Turkey is every Instagram lover’s dream destination. Here are just a few reasons why!


#1 Göcek Marina

The beginning of your MedSailors Turkey extravaganza calls for a group selfie by the marina, surely? The water is framed by a verdant, mountainous landscape, with the rich blue and green hues making for a top-notch Instagram pic – no filter needed. You’ll also want to document your first traditional kebab and the hustle and bustle of the local bazaars!

#2 Relax in Karacaören Bay on your sailing trip

This secluded bay is home to sea turtles and is ideal for a spot of snorkelling in the crystal clear turquoise waters. Bring along a waterproof camera because the epic underwater selfies you’ll snap here for your socials will help you remember one of the best parts of your sailing trip!

#3 Kas

Cameras at the ready because on the way into Kas you might spot a pod of dolphins splashing around in the water, which is just magical! Kas itself is an idyllic fishing village with a lively harbour, bustling bazaars, and white buildings built into the surrounding hillside. Gorgeous!

#5 Kalkan

This region is home to the spectacular Saklikent Gorge and the UNESCO-protected ancient sites of Xanthos and Letoon, which are just breathtaking – you’re definitely going to want to take a few snaps to remember their very distinct atmospheres. Oh, and did we mention the sunset cocktails you’ll get to enjoy during your evenings here?

#6 Chill in Coldwater Bay on your MedSailors Turkey adventure

Yes, the name totally reflects the temperature of the water! Soak in the idyllic views of boats gently bobbing on the water with the mountainous terrain in the background. You’ll probably be tempted to jump in for a refreshing swim and we say go for it – just don’t forget your underwater camera!

#Unforgettable Fethiye

Home to the spectacular Oludeniz beach, we highly recommend taking a paragliding adventure here. If you want to make your mates at home feel just a tiny bit jel, capture your view on a Go-Pro – that’ll do the trick nicely!
