With a hive of activity all year round, natural beauty, sandy beaches, small fishing villages, history and culture, Turkey holds something for everyone and more.
Turkey’s culture and history is as ancient and diverse as its geography and climate. Homer’s poem “Odyssey” is set in Turkey and the infamous Trojan wars were fought there. The capital was known as Byzantium by early Greek settlers before it become part of the Roman Empire and renamed Constantinople after Constantine the Great. When Rome fell, Constantinople became the center of the Byzantine Empire before the Seljuk Turks ruled for nearly 200 years. After the Mongols invaded and the Ottoman Empire was swept away at the end of World War I, modern Turkey was born in 1922.
The Bosphorus separates the European part of Turkey from the Asian region and its geography means the country has a rich biodiversity with hundreds of parks and protected areas. The coastal areas are a prime sailing region with a Mediterranean climate and hot, dry summers, as well as calm waters and kind winds.
When it comes to mooring fees in Turkey, many bays have restaurants and a jetty. You can moor here free of charge, although you will be expected to buy a meal from the nearby restaurant, which may be a more expensive than restaurants without a jetty. If you find a sheltered cove, you may struggle to drop anchor as many are very deep. For conservation reasons, mooring using trees is not encouraged although many coves have mooring bollards or rocks with rings in which you can use instead
