ClubSolos is taking to the beautiful waters along the Turkish coast. Join us on a small-gulet sailing experience of discovery along the glorious coastline between Fethiye and Kekova. This region is home to many small islands, extensive caves, an abundance of sea life and secluded coves backed by sheer cliffs and rugged hills, many of which can only be accessed by sea. This simple, traditional style of sailing is the perfect way to spend a week with your fellow Solos guests.
We arrive in to Dalaman airport and transfer to our gulet in the harbour of Fethiye, the meeting point of the Aegean and Mediterranean Sea. After check in, an orientation and safety briefing with our Tour Leader and crew we will enjoy our welcome drink and first evening meal together.
After breakfast we set off along the Fethiye Peninsula where we stop for lunch in a secluded bay. If sea conditions permit, we will sail to Butterfly Valley & Olu Deniz for a visit and swim. Overnight is spent at Saint Nicholas İsland, where you can
explore the ruins of a Byzantine settlement as the sun sets.
Today we make an early start for Yesilkoy, where we have breakfast and time to swim in this quiet bay surrounded by olive groves. Then it’s off to Kas, a small harbour town with a charming bohemian atmosphere, where we’ll spend the night.
Today we take a short cruise along the coast to the ruins at Kekova – the Sunken City. We have the opportunity for a swim and lunch at Tersane Bay where we can see the ruins of a Byzantine church and a Roman dockyard on the beach. We then sail on to to Gokkaya to spend the night.
Today we have the opportunity to climb up to the castle on Simena where we will experience spectacular views of the ancient city. From here you will see, carved into the rock, a single Lycian sarcophagus that sits on its pedestal in the water.
The night is then spent in the wide bay surrounded by green hills, at nearby Ucagız.
After breakfast we take a short cruise to the sheltered bay at Bayindır where we stop for a swim. The rest of the day is spent in Kalkan, a picturesque harbour town set on the hillside, where you can explore the cobbled winding streets or take an optional
trip to nearby Patara Beach or the ruins at Xanthos and Letoon.
After an early start to Camli Burun, a natural bay edged with pine-clad hills, where we have an opportunity for a final day of relaxing and swimming.
