Straddling both Europe and Asia — and with it, the Mediterranean Sea (including the Aegean Sea), the Sea of Marmara and the Black Sea — Turkey is a country of contrasts which make for perfect sailing excursions. The most popular sailing areas are on the west coast, with the Gulf of Fethiye, Gulf of Gokova and Datca Peninsula providing prized and calm seas with well-provisioned marinas, ports and fishing towns to engage the senses. You can book your next adventure here, choosing from a wide variety of vessels including romantic private yachts and family-friendly catamarans. Renting a boat in Turkey has never been easier. Choose from a wealth of beautiful port towns and indulge in some of the world's finest seafood. The Turquoise Coast of south-west Turkey is probably one of the finest for first-time visitors, but be sure to take in the littering of over 500 islands dotted around the Aegean Sea and along the coastline, too. Many bays along here have vibrant restaurants with a jetty, offering free mooring for diners. The coastal areas of the south-west are generally warm and dry, with calm waters and favourable winds.
