CRUISE BY THE LICIA COAST

Lycian coast schooner in Turkey

The so-called “Lycian coast”, for that ancient civilization, stretches across the Turkish Aegean, between Bodrum, Marmaris, Fethiye and Antalya, often also called Turquoise Coast or Turkish Riviera, and constitutes one of the best places for on-board vacations of a sailboat.
