Blue cruising the Lycian Coast – high in value, low in cost!
One of the best ways to explore Turkey is to embark on journeys of the Lycian coast.

These cruises are done in old-world sailing boats that are popularly known as gulets. An ideal blue cruise could last anywhere between 3 – 7 days, depending on your respective itineraries.
Four days of Blue Cruising the Lycian Coast
The four-day itinerary that moves westwards and disembarks in Fethiye is considered to be one of the most perfect cruising options available for tourists. The first night is spent at the Fethiye Harbour itself. This night is considered to be as important to your cruising experience as the day, enjoying the best sunsets, watching light dance off the water and getting to know your fellow passengers.
The gulet itself is known to offer nothing amenities from home and is extremely comfortable. What makes these gulets so special is their wide selection of meals including meats, vegetables and enticing food. Even though the cabins are also known to be very spacious and extremely comfortable, the best places to sleep are in one of the terry cloth covered mattresses located on deck under the stars. The experience of sleeping under the stars is truly amazing.
