One of the most difficult challenges when arranging a holiday can be making sure that everyone’s needs are met. Some members of your group may enjoy visiting interesting sights, others may wish to try new sports, and some might simply want to relax and soak up the sunshine. The great news is that you can combine all these different elements into one holiday to suit everyone in your group when you sail Turkey.

Exploring Turkey - Taking on different activities

For those who enjoy history and culture, Turkey has plenty to see, with lots of archaeological sites along the ancient Lycian Way. Letoon and Xanthos are unmissable UNESCO world heritage sites, while the deserted ghost village of Kayakoy has a haunting beauty. The Turquoise Coast is dotted with some of the world’s best beaches, including the unspoilt wonder of 12km-long Patara beach. There are plenty of charming spots to enjoy a dip in the crystal clear waters, including Tomb Bay in Skopea Limani and the exquisite beauty of ancient Gocek.

For those who want an adrenaline-packed adventure, Oludeniz is Turkey’s main paragliding spot and also offers great cycling and water sports opportunities. Visit a traditional market in Fethiye and try your hand at haggling for a bargain, or take advantage of the town’s bustling nightlife.

The beauty of a sailing holiday is that you can visit a new port every day, taking in all the varied delights that this part of the world has to offer.
