From Istanbul, you’ll take a short flight to Dalaman international airport, which serves southwest Turkey, and meet your yacht. Marmaris is a tourist town extraordinaire. its marina waterfront features a long stretch of outdoor restaurants and its castle and the adjacent old Town are a worthy walk.
DAY 2 Marmaris - Ekincik
From the bustle of Marmaris, you’ll enter the serenity of Ekincik, which is in a nature conservation area. The Sultaniye Spas thermal baths are just a few minutes taxi ride from this small town’s waterfront. Your crew can take you by tender to Caunos on the Dalyan river to admire the ancient ruins and rupestrian tombs.
DAY 3 Ekincik - Fethiye
En route to Fethiye, a swim and lunch on Tersane island and a visit to Manastir (Cleopatra Bay) are a must.

DAY 5 Gocek - Kalkan
Kalkan is a delicious village scrambled up a hillside that is rich in flowers and restaurants. The town has taken special care to preserve its ottoman and Greek architecture. as a result, its old town and new development live in better harmony than in some coastal areas. You’ll overnight in the new Kas Marina 12 miles away.
DAY 6 Kalkan - Kekova
After enjoying the shops and steep streets of the picturesque fishing village of Kas, or the hellenistic theater ruin just outside town, board a local boat for a half-day visit to Kastellorizo, a splendid Greek village offshore. In the evening, cruise to Kekova.
DAY 7 Kekova
Visiting Kekova is astonishing. With local boats, you can explore the underwater ruins of an ancient city, admire tombs emerging from the sea and more. Or spend your day ashore in a colorful restaurant where you sit on Turkish carpets and sip Turkish coffee.
