BODRUM - GULF OF GOKOVA - BODRUM

Starting from Bodrum a gulet cruise can take you into the turquoise blue expanses of the Gulf of Gokova for a week or more of complete relaxation. Pine covered slopes drop down to quiet bays and small sandy beaches where the only inhabitants are honey bees, goats and the odd fisherman. At the head of the Gulf, in Sogut and Ingiliz Limani, there are a few rustic bars and restaurants, but even here the pace of life is slow and the atmosphere tranquil. The ancients must have felt it too as Anthony and Cleopatra supposedly fell in love on Sedir Island where the sand, unique to the area, was shipped especially from North Africa. There are no obvious historical sites in this gulf but if you stroll ashore you will come across unexpected ruins dating from before Christ and up to the Byzantine Empire. The water is clean and perfect for swimming, the views en route are incredible, and the food you will be served on board truly mouthwatering; a week winding down and spending time with friends or family in these stunning surroundings is truly rejuvenating.

Generally our gulet cruises last 7 or 14 days, but in low season we may be able to offer 4, 5, 8 or 10 days. Please enquire for details.
