St Peters Castle Bodrum, Turkey

7 DAY ITINERARY BODRUM, TURKEY - GREEK ISLANDS (DODECANESE) - BODRUM, TURKEY

Day 1: Bodrum,Yalikavak, or Turgatries - Kos    

Depending on weather conditions, M/S Turkish Delight can pick up a charter in either Bodrum, Yalikavak or Turgatries. All situated on the Bodrum Peninsula. From any one of these locations, Kos is within 2 hours and is the entry point into the Greek Islands as they have a Port Authority, Customs and Immigration office in the port. Also an ideal place to Purchase Duty Free Alcohol for the trip with a wide selection of European wines which are not available in Turkey.

Greek Fishing Village

Day 2: Kos- Kalymnos - Leros

From Kos, we will head north west towards Kalymnos where depending on the conditions, there are several locations to anchor and experience the local towns. Limin Kalimnos is the main port but we will most likely head for somewhere a little more tranquil with clearer water. Possibly Emborios at the north western tip of the Island.

From Kalymnos, It is aprox 1 hours sail to Leros. Here there are several harbors to anchor for the day or night including Xerokambos,Lakki, Partheni, Alindas or Alindas if there is space available in the Anchorage and the conditions are perfect.?


Sunrise in Patmos, Greece

Day 3: Leros - Patmos - Lipsos

From Leros, we sail up to Patmos. Here there are several pristine anchorages that are beautiful around the Southern coast. A very traditional Aegean style architecture in the main town of Skala Patmos. Other places to visit in Patmos are Livadha, Kambos, Yeoryios and Meloyi. ?

A short sail from Patmos is the island of Lipsos and the harbor of Sokora. The once very sleepy island has become more touristy in recent years but still maintains its typical feel and is a pleasant stop with a lovely coast line where we can stop in several small coves for lunch and a swim.??


Day 4: Lipsos - Arki - Agathonisi

Just to the North of Lipsos is the Island of Arki which is a wildlife reserve and is a protected area. Mammels like Dolphns, and monk seals can be seen when cruising around this island and if desired, a boat can stop for the night in the harbor of Port Augusta.

The most Northerly we will go on a seven day trip is the Island of Agathonisi . this island is very quiet with little tourism. Fishing is the main industry. There are a couple of lovely restaurants and bars in 2 or 3 of the overnight spots and some nice beaches. Small walks on the island always seem to pay off for the views. There are several surrounding islands which can reward visitors with some spectacular places to stop on the right day.

Day 5: Agathonisi - Didim 

From Agathonisi, We will sail downwind ( fishing all the way ) towards the bay of Gulluk on the North side of the Bodrum Peninsula. The next port of call would be Didim where we will clear customs. Here is an ancient ruin, the most intact temple in the world and the site of the first known oracle, estimated to be over 400 years older than the first oracle found in the Greek temple of Delphi.??Once cleared customs in Didim, We can sail into the Bay to one of several pristine Turkish anchorages including Paradise beach, the island of Altinada , and even down to Torba, Gumusluk, Turerkbukue and the Island of Salih but I would suggest a stop at the island of Catalada for the night.


Barbaros Bay, Turkey


Day 6: Didim - Bodrum - Barbaros Bay, Turkey

From any of the above location we will sail back to Bodrum and head directly to Barboras bay where the 5 star hotel “ Kempinski” awaits us with its beautiful Spa where all of our guests will be treated to a complimentary day pass. This should not be missed !??In the evening we will sail back to Bodrum ( 1 hour ) and anchor off the beach or in front of a 640 year old castle ( in pristine condition), which was built by the nights of the round table. Guests can spend the evening or afternoon walking the streets of Bodrum and experience the modern day version of an ancient trading post. The delights of Bodrum are endless and if the guests are up for a night out, there are dozens of bars, clubs and excellent resturaunts to keep them going until the early hours of the last day on board. 

 

Day 7: Bodrum, Turkey

Breakfast on board M/S Turkish Delight followed by a walk on the beach, shopping, or just relaxing on the boat.  Noon departure from Bodrum harbour, which is located 30 minutes from the Mugla International Airport.
