Yacht Charter Orhaniye

Orhaniye is where you can see people who appear to be walking on the water, not a miracle but a spit of sand running out into the bay! Cafes and restaurants provide the perfect setting for a lazy day on the beach.

Knidos Yacht Charter

At the extreme western tip of the Datça peninsula sits Knidos (Cnidos) a city founded on Mediterranean trade in the 5th Century BC. Now almost deserted there is a perfectly protected small harbour whose history leaves the visitor reflecting upon the thousands of people who dwelt here in antiquity, in modernity there are just a handful of residents. Ruins of temples, statues and an imposing amphitheatre are just a short walk away.

Consider A Luxury East Mediterranean Yachting Holiday For Your Honeymoon

Your honeymoon is perhaps the most special trip you will ever take. Traditionally occurring immediately after a wedding, it’s when you and your partner will have a wonderful chance to relax as a married couple for the first time, recuperating after the stress of organising their wedding day, and spending plenty of quality time together.

For many couples, their honeymoon is an opportunity to push the boat out (no pun intended) and opt for a luxurious holiday that they might not otherwise take. Yachting holidays offer the perfect escape for newlyweds – they guarantee true relaxation and luxury, as well as giving couples the chance to see various different cities and destinations, rather than being confined to one. Hiring a crewed yacht also gives a sense of privacy that is rarely available when staying in hotels or other resorts.

Sailing around the eastern Mediterranean on your own private yacht is an increasingly popular option for honeymooners. Here are just a few of the sights and cities you’ll be able to see on your trip:

Greek islands

The stunning Greek islands are an enduringly popular honeymoon destination – but why limit yourself to just one island? With a crewed yacht charter, you can explore a cluster of Greece’s most beautiful islands, from the Southern Cyclades (where you’ll find the picturesque isles of Santorini and Milos), to the Ionian islands (where you can enjoy the wonders of Corfu, Paxos and Zakynthos). Think sun-kissed beaches, warm Greek hospitality and spectacular sunsets from your yacht every night.

Turkey

You’ll find a multitude of perfect moorings in Turkey, and the wonderful climate means it’s a fantastic honeymoon destination at any time of the year. From party capital Marmaris, where you can join in the vibrant nightlife, to the beautiful cities of Antalya and Bodrum, you’re sure to find a relaxing haven in Turkey.

Montenegro

If culture and exploration is what you’re looking for on your honeymoon, Montenegro is the ideal choice. With stunning natural parks just inland, as well as two famous UNESCO World Heritage Sites and a plethora of engaging museums about Balkan history, this small country packs a punch in terms of cultural wonders. For those down days when you’re not hiking in the hills or exploring a museum, relax on one of the many pristine beaches, or enjoy the luxurious surroundings of Porto Montenegro, one of the world’s top marinas.

Croatia

The gems in Croatia’s crown are all situated along the coast, making it perfect for a yachting honeymoon. From the beautiful walled city of Dubrovnik to the hip and vibrant city of Split, you’ll find a scene to suit you. Not to mention the cluster of beautiful, isolated islands for those days when seclusion and privacy is at the top of the agenda.

Kalekoy Yacht Charter

Kalekoy, within the Kekova region, is home to the ruinous underwater city of Simena. Here submerged sarcophagi can be found amongst the remains of various buildings. Overlooked by the castle of the Knights of Rhodes with its small theatre and necropolis this tiny photogenic village exceeds all expectations

Kaş Yacht Charter

Kaş a little further to the east looks out over the Greek Island of Megisti (Kastellorizo locally) a mere 2½ miles distant. The town takes life at a leisurely pace and possesses a charm all of its own, mainly unsullied by mass tourism yet popular among the more discerning tourist Kaş seems to have the balance just right.

Kaputas Yacht Charter

The beach at Kaputas can be a worthwhile visit to enjoy the fine yellow sand and gently breaking sea.

Patara Yacht Charter

At 7½ miles (12 km) from end to end Patara beach ranks high on the list of the worlds beaches, not only for length but also for quality. Unspoilt by tourist development and home to the ruins of ancient Patara city, just landward of the beach, the whole area is a tableau of natural and historic beauty.

Nearby Kalkan is a little secret well kept from the casual tourist. This small historic town stretches up the hillside via winding streets eventually giving an impeccable view over the bay below.

Oludeniz Yacht Charter

Oludeniz or the Blue Lagoon in English has a literal translation of “Dead Sea” mainly due to the fact that it has calm water even in the severest of storms. Blue Lagoon is a rather more apt name referring directly to the colour of the water. Surrounded by wooded hillsides and under the protection of Mount Babadağ Oludeniz is a true picture postcard destination.

Gemiler Island Yacht Charter

Gemiler Island (the Island of Boats) plays host to a plethora of ruinous churches and houses from the Byzantine period, also known as St Nicholas Island because it is believed his tomb is amongst the many upon the island.

Fethiye Yacht Charter

The town of Fethiye is a great place to catch some more upbeat entertainment this popular holiday destination caters for the more energetic night owl with panache. The discos and bars however, don’t detract from the plentiful beaches, markets and restaurants which make a visit to Fethiye well worthwhile in their own right.
