The best way to explore the Turkish coastline is by boat. Leave the hordes behind and take to the seas in a private gulet luxury yacht.

The majority of coves and inlets in the Aegean Sea and along the Mediterranean Coast are only accessible by sea, meaning the crowds don't reach them. Swap public for private and leave the masses on the mainland in search of hidden coves, secluded beaches and complete peace and quiet.

The majority of gulets sleep up to 12 people, making them ideal for families or groups of friends. Fully crewed and extremely comfortable, they are in essence a moving boutique hotel, minus the noisy neighbours. The food is delicious and many have modern luxuries such as WiFi and plasma screen tellys.

Pit stops are made often to allow guests to swim and snorkel in the crystal clear waters, explore secluded coves and ancient temples, or to simply take in the stunning surroundings from the deck of the boat. Sunbathing is a hobby too, after all.

Depending on your embarkation point, there are also fascinating historic towns to explore such as Bodrum and Fethiye.
