Let’s put it this way, as we’re pretty keen to ensure the fun doesn’t stop when the sun goes down each evening during our MedSailors Turkey sailing trip adventures, here are just a few things you can look forward to as evening falls.

Take a walk as the sun goes down on a Turkey sailing tour - Stretch your legs before hitting the bars

An Evening Stroll

Turkey is almost a location of two halves, home to both vibrant bazaars and tranquil spots that wouldn’t look out of place on a desert island. Fethiye’s promenade is one of those unmissable locations, somehow managing to combine the incredible atmosphere of even the most bustling locations with beyond beautiful views that you certainly won’t forget in a hurry.

Sip Sunset Cocktails on Your MedSailors Turkey Adventure

With so many tempting ocean-front cocktail bars to choose from, let’s just say there are much worse ways to spend an evening than sipping your fave drink as the sun sets, sending vibrant red, orange and pink hues streaming across the sky. It’s pretty special, not gonna lie.

Tuck into a Traditional Turkish Feast on Your Sailing Trip

From charming local tavernas to incredible restaurants, Turkish menus are bursting with incredible dishes. Made with ultra-fresh ingredients and often from recipes that have been honed and perfected for centuries, expect to enjoy plenty of flavourful dolma, iconic kebabs, traditional Turkish delight, and sweet baklava during your travels.


Celebrate the night like a local and sample some raki, a strong aniseed based drink, then hit the dancefloor and bust out a few of your best moves, take things easy in a chilled jazz bar, or even learn how to belly dance, the authentic Turkish way! You’re going to have the night of your life, trust us!

A Spot of Shopping

With a variety of shops and bazaars open until late, whether you’re wanting to stock up on sweet treats, find a unique souvenir, or pick up some gifts for your mates back home, you’re certain to find something that fits the bill amongst the winding streets of one of the many charming seaside towns en route.
