Bodrum – Gulf of Hisarönü – Bodrum
The Gulf of Hisarönü. So quiet you can hear the beating of a butterfly’s wing. So calm you can see the sky reflected in the sea. Meditation or Hisarönü? We think Hisarönü.
Day 1 – Bodrum
Your Turkey gulet holiday starts in Bodrum. After check-in at 3pm your time is free to explore the historic and charming town of Bodrum. Learn about the city’s ancient past in Bodrum Castle and the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Or stroll round the cool lanes of the old town and pick up some treats. Bodrum is also famous for its nightlife, so why not have a drink on the beach before heading back to your boat. The first night is usually spent in Bodrum Marina but, providing preparations are complete, our captain can start your blue cruise on the first day.
Day 2 – Palamutbükü – İnceburun
Start your journey to relaxation in the clear waters and green slopes of Palamutbükü and İnceburun.
Day 3 – Aktur – Bencik
After a great breakfast and a morning dip in Aktur, set sail again to the deep cove of Bencik. The water here is incredibly calm and cool. It’s so calm, in fact, that in the evening you can star-gaze by looking at the water.
Day 4 – Emel Sayın Bay – Orhaniye – Selimiye
Your chance to walk on water. Orhaniye Bay’s Kız Kumu (or Girl’s Sand) is a strip of shallow water that divides the bay in half. Enjoy the fun of walking in the middle of the sea. Naturally this intriguing site has an accompanying legend; be sure to ask your captain about story.
Day 5 – Dirsek Bükü – Bozburun
