All the way from the bustling port of Fethiye, to the resort town of Antalya, this coastline is referred to as the Turquoise Coast for its shiny and ever so twinkling blue seas. The country enjoys long summers that last from May through October, so you are well on your way to comfortably enjoying its sandy beaches and sheer cliffs, as well as the hundreds of small secluded hidden coves that are tucked away, making it an epic adventure that’s one for the books. Also, let’s not forget the mouth-watering fresh seafood cuisine that’s waiting for you.

Sailing season and climate

In Turkey, there is a variety of climates, with considerable differences between the areas, and also with some microclimates due to the different exposure of slopes and coasts. The coastal areas have generally a mild climate, but the coast of the Black Sea is colder than that of the Mediterranean. Summer is dry and sunny throughout the country, except on the north-east coast.

High Season months are considered to be July, August and September and charter costs are highest in this period. Mid Season months are May, June and October when charter prices are lower and the weather is still very nice and warm but a bit windier. Turkey is warmer than Croatia for example so sailing is very pleasant even in October when the sea is still warm.
