If you are considering hiring a gulet style vessel through www.Goolets.com to explore Turkey from the sea it would prove a very good idea. But with so many places to visit which ones should you really consider visiting initially.

Below we take a look at some of the places we feel are really worth visiting when you arrange such a holiday for this coming summer.

1. Bodrum has retained very much of its ancient charm even though it has become one of the most popular places in all of Turkey for tourists to visit. Spend a little time during the day visiting the castle and haggling over some gifts in the bazaar. Then arrange to stay overnight on the gulet and enjoy all that the city has to offer in the evening.

2. Marmaris has grown over the past few years from a small village into a very nice city. There are plenty of wonderful restaurants located in this city that offer a wide array of different local delicacies, include a few close to the sea. Again like Bodrum why not arrange to stay in its port so you can explore all that Marmaris has to offer including some really great bars.

3. Butterfly Walley is only accessible by sea and is situated two miles from Olu Deniz. Along with being able to relax in a spot that is very secluded you have the opportunity to view over one hundred kinds of butterflies.

4. Located eight nautical miles off from Ildir you will find the fjord town of Dalyan. Here you have an opportunity to actually explore and learn more about Turkey’s history. This is because there are remains and other historical artefacts to be viewed that date from the times when the Roman’s and Byzantines chose to make this part of Turkey their home.
