Gulf Of Fethiye
The amazing beauties of Fethiye Bay can only be discovered with a gulet cruise.
The southwest coast of the Aegean is a wonder of taste, with coves, coves and islets, each of which exhibits its own unique beauties. Fethiye Bay is no exception.
Gulet charter and yacht vacations are synonymous with this area. Fethiye's natural harbour is known as one of the best in this region of the Mediterranean with its modern harbour and marina. Fethiye is a city and district of Muğla province. It is located on the eastern shores of the bay, which is protected by the pine-covered Taurus mountain range. The energy of the city is felt with its luxury bars and restaurants. At the same time, the town manages to maintain the feel of a local seaside Turkish village with its quaint shops and cafes.
Fethiye Bay is one of Turkey's most important cruise lines, as this coastline is mostly only accessible by boat. Turkey's Aegean coast is known as the birthplace of the blue voyage, which is essentially a sailing holiday with a gulet charter.
The Aegean Sea meets the Mediterranean and is surrounded by the Greek and Anatolian (Turkish) peninsulas. Turkey is a transcontinental country predominantly located on the Anatolian peninsula in Western Asia. A smaller part is in the Balkan peninsula in southeastern Europe.
Fethiye Bay was formerly known as Telmessos Bay, after the ancient city of Telmessos, where modern Fethiye sits today. The name of the city was changed to Fethiye in 1934 in honour of one of the first pilots who died while trying to complete the first flight from Istanbul to Cairo.
