Bodrum sailing route – 7 days of history and relaxation
Starting point: Bodrum
Arrival: We can arrange a transfer from the airport to the marina for you. The transfer is not included in the price.
About: Bodrum is a popular Turkish resort. It is located on the shores of the Aegean Sea in the province of Mugla. In ancient Greek, it was called Halikarnas. It is located on the Bodrum Peninsula, opposite the Greek island of Kos.
The city is a very popular tourist destination and yachting center. Due to its picturesque coastline and lively nightlife, it is visited by hundreds of thousands of tourists every year.
The plan for the first day is to arrive on a Saturday in Bodrum and get to the Marina. Your check-in on the boat will be at 5 PM and you will spend the night there.
Gumusluk is the ultimate location for a relaxing escape, also known as Bodrum summer city. Use your time on the beach of Gumusluk to the fullest!
Asin Liman is an ancient harbor that is famous for its ruins that date back to the Byzantine period. Lose yourself in the history of Byzantine and be an archeologist for an afternoon.
The main benefit of the Kazıklı bay is that there are not a lot of boats visiting or passing through.
Turgutreis has endless beaches and an open-air Bazaar interesting to visit and experience the Turkish culture.
The bay is protected from the wind and great for anchoring. In the past, it served as a shelter for pirates for many years. Enjoy your last day exploring and relaxing.
Sail back to Bodrum and visit all the sights you didn’t have time for your first day. Don’t forget to try Turkish coffee or tea (çay)!
For those who want to spend the last day on the beach, there’s plenty to choose from. On the southern coast of the peninsula lie the golden sandy beaches at Bardakci, Gumbet, Bitez, Ortakent Yalisi, Karaincir, Bagla and Akyarlar, while on the western side are Gumusluk, Yalikavak and Turgut Reis.
For those who want seclusion, the northern coast boasts Turkbuku, Golkoy, and Gundogan – all small simple fishing villages, ideal for those who want a subdued and relaxing atmosphere.
