February 17, 2018 Travel Deals No Comments Email Email

As our lives get busier and working days get longer, we look forward to time away. When looking for that special time away, we all look for something unique. Turkey has always been a popular destination for many people across the world as it holds a beauty that is the perfect distraction.

In this modern era, we see beautiful places but always at a distance. As society becomes more advanced and technological, we tend to lose contact with nature and local culture. Gulet cruising is an ideal way to combine modern comforts with a return to the roots of ways humans enjoyed nature and culture in the past. Traditional gulet cruises will demonstrate the wonders of the Aegean coast and Greek Islands whilst sailing in luxury. Many companies such as Alaturka Turkey, offer great voyages around the coast, sailing past history and natural wonders all while you relax and enjoy the company of your fellow passengers.

Sites to Behold

So many countries boast of their history and views but none like Turkey and its Aegean coast. Many people will tell you that there is too much to see in just one holiday. Of course, one way to get as much from your time is with Alaturka Gulet Cruises. If you take a Fethiye to Olympos cruise, there are so many sites to see. Starting at the soughtafter ancient city of Olympos steeped in history, it is easy to see tha many different cultures throught history have come and gone leaving a treasure trove of wonders.

As you spend your days enjoying the ocean views, sailing on from Demre harbour you will come to the Sunken City, with pirates cave nearby, these partially sunken ruins have a rich cultural and military history all while nestled in the natural beauty of Kekova Island. Sadly, swimming amongst these ruins is forbidden now but this has been done to make sure the ruins are preserved for the future. Who wouldn’t want to see it year after year?

Yaglica Bay is a crystal-clear section of ocean before Kas harbour. This is a heavenly spot where passengers have the chance to snorkel with real turtles in their natural habitat.  Only surpassing the beauty of this section of water is Aquarium Bay, once famed for having a huge variety of brightly coloured fish, it is now a serene spot to have a swim and something to eat.

As this particular tour comes to the final day you are greeted with the famous Butterfly Valley. This is famous all across the globe and has be photographed as a stand out point along the coast. This valley is a virtually undisturbed piece of nature when compared to the nearby tourist town of Oludeniz, if you catch the right time of year there are hundreds of colourful butterflies floating about the plant life, which if you are quick with your camera, make the most spectacular photos.

Oludeniz is a modern jewel between the hills, situated along a secluded beach with its own lagoon it is anything but rustic. This hub of life is a well known tourist desination that is unmissable even if it is not your first time visiting. It is the perfect combination of the modern and the traditional.  Here you can find a variety of restaurants that offer international cuisine but also that specalise in trational foods, like the Desti Kebab that is cooked in a handmade clay jug. Along the main street you will find the sought after Turkish shops that allow every holiday maker to find there prized holiday souvenirs.

While this is only one tour when you Sail Turkey, it just goes to show that no matter how you expeirence the Turkish coast, sailing on a traditional gulet is a must for the journey as well as for the memories.
