There is much to admire about the country of Turkey, but one of its most remarkable claims to fame is that it straddles two continents. With some parts of the country in Asia and other sections in Europe, Turkey’s fascinating geography is symptomatic of the exciting mix of culture and history on show throughout the country.

Istanbul itself sits in the smaller European portion of Turkey, and it is here that visitors can get a real sense of the happy meeting of East and West that the country is so proud of. There is a never-ending list of things to do and see in the city, and although it is a busy and bustling place, there are chances to relax too.

But if you want to see the true beauty of the country’s landscape, sailing Turkey’s stunning shoreline is the best way to go. With picture-perfect beaches, lush coverings of pine trees and dramatic mountain skylines, there is plenty to please the eye on a sailing holiday in this region. And with its role as the “bridge” which joins Europe and Asia, Turkey offers something truly special for even the most seasoned holiday goer.
