While the Côte d'Azur and the Italian Riviera are filled with private yachts and luxury yacht charters during the summer Mediterranean season Turkey's expansive cruising grounds are less crowded. As a result there are still plenty of secluded anchorages and hidden gems to be discovered. The water quality is among some of the best in the Mediterranean and the sea is virtually free from jellyfish — which plague the French Riviera.
If you really want to enjoy the seclusion that this destination can offer consider visiting in May or October — the temperatures are still warm but the destination is even quieter.
