With over a million British visitors each and every year, it isn’t difficult to see why Turkey remains the destination of choice for many holiday-makers. Whether you are hoping to enjoy a taste of traditional culture or wanting to witness some of the country’s spectacular views, choosing a sailing holiday to Turkey is one of the best ways to make the most of this ever-popular location.
Turkey vacation - Snorkelling and diving
Situated in the south of the country, Kas is the perfect place for thrill-seekers to stop off and enjoy some exhilarating high-octane sports. Known as a centre of excellence when it comes to mountain biking, kayaking and a range of other activities, the area offers experiences you will struggle to forget.

Of course, being on a boat, you may wish to undertake the more sedate but equally enjoyable activities of swimming and diving in Turkey’s crystalline blue seas. These tranquil waters play a large part in the country’s popularity with sun-seekers, as do the golden beaches on their shores. With much of Turkey’s beaches relatively untouched, it’s easy to while away the day taking in the picture-perfect scenery.

Such a surge in tourism has, of course, changed the infrastructure of Turkey in many ways, but often this is to the benefit of those visiting the country. A sailing holiday here will prove that there is still much to discover about this hugely popular destination.
