Sailing south from Marmaris, guarded by the Greek island of Symi, is the Gulf of Hisaronu, which means Gulf of Fortresses, a reference to the many ancient and medieval forts scattered around the hills of the Gulf. Symi has the most beautiful harbour in Greece. On either side of a steep-sided fjord rise tier upon tier of houses, some white, some pastel yellow. Once, this was one of the most prosperous ports of Greece.
Rhodes – where past meets present. The oldest inhabited medieval city lies alongside in harmony with a refined modern resort. One of the most popular Mediterraneandestinations.
The ancient physician Hippocrates is thought to have been born on Kos, and in the center of the town is the Plane Tree of Hippocrates, a dream temple where the physician is traditionally supposed to have taught. The limbs of the now elderly tree are supported by scaffolding. Not only history but golden beaches.
Beautiful coastline, friendly people, good fresh foods and delicious local wines, that could easily compete against many Western European vineyards. The summer is long and good weather is virtually guaranteed between May and as late as end October.
Few countries in the world have such a cultural diversity as Turkey, Spanning over two continents combining the East, the West and the Orient of today with the ancient Byzantine, Ottoman, Roman and Persian empires. Turkey stands in a class of its own.
Marmaris was founded 6 centuries before Christ and until a few years ago, Marmaris was a small fishing port. It now hosts a beautiful Marina and Nightlife to compare with anything found in the region. Massive Cruise ships visit on a regular basis. It is set in pine clad hills surrounding a sheltered bay. We begin our trips here (Although this is flexible and dependant on your selected route.) and it is a beautiful place to visit.
Marmaris Castle was built in 1522 by the Ottoman sultan Süleyman the Magnificent when he had set out for his campaign on Rhodes, for which Marmaris served as a base. Lord Nelson and his entire fleet sheltered in the harbour in 1798, en route to Egypt to defeat Napoleon’s armada at the Battle of Aboukir. Dacta, being the largest village in the gulf of Hisaronu is an ideal place to provision between Marmaris and Bodrum, is well worth a visit as it is still relatively untouched by tourists and very picturesque.
At Dalyan you will find a white sand beach (Istuzu Beach) and a multitude of Loggerhead Sea Turtles, this beach is designated as a preservation area for that purpose. We can call Ali, our local boat operator to take you up close with the Turtles and upstream to the mud baths and the Lycian tombs carved in the rock face. Dalyan means “Fishing Weir” in Turkish, Bass, Mullet and Sea Bream swim upstream from the sea to Köyceğiz Lake where another large town of the region, Köyceğiz, is located. The fish spawn there, and when returning to the sea they are caught in the “dalyans”.
Moving further over to the east you will find Göcek, very much a Marina town, there are no high rise buildings but six Marinas. Around here you will find many coves and beaches where the opportunity to anchor and enjoy the pleasures of the natural surroundings.
Fethiye-Öludeniz offer history and one of the top five rated beaches in the world, Fetiye being a large city has been established as a significant city since the 5th Century BC, there is a great fish market and the most established museums of the country there are many opportunities to visit cultural sites as Caunos, Telmessos, Fethiye Museum, Tlos, Pınara, Letoon, Xanthos and Patara.
Heading west from Marmaris to the Datca Peninsula you will find the area pretty much unspoilt by mass tourism. There are many beautiful bays and coves alongside small towns and villages. Travel further on you will come to Bodrum, a more cosmopolitan town with a fortress as the city symbol. The Knights of Rhodes had it constructed in the year 1402, and it was reinforced with Italian, English, German and French towers. It was taken by the Turks in 1523, and it is used as an underwater museum today. The underwater section and the section of Princess Ada, are the sections which attract the greatest attention here.
