It’s probably no surprise that, here at MedSailors HQ, Turkey is one of our very favourite places on the planet and we’re pretty excited about showing you exactly why we’re collectively so in love with this beautiful country. We’d love to welcome you in person on one of our Turkey sailing adventures, but until then, here are just a few snippets of some of our fave things about this dreamy destination.

Two Words: The Food!

You can almost taste the tender kebabs, ultra-fresh vegetables and dreamy traditional meze options now, can’t you?! And yes, everything is as delicious as it sounds, looks, and smells!

Learn About the Region’s History on your Turkey Sailing Adventure

Turkey is full of incredible historical locations, and there’s plenty of history to uncover throughout your sailing adventure. One of our personal favourite sites to explore is the now abandoned village of Kayakoy. Incredibly atmospheric, exploring these UNESCO protected ruins is one of those experiences you won’t ever forget.

Tuck into Traditional Turkish Sweet Treats

If you have a bit of a sweet tooth, you’re one million percent going to fall in love with Turkey. From a variety of flavours of traditional Turkish delight and sweet baklava to moreish halva and delightfully unusual kunefe, we recommend sampling a little bit of everything because your taste buds WILL thank you!

Explore the Bazaars

The sights, sounds and scents of a Turkish bazaar are overwhelming in the best possible way. There’s so much to see and so many locals to meet, learn from and barter with, you can’t not have an incredible time taking part in every day Turkish life and shopping for souvenirs for your family and pals back home.

Soak in Turkey’s Natural Beauty on Your MedSailors Holiday

The Turkish coastline is 10/10 Instagram worthy. Deep azure hued bays and spectacular sunsets over the ocean are out-of-this-world beautiful and snorkelling with turtles, paddleboarding in secluded coves, and swimming in the world famous blue cave are just some of the incredible experiences awaiting you. So, what are you waiting for?
