Bodrum Sailing Holidays
Set your sails and start the most relaxing sailing holiday in Bodrum, the ancient city of Halicarnassus, located in the southwestern region of Turkey. The entrance to this picturesque bay, where the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas meet, is guarded by the medieval Bodrum Castle. Hop off your charter yacht to explore the numerous caves and reefs, and swim in the clear and warm sea. This place is extremely rich with history and culture - it is the birthplace of the ancient historian Herodotus and the site of the Tomb of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Yacht Charter in Bodrum
Bodrum is a perfect combination of old and new, a mix of East and West. Charter a yacht in Bodrum and stroll around the famous Turkish bazaars and do not miss a chance to relax in Hamam, a Turkish bath. Discover old fishing villages and try delicious seafood. Traditional yachts have been built here since the ancient times. The Bodrum Cup, a regatta for gulets that takes place in October, will also be something that you may find interesting.
With hot and dry summers and mild and humid winters, you can sail here throughout the whole year. Here, the temperature is the most pleasant in spring and autumn, while summers are pretty hot.
