Upon arriving in the coastal city of Bodrum, spend your afternoon and evening perusing the seaside shops, familiarizing yourself with Turkish culture and traditions, and dining along the water’s edge at one of dozens of outstanding restaurants. Bodrum is one of the Aegean Coast’s jewels, featuring natural beauty, ancient ruins, and a thriving nightlife.
In the morning, we will cruise to Sedir (Cedrae) island. This unique island with its small beach and unbelievably clear water is like an ooutdoor museum. You can see the city walls, the ruins from the Dors reign (later on restored as a church); the amphitheater with 1500 guest capacity and the domed historical buildings. You can walk around the wrecks of pillars with antique writings on them and see the ancient stones decorated with reliefs. Cleopatra Beach, located on this island has a very special kind of sand that can only be found in the deserts of Northern Africa. According to the myth, King Antonius had brought this sand from Egypt by sea for Cleopatra.
Later, we will cruise to English Harbor for dinner and overnight stay. The bay takes its name from World War I when the ships of the English Navy had taken refuge here. In this area, there are many small and large bays sheltered enough and suitable for overnight anchorage.
Awake with the sun and after a leisurely breakfast, we will spend the morning slowly meandering along the coast toward Cati Lagoon, where we will prepare lunch and take in the wondrous scenery. Swim in the pools of Cati or wander amongst the extensive natural beauty and ruins. The most quiet overnight waits for you in this marvelous natural harbor.
After a leisurely breakfast in the morning, it is time to say goodbye to your yacht and the crew as they will prepare the yacht for her next charter. We hope to show you more of the Aegean Coast next summer!
