Turkey is definitely one of the sailing hotspots in Europe. The varied coastline with countless bays, islands, fantastic swimming stops with sandy beaches, striking rocks, and green landscapes make Turkey a perfect sailing destination for everyone.

The hospitality and warmth of the locals invite you to stay and remain in the memory of many sailors for a long time. Another reason to go sailing to Turkey is the possibility to sail to the Greek islands. Turkey is also particularly suitable for families with children, as there are many anchorages with sandy and shallow beaches.

Turkish Riviera

The Turkish Riviera stretches almost 120 kilometers along the Southern coast of the country around the province of Antalya. Besides Antalya, the most important cities in this region are Alanya in the East, Side and Belek in the center, and Kemer and Kas in the West.

Especially the numerous sandy beaches characterize the distinctive appearance. The Taurus Mountains, a mountain range that separates the Mediterranean region from the central region of Anatolia, form the contrast.

Sailing on the Turkish Riviera is possible from April-November. In the low season, temperatures are pleasantly warm, while in the summer months, they readily climb above 30 °C. This hot-dry climate, therefore, attracts many sun worshippers.

Sailing on the Turkish Riviera is rather easy, which makes this region accessible even for sailing novices. Well-protected waters, optimal visibility conditions, and short distances between moorings create ideal conditions for a relaxing yacht charter in Turkey.

The Turkish Riviera is one of the country’s tourism magnets and therefore has a lot of attractions to offer. The most prominent among them is certainly the two of the seven wonders of the world (Ruins of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus).
