Bodrum Sailing Holidays & Yacht Vacations
Bodrum, the pearl of Mugla, has become a region that is now known worldwide. In this article, if you are planning a sailing holiday this summer in the Bodrum region, we will share our suggestions and experiences with you.
Choosing the Right Boat Type
Choosing the boat type according to your needs and the duration of your holiday is important. If you want to spend a comfortable sailing holiday, then you should plan your holiday with a gulet charter option. A shorter holiday and a bit of speed? Then it is a motor yacht. Sailing sport and adrenaline? Then we recommend either the compact and seaworthy sailboat or the comfortable and swift to a catamaran.
Determining the Route
The second most important issue in planning a yacht vacation is determining the route. You can find many alternative routes, including the Greek islands and the Bodrum area:
Bodrum – Hisaronu – Bodrum

Bodrum – Southern Dodecanese Islands – Bodrum
