Sailing Holidays in Turkey

Sail Turkey

 Marmaris, Turkey

Marmaris Waterpark is located right on the sea front with private beach.

With fair winds, stunning bays, sheltered anchorages, magnificent scenery and numerous ancient sites along the coastline, a holiday sailing through the Turkish Islands is perfect and Marmaris is an ideal starting point from which to begin your sailing holiday in Turkey.

Marmaris town is very historical and is built adjacent to the Suleyman Castle. The winding streets around the fortress contrast with the bustle of the bazaar behind it. Turkish gullets line the town waterfront, offering day trips to various beaches and dive sites.


Netsel Marina, Turkey

Right in the heart of the town, the perfect place to start your sailing holiday. A short walk from the dock will take you to restaurants in the marina along with a well stocked supermarket and shops. If you feel like exploring the Old Town is within walking distance.


Needless to say the Marina still has all the usual facilities; toilets & showers, electric & water on the dock. the swimming pool is located next to the pontoon serving cold drinks and snacks until late evening.

If you haven’t visited the town of Marmaris it is just a short walk round the marina. You can wander around the Old Town, visit the castle and shop til you drop in the bazaar, selling “genuine fakes”.  You will find a huge variety of restaurants to choose from or street food if you wish to eat on the go.

Marmaris is ideally located for a sailing holiday, right in the middle of the sailing area halfway between Bodrum & Kas, this provides you with a myriad of sailing choices, so to assist in planning your holiday we have prepared a few sailing itineraries.


Gocek, Turkey

Another perfect sailing ground take a look at the Skopia Limani region. Well protected against the open sea, numerous bays and anchorages. At the head of Skopia Limani is the small town of Gocek.

Marin Turk Gocek Marina is a quiet marina with excellent toilet and shower facilities, water and electric on the dock. Gocek village is a short walk from the marina and has everything you need: supermarkets, shops, gift stores, restaurants, cafes and bars. The supermarkets will deliver your shopping to your yacht making for easy provisioning. 

“With heaps of choices of bars and restaurants lining the water front, you will have a very enjoyable evening here. Behind the frontage you will find boutique shops galore.”
