A Week of Superyacht Bliss on a Turquoise Coast Yacht Charter Vacation

Written by Eva Belanyiova

Who wouldn’t be drawn to a place that boasts the name the Turquoise Coast? This stunning stretch of coastline will take you through the rare gems of Turkey, a place where the west and the east seem to collide in delectable fashion. Imagine water the colour of topaz, sand the perfect shade of honey and vivid little towns boasting bazaars filled with treasures, mezze platters laden with figs and minarets and domes adorning the horizon.

Charter Yacht Starfire shows you a world of Turkish treasures and charm with a superyacht adventure along the golden gaze of the Turquoise Coast. Imagine sipping an exotic cocktail on board as you glide through the baby blue waters of Bodrum, imagine stepping ashore in Istanbul to be pulled down into the maze of streets seeking spice and imagine spending the day in Fetiye being scrubbed in a traditional Turkish Hamam before returning for a feast of kings back in the delectable dining room of your own plush superyacht.

Day 1 – Gocek

Kayak Emerald Islands

Start your motor yacht Starfire adventure with a steaming cup of sweet mint tea on the deck as you sail into the azure hues of Gocek. Superyachts are strung like diamonds across the velvet sapphire sea and the only way to explore is to take a kayak and paddle out to the slips of dreamy green islands that surround the picturesque port. Witness your first Turkish sunset with a dazzling supper soiree and watch the lights of this pretty town glitter against the darkening skies.

Day 2 – Fethiye

Silver Trinkets and Turkish Scrubs

Sail into the fishing delight of soft lit Fethiye and after a bright morning swim diving off from the deck of MY Starfire you can explore the town. Pick out from fresh seafood from the market for your personal chef to cook for supper. Shop for silver chessboards, glass lanterns and ornate ceramics before hiking the emerald draped hills to see the ruins of the Knights of Rhodes. This afternoon you can enjoy a rich foaming scrub in a traditional Hamam before slipping back on board My Starfire for a tranquil night of cocktails and relaxing in front of the open air cinema.

Day 3 – Kekova

Discover a Sunken City

As Starfire superyacht seamlessly slides through the hues of blue you will have no idea that beneath the hull there is a sunken city waiting to be explored. Kekova is a diver’s paradise and with your superyacht having all the equipment you need you can dive into the welcoming arms of the water for an epic journey. Back on dry land and you can wander through the scattered ancient Lycian settlements, linger in the tight knit winding streets and lap at the dreamiest creamiest ice cream cones you could ever hope to find.

Day 4 – Oludeniz

Paraglide Over the Blue Lagoon

Blue lagoons, lush mountain slopes and the rainbow sails of paragliders drifting overhead, this morning you will be welcomed to the paradise shores of Oludeniz. Spend the morning swimming and snorkeling from the anchor point of MY Starfire before taking the plunge off the mountain later this afternoon and discovering the Blue Lagoon from a bird’s eye vantage point. Still shaking from the wild dose of adrenaline the crew of luxury yacht Starfire will welcome you back to earth with a stiff drink to enjoy in the pristine beauty of the sundeck.

Day 5 – Bozburun

Honey and Pines

Olive groves, tangled vineyards, beehives and natural beauty – this is what is waiting for you on the shores of Bozburun. Those seeking a true taste of Turkey will fall in love the second they lay eyes on this sleepy coastal village. Start the day embracing tradition as you sip dark sweet Turkish coffee on the sundeck and pick at your honey soaked baklava. Read a book on the creamy soft sun lounger and watch the locals pass with a smile as they head for deeper waters to fish. In the pale light of the afternoon you can wander the ancient ruins and Grecian pillars strewn around the hillside and stop to barter with the old women selling honey amongst the pines. Finish the day with a starlight tender to the Turtle Beach of Dalyan where you can watch the mamas hatch their eggs beneath a full round milky moon.

Day 6 – Bodrum

Ancient Wonders and Waltzing Nights

Elegant, glitzy and adorned in white wash villas and the sweep of bougainvillea you are sure to be seduced by Bodrum. This is the perfect place to step ashore and soak up the riches and wonders of Turkey’s ancient wonder. Take a morning trip to see the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and the Temple of Artemis in Ephesus before cooling off with a swim in the crystal clear blue waters that surround the coast. After a delectable dinner on board you can prepare for a night on the town, when the sun goes down, Bodrum turns up the heat with international DJs and an evocative club scene that can last until the first light of dawn.
