Sail away on Turkey's Blue Coast

Tuesday 21 January 2014

Relax and join a flotilla of wooden sailing boats on an all-inclusive Saga holiday

Unwind on an authentic gulet cruise, passing beautiful bays and golden beaches, on Turkey’s Mediterranean coast this summer.

Travel in a flotilla of up to three boats where life on board is friendly and relaxing, with the captain and two crew taking care of guests.

The gulets, two-mast wooden sailing boats, have been refined for holidaymakers’ comfort providing eight ensuite cabins and air-conditioning. The former fishing or sponge diving boats each have a different character and décor to make the sailing experience a totally unique.

Mealtimes are a special experience on this all-inclusive holiday. Guests can tuck into local produce, in Turkish meze style, while dining on the deck overlooking the sea. A free bar is open from 9am to midnight, serving local alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.

The round-trip from Marmaris via Ekincik Bay allows plenty of time to explore towns and villages or join walking tours. Of course, for those who would prefer to laze on the beaches, they will be spoilt for choice.

Previous passengers gave the overall holiday a 98% rating and a value for money rating of 99%.

Seven nights from £949 departing Gatwick from May to June and September and October

Price includes travel insurance and cancellation cover, return flights, full board, free bar open 15 hours a day, two excursions and a Saga tour manager
