Although much of a Turkey sailing break will no doubt be spent making the most of the sunny beaches and temperate climate, there is one must-try activity that takes its place indoors. A Turkish bath, or Hammam, is a great way to not just relax but to really soak up the traditional culture of this wonderful country.

Much of what goes on in a Hammam is what you would expect from any other steam room. But with its important place at the very heart of Turkish culture, you can expect something a little more special. Inspired by antiquated Roman designs, a true Turkish Hammam is a feast for the eyes and for the soul.

If you do opt for a Hammam, be prepared for a range of treatments to soothe and relax the body. From full-body massages to rejuvenating body scrubs, pampering is the top priority here. You can experience this in the traditional way, by wearing nothing at all, it’s entirely up to you!

Aside from the social side of a Hammam, there is no doubt your body and mind will benefit from this peaceful of experience. A must-do on any Turkey sailing holiday.
