7 days exploring Turkey’s Turquoise Coast by superyacht

7 days exploring Turkey’s Turquoise Coast by superyacht

1 of 7 1/7
Day 1

Istanbul to Marmaris

Superyacht owner Paola Trifirò takes us on a 7-day journey along Turkey’s stunning Turquoise Coast, from the magic of Istanbul to underwater ruins in Kekova.

Few countries in the world have such cultural diversity as Turkey. Although its cities are very much grounded in the modern world, its history and architecture have been influenced by the Byzantine, Ottoman, Roman and Persian empires.

Its southwest coast – commonly called the Turquoise coast – shows the strains of recent tourist development, but each town and island has its own magic. There are many must-sees while chartering a yacht in Turkey, whether it be easily accessible ancient ruins, sweeping beaches, quiet anchorages or lovely cafes and restaurants.

For health-conscious gastronomes, few cuisines rival that of Turkey. The Greeks and Turks have a centuries-old disagreement over the origins of their similar table fare, which typically features seafood, lamb, fruits, yogurt and olives among many other things.

Turkey’s largest city, Istanbul, is a world unto itself with abundant evidence of all the country’s storied past and vibrant present. Plan to spend a few days before or after your cruise to experience the splendours of this world capital. Few leave without a rug or a Turkish kilim purchased in one of the city’s bazaars.

Day 1: Istanbul to Marmaris

You are likely to start your superyacht charter is Istanbul. From there you’ll take a short flight to Dalaman international airport, which serves southwest Turkey, and meet your yacht. Marmaris is a tourist town extraordinaire. its marina waterfront features a long stretch of outdoor restaurants and its castle and the adjacent old Town are a worthy walk.
