Turkey - yacht charter, tourist guide, descriptions, routes, photos
Due to its location, Turkey has always been considered a bridge between Europe and Asia, where the East clashes with the West. The Sea of Marmara, the Bosphorus and the Dardanelles straits separate its European and Asian sides. Turkey is also a country of many contrasts, a meeting point of different cultures and peoples, where a specific mixture of cultural history (Troy, Miletus, Didyma, Efes, Pergamon, historic traces left by the Persians, the Hittites, the Seljuk and Ottoman Turks) and art interestingly intermingle with the latest technological advances and modern tourist resorts.
Holidays in Turkey give a perfect chance to combine relax at the seaside in a fantastic climate (particularly between April and October), with the sun, rich cultural heritage, historical buildings, and a crazy nightlife. It is best to go there in May, June, and October, when the meltemi winds are less strong, and yacht prices are lower than at the peak season. What is supposedly the most important factor for every tourist yearning for a bit of warmth is the sunbathing weather for 320 days a year. The coasts of the four seas: Mediterranean, Marmara, Aegean, and Black, attract with their sandy beaches and azure water. Beautiful sunny weather is typical along the whole Turkish coast. Off the season, temperatures oscillate between 20 °C and 26 °C, but when it starts, they are much higher. Only water and wind can bring refreshment then.
A well-organised yacht and catamaran fleet, as well as state-of-the-art service stations in marinas will add variety to the time spent under the white sails.
