Enjoy a relaxing and scenic seven-night journey around the picturesque bays and across the azure waters of Turkey on a traditional gulet ship – with all travel and full board

Day 2: Bodrum - Orak Island - Seven Islands

This morning, you’ll have a short briefing about the boat and itinerary, then cruise off in the direction of uninhabited Orak Island. Here, you’ll have the opportunity to snorkel and swim in the crystal blue seas. After lunch, move on to Seven Islands, where a collection of coral reefs await. Take a walk among the pine trees, and even try your hand at sailing the boat (weather permitting), before stopping in Kufre Bay for the night. (Meals: breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner)

Day 3: Tuzla - Longoz - Ballı Su

Start your day with a morning swim in Turkey’s twinkling waters, then cruise to Tuzla Bay. You’ll move on to have lunch in Longoz Bay, sheltered by towering pines, then anchor in Ballı Su for the night. (Meals: breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea, dinner)

Day 5: English Harbour - Ayinda

Today you’ll have the option to explore Turtle Beach and the green delta of Dalyan, as well as the fascinating English Harbour, where British Naval ships docked in secret in WWII.
