TURKEY - The Perfect choice - Sail off the beaten track this summer in safe secluded waters and discover, unrivaled beauty for exceptional value.
It comes as no surprise that the word ‘turquoise’ derives from the Greek word for Turkey, since this fascinating country’s coastline is lapped by crystal-clear, turquoise waters, with secluded anchorages, endless sunshine and great sailing winds, Turkey is a true yachtsman’s paradise.
Whether it is a bareboat charter, a flotilla holiday, a Learn to Sail Course or a hotel stay you are after, Sunscape is here to help you make your holiday special.
The Sunscape Team have visited all the places on offer, therefore the team is extremely knowledgeable and can taylor-make your holiday with a personal touch.
Sunscape is well established in Turkey. We have built an excellent relationship with the local people, who never fail to welcome you with a smile.
Our flotillas in Turkey explore the magnificent southern coast from the vibrant port of Fethiye. On offer is a range of relaxed one and two week itineraries, which allow sailing at a leisurely pace with some lazy lunch time anchorages, and other cruises which offer a little more challenge and greater mileage each day. All allow you to explore independently under sail during the day before meeting up with your fellow sailors for an evening of good company and great food.
The Fethiye flotilla will appeal to those wishing to sail at a leisurely pace, with short distance daily cruising in the sheltered waters of Fethiye Bay. From Ece Saray Marina in the vibrant port of Fethiye we sail across the large gulf to the numerous coves located on the western side of the bay. Sailing amongst the beautiful Skopea Limani archipelago before returning via anchorages at Cold Water Bay and Karacaoren.
