Day 1 Gocek, Aga Limani, Gokgemile Bay

With Dalaman International airport only 20- minutes away, Gocek is a jewel of a town nestled between Fethiye and Dalyan. What puts Gocek on the map is its 6 marinas and the bay area is also a harbor for islands that provide ample anchorage for many yachts. This amazing harbor town is home to Super Yachts and is a great starting point for many a yacht charter in the Mediterranean.

*Within the Gulf of Fethiye lies the twin bays of Aga Limani. This is a wonderful place to anchor, and are prefect for swimming, fishing and just enjoying the day. The waters here are cool since they are connected to an underwater fresh water stream that comes down from the mountains. The seawater here is crystal clear, but if you prefer to visit inland, then take an hours walk to the ancient city of Lyda. There you will find a lot of archeological discoveries and the path leading there is exceptionally delightful.

Day 2

Day 2 Ekincik (Dalyan)

Between Marmaris and Dalyan lays the wonderful bay of Ekincik. What is most beautiful in this bay is small Iztuzu Beach. Iztuzu Beach is closed at night since it is a nesting ground for the loggerhead turtle, otherwise it provides a carefree pebble and sand beach environment during the day, when only a few gulets are moored off its side. Just after the beach you will find the Dalyan Delta, and this is an explorers dream, with its Lycian tombs and the ancient ruined city of Kaunos. If you prefer a more active respite, then take to some of the water sports offered in the bay of Ekincik. Apart from these three activities, which should be enough, there is also a short brisk walk along the western banks of the Delta that will provide you with a chance to spot a wild boar foraging for food.

Day 5

Day 5 Dirsekbuku, Aktur Bay, Datca

Dirsekbuku is located between Hisaronu Bay and the Aegean Sea. The area has many sheltered coves and hidden coves and is a great stopover spot on a sailing gulet from Bodrum to Marmaris. There are quite a few small islands that you can sail past and anchor for a swim or just relax while relaxing with great views.

* Aktur Bay on the Datca Peninsula received an amazing award as the best harbor in Turkey. This is some achievement and should not be discounted. Aktur is located between Datca and Kurukabuk and is the narrowest part of the peninsula. Two spheres of water are held back by a narrow patch of land. The Persian army back in 550 BC (Xerxes & 300) built a tunnel so that it could go directly to Gokova Bay in order to accelerate the advance of their fleets. Today, Aktur Bay is a vision of beauty that many are trying to emulate, which is perhaps why it is so highly regarded.

One of the popular coastal stops is Datca, a small yacht stop on the south coast, over 75 km west of Marmaris. Datca is located in an area that provides you with many small shelters along the peninsula, so you can anchor along the coastline and enjoy a swim in the privacy of your own cove. The coast is dotted with small fishing villages and farming towns, and the local tomatoes and olives are renowned for their flavor. While visiting Datca, try local produce and maybe even ask your chef to use them as a main ingredient.

Day 6

Day 6 Palamutbuku, Knidos

On the 8th day of your luxury gulet charter, you will visit Palamutbuku. On the tip of the southern coast of the Datca Peninsula in Turkey is the beautiful city of Palamutbuku. This amazing quiet town, located close to the historic ruins of Knidos, is home to some of the most coveted long and quiet beaches, verdant streets and walled gardens. It is as if a fairytale city comes to life as you walk along the seaside and look down at some of the purest waters of the Aegean Sea. In fact, you can walk well in the sea and be able to see every rock and fish around your feet, even when the water reaches your head.

* The sea is full of fish and many dinners can be caught seconds before they are served alongside delicious local produce. What’s still great is that this coastline is still pristine from all the tourism expected, and the city has many wonderful taverns and restaurants, as well as amazing residents that will make your stay even more memorable.

In the extreme south-west of Turkey, on the Datca peninsula, there is a small archaeological town of Knidos. This is one of the best historical legends in Turkey, preserved in excellent condition. You will find the Statue of Demeter in one place, and there were two Lions in the ancient harbor that stood guard, but they are now in the British Museum in London. The main attractions are the Temple of Aphrodite and the Necropolis. Excavations continue, and for more than half a century more and more amazing finds have been discovered. Since Knidos is considered a remote area, the best way to get there is by boat. This is a must stop for all yacht charters and is one site that will provide many great memories as well as photos.
