We choose the most preferred Bodrum itinerary in 2024 based on the feedback of our guests ! Bodrum has recently emerged as one of the most popular travel destinations. It is one of the costliest vacation spots in Turkey and has become one of the most popular embarkation-disembarkation sites for blue voyage enthusiasts who want to visit Bodrum as well as swim in the pleasantly calm waters surrounding it. Below is one of the most popular routes in this lovely city, which combines natural beauty, entertainment, history, and luxury.
In this post, we will offer our most essential tips as yacht charter brokers and operators with people looking to relax and rejuvenate while still experiencing the thrill of visiting true luxury destinations along the coast.
Mirya Yachting frequently receives requests for gulet charters in Turkey. It can be difficult for first-time visitors to the shore to decide where to cruise and rent a boat. Guests are often ready to avoid busy areas while also wanting to visit attractive restaurants numerous times throughout a gulet charter week or see an intriguing historical location. We enjoy learning about our clients’ wants and needs. As a result, we decided to share more than just the schedule, which incorporates various activities to suit the mood of the passengers. It also regarded as one of Turkey’s most elegant sailing routes.
Day 1: Bodrum
In Bodrum harbor, board the yacht and have a welcome cocktail served by your crew. After the embarkation procedure completed, proceed to Kara Ada or Tavsan Burnu Bay. Both are located close outside of the town of Bodrum. This area provides a peaceful and secluded setting for a late afternoon lunch or dinner. It is feasible to return to Bodrum Harbour for the night, especially if the group wants to appreciate Bodrum by night, going through the bazaar and having chat with locals at a cafe. You might also spend the night in Aquarium Bay, which is known for its untouched beauty and crystal-clear blue sea.
Day 2: Knidos
Knidos is certainly a remarkable sight; the sunset and sunrise are both unique. You will find calm on your boat in this lovely location, especially with its panoramic view, and you will feel the history of the gulet you hired in your bones.
Take a tender ashore at Knidos to examine the ruins of the once-thriving commercial town. Knidos contains two theaters, the biggest of which can seat 20,000 people, multiple temples, and the acropolis. Take in the view from above the destroyed circular temple of Aphrodite – a center of worship that once drew thousands of worshipers, allowing you to admire Praxiteles’ naked statue of Aphrodite.
Day 3: Hotel D Maris Bay
The D Maris Bay Hotel ranks as one of the most opulent premium hotels on Turkey. Yachts of all sizes anchor in front of the hotel during the summer. One of the hotel’s decks has a breathtaking view of Hisaronu Bay and its white sand beaches. If the hotel’s policy allows, you can visit one of the sandy beaches, the La Guerite restaurant, the Nusr-Et restaurant, Zuma’s Japanese food, or Manos’ Greek cuisine. In Manos, you can attend Greek nights, dance on the back, and break plates. That’s a lot of fun:)
Day 4: Returning to the Bodrum
On the route back to the Bodrum Peninsula, this day includes stops in hidden bays. You allowed to swim in the crystal blue waters, participate in water sports, and sunbathe. It is an ideal strategy for a mid-week gulet charter to rest the body and mind.
Day 5: Yalikavak
Yalikavak is synonymous with luxury. Take in the sights and sounds of this bustling little hamlet, which recognized for its historical little center, an outstanding marina that welcomes the most expensive boats, world-famous restaurants, and boutiques, and a world class marina that accommodates the costliest yachts. There are also numerous popular beach clubs in Yalikavak where you can have fun with your group. The nightlife is also a draw for visitors. As an alternative, take a brief walk to the little beach and shop in some of the area’s intriguing local businesses.
Day 6: – Gumusluk
Gumusluk, a lovely tiny village on the Bodrum peninsula, is one of the most popular sites for wonderful seafood. During summertime, the bay in front of Gumusluk filled with yachts bringing people to enjoy delicious fish and Turkish meze. Restaurants are modest and intimate, with friendly locals dishing up their best dishes. Spend some time going along the beach and seeing how residents go about their daily lives amid the decorations of whitewashed buildings and blossoming bougainvillea. You can also walk to visit the historic ruins of a small Carian village constructed in the fourth century BC by Mausolus.
Day 7: Bodrum’s Features
Enjoy gorgeous bays on the journey from Gumusluk to Bodrum on this day. Make a pit stop at Akvaryum Bay and then visit Buddha Bar at Caresse Hotel. In the afternoon, take a visit to Bodrum. We recommend that you spend time in Bodrum before disembarking, as this town merits special attention. Particularly if you had not seen it before to boarding your yacht.
White-washed cottages with vibrant bougainvillea adorn the sides of low, sloping hills that lead down to the port. On a rocky promontory overlooking the marina, a majestic Crusader’s Castle stands strong. This is the heart of Bodrum, where visitors come to experience the town’s famous nightlife as well as its outstanding history.
Day 8: Disembarkation in Bodrum
Depart from the boat after a great breakfast cooked by our chef.
If you desire, we can arrange for a private transfer vehicle to take you to your destination.
