are the watermark of cheerful easy going restaurants. These are the places where you can really let your hair down and join in the local entertainment of folk songs and belly dancing.

South of Yalikavak at the furthest reaches of the Datca peninsula, where the Mediterranean and Aegean seas unite, is the tiny hamlet of Knidos. In the 4th Century there were 70,000 inhabitants, now just a few goat herders, the restaurateur and his family. Above and below the crystal clear water the remains of the past await you: snorkel around the sunken walls of the Trireme harbour or climb the amphitheatre to the temple where Aphrodite once reigned.
