Turkey’s Turquoise Coast is best discovered by boat. Visit ancient ruins, white-sand beaches, numerous islands, and more. Fethiye is an ideal starting point for so-called 'blue cruises' with its lovely natural harbour and proximity to numerous islands. Most itineraries include trips aboard a gulet (a traditional wooden yacht). The 12 Islands—a scattered island group located in Gocek Bay—is one of the most popular destinations for day trips. Tours typically comprise multiple island stop-offs, plus swimming and snorkelling opportunities.
