Turkey is home to some fantastic sights, both natural and manmade, and many are sure to have you reaching for your camera. Of course, it is a good idea to have your camera (or at least a smartphone with a decent built-in camera) on-hand as much as possible throughout your sailing holiday. However, as they involve travelling around multiple parts of Turkey sailing holidays are an especially good opportunity to grab some great photos. Some of the key camera-worthy sites to make sure you snap include:
This abandoned town is eerie and atmospheric. It is also a time capsule of 1920s Turkish life, which is when the last residents left, and an example of how quickly nature can reclaim a spot that humanity has left behind. While visiting Kayakoy, be sure to capture some of the fascinating and strange things you find with your camera.

Gocek is a place with beautiful and interesting architecture, and surrounded by beautiful scenery that mixes vibrant green landscapes with soft white beaches and beautiful blue sea. You are sure to encounter more than one photo opportunity while you are there, so it is vital to make sure you have a camera to hand if you don’t want to miss out.

Patara Beach
As many of the activities you can enjoy around Patara beach, such as snorkelling in the incredible blue cave, involve a lot of water you must make sure you have somewhere safe to keep your camera when you can’t carry it. As long as this condition can be met, it is a fantastic place to bring your camera. Not only are there some stunning bits of scenery around, but if you are lucky and have a decent zoom lens you may also be able to snap turtles and dolphins swimming offshore.
