Turkey

Stretching from Marmaris in the west to Antalya in the east, the Lycian Coast features some of Turkey’s most breathtaking coastal scenery. It’s home to rugged mountains and secluded coves, as well as fascinating ruins and turquoise seas that just invite you to jump in. Add to that, charming harbour towns and lively beach resorts and it’s easy to see why this is one of the most popular destinations for Blue Cruise gulet trips.

Discover the charming villages in the Taurus Mountains that back Antalya, with the option to go trekking, horseback riding or skiing. Then descend to its picturesque sands to soak up the sun-drenched lifestyle. Travel along the coast to explore the Hellenistic ruins at Olympos and witness the eternal flames of the chimaera or bunk down in one of the iconic tree houses that teeter in the forest.

It’s just a short hop from here to Demre, which was built on the ruins of ancient Myra and is home to the Basilica of St. Nicholas where the figure of Santa Claus originated. Explore the Lycian sarcophagi at ancient Istlada that lay scattered amidst beautifully preserved houses or visit the ruins of Arykanda that cascade down the terraced slopes of Akdaǧ Mountain.

Don’t miss the opportunity to explore the sunken ruins of Kekova Island or soak up the views from Kaleköy Castle on the island of Simena. Then visit the acropolis relics and sarcophagi of Üçaǧız that was built on the site of ancient Teimiussa, with ruins dating back to the 4th century BC.

Charismatic Kaş lies just to the west, with narrow, cobblestone streets weaving through the whitewashed houses of its Old Town. Adventure seekers can head to the Saklikent Gorge to go canyoning or go mountain biking through the rugged surrounds. The diving is particularly superb here, with wartime wrecks and cargo ships now covered in a myriad of marine life.

Fethiye is another popular hub on the Turquoise Coast, with a picturesque waterfront boulevard and the ancient ruins of Telmessos to explore. Be sure to visit the sheltered lagoon of nearby Ölüdeniz Beach and the stunning nature reserve of Butterfly Valley or venture to one of the “12 Islands” that scatter the bay.
