Day 1

Aktur

On your first day, you will meet the captain at the meeting point and be taken to the boat, check-in time is 16:00 pm you will then meet the rest of the crew and receive all information about the boat and the cruise. This 8-day cruise is all about relaxation and slowing down the pace of life, as you sail along the Datca peninsula an almost unspoilt coastline where it can feel as if time has stood still. Aktur Bay has a long sandy beach and here the pine forests meet the shore. This area is one of the best places for Turkey gulet holidays.

Day 2

Hurmalibuk – Bencik Bay

This first mornings cruise will take us to Hurmalibuk Bay, palm trees are rife here and the landscape is green and rocky with deep blue waters. We will share our first breakfast together then there will be plenty of time for you to swim and relax before moving onto Bencik Bay which sits at the narrowest part of the peninsula. In 550’s BC this area was populated by the Cnidos people who started to build a large tunnel to defend themselves against the Persians…..alas they were defeated.
