Day 1 Olympos to Gokkaya Bay

Most of us are picked up around 10am from Olympos. The transfer to Demre takes about 90mins, where there is another pick up at Demre bus station. We board our gulet just after midday and cruise to Pirates Cove for swimming, snorkelling and lunch. Next up is the fascinating Sunken City, a 2000 year-old ancient town which was destroyed by an earthquake. We actually cruise over this protected World Heritage site before crossing to Simena Castle where we climb to the top to take in the magnificent view over the bay. Our overnight stop is in Gokkaya Bay, which also means welcome party time! We can head over to the Smuggler’s Inn to meet up with other travellers and dance through the night and grab a cocktail or 3. A free boat service picks you up and runs regularly all night. If you don’t fancy a party, simply relax and chill out on the gulet.

Day 2 Gokkaya Bay to Kas to Aquarium Bay

A nice, easy start to the day to soothe any sore heads - breakfast in a nearby bay with a chance for a morning swim. We then cruise to Kas, a fishing village with a charming little harbour where we dock and disembark to explore the local boutique shops, which specialise in handmade jewellery and clothes. We finish the day in Aquarium Bay in a breathtaking spot for swimming and snorkelling in crystal-clear water, followed by dinner. We spend the night here and sleep under the stars on deck.

Optional excursion to book locally in Kas: Scuba diving

Day 3 Aquarium Bay to Butterfly Valley to St. Nicholas Island

We head north in the morning and wake up to the sight of Butterfly Valley. After breakfast we stay here for swimming and an optional hike up to the waterfall. Butterfly Valley is famous for being the home of over 130 different types of butterflies but they only appear in large numbers at certain times of the year so let’s hope we get lucky! Afterwards, we head over to Oludinez, Europe’s most photographed beach and one of the best sites in the world to paraglide. In the evening, we anchor at St. Nicholas Island in time for a short hike up through the island's ruins to witness the amazing sunset. Another night under the stars anchored next to St. Nicholas Island.........

Optional excursion: Paragliding

Day 4 St. Nicholas Island to Fethiye

On our last day we enjoy breakfast at St.Nicholas Island and then cruise over to Tarzan Bay or Samanlik Bay for a swim and lunch. We finally dock in Fethiye in the afternoon with plenty of time for last-minute pics and farewells to your onboard family.

If you need great value accommodation in Fethiye for a night or 2 after your sail then you can book our

Our gulets are traditionally-built, wooden Turkish motor-yachts which usually hold around 16 to 18 passengers. We strongly feel that they are the ONLY way to see the Turkish coast – imagine waking every morning for breakfast and a swim in idyllic bays and cruising along the coast to a new destination each day. The decks are perfect for sunbathing and jumping into the sea, the food is excellent and there is a tender boat included to shuttle you to and from all the sites such as the stunning Oludeniz beach, the charming fishing village of Kas and several ancient ruins.
 
Of course, it’s not all about relaxing and sightseeing. There is an onboard bar and opportunities to experience the nightlife and party at venues such as the Smugglers Inn. Sounds like the perfect trip? You bet it is, and with prices starting at £165 GBP per person for a 4-day cruise with full-board (breakfast, lunch and dinner included), it is incredible value!

Space in a shared cabin on Sail Turkey cruise
