Perfect Sailing in Turkey

The south west coast of Turkey is known as the “Turkish Turquoise Coast” because of the colour of the water. At sea it is actually a deep dark blue, in shallow areas around the coast the turquoise is revealed. Everywhere the sea is crystal clear and swimmable.

There are three main charter areas on the “Turquoise coast”. Bodrum in the north. Marmaris in the middle and Fethiye/Gocek in the south. It is windier in the north, and often windless in the south. Each offers something different, but equally all are ideal for comfortable family sailing.

South western Turkey is served by two main airports Dalaman and Bodrum.

For Marmaris and Gocek/Fethiye use Dalaman airport.

Airport transfers are commonly used to get guests to their destinations, and there is a very good bus service between towns. Taxis are expensive comparatively.


We hope you enjoy these independent videos of sailing in Turkey. They provide a good balance of Turkey from Bodrum down to just beyond fethiye. Perfect Sailing and it’s clients were not involved in the production of these videos in any way.



Bodrum is the most northerly of the main charter sailing areas. It has a very busy nightlife and all the cosmopolitan shops of any big city. It is the windiest of the sailing areas with the longest open sea passages.


Marmaris is a huge natural bay. Well known for its bars and discos in the town it also offers fabulous walks in the national park where the marina is located (above).  Placed midway between Bodrum and Gocek, and adjacent to Hisaronu Gulf it offers the most choice .

Fethiye / Göcek

Fethiye & Gocek are 12 miles apart at opposite ends of Fethiye Korfezi sailing area which they share. Gocek is closest to the 12 bays, a beautiful protected area and closest to Dalaman airport. fethiye is a holiday town with a scenic bazaar full or restaurants, spices and Turkish delight.
