Bodrum to Gokova & Hisaronu Blue Cruise Itinerary

Day 1Bodrum

We’re leaving Bodrum to start the trip with something exciting, so we’re going to the Gulf of Hisaronu and then to Kos. It can be a great way to get excited about all the beautiful secrets that are still to come.

Think of Odysseus and look down into the clear blue sea as your boat sails over the horizon. It used to be Neptune’s yard, but now it is your pasture.

Day 2Orak Island & Çökertme

Orak Island

It is an island that is part of the district of Bodrum. It is in the eastern part of the district of Bodrum. It is about 16 kilometers away from Bodrum on average. It looks like a knife where the island ends. Because of this, Orak Island got its name from it.

As one of the most important blue cruise lines in Bodrum, it attracts tens of thousands of tourists from all over the world each year. It is also one of the first choices for people who know how to dive well. On the island, the sea is blue. It is called the Maldives of Bodrum because of this. It looks like glass at the bottom of the sea.

The sea is clear and has bays that look like aquariums. It is a good place to swim and dive. Because the water around the island is clean, it is easy to see the bottom of the sea. So, you can see the things that live in the sea.

It shows why Sickle Island is so popular with people who like to dive. Divers and people who come to this island with boats like how clean and clear the water is. Blue Tour guests and boats that go to Orak Island say you might see Caretta Caretta turtles there.

Çökertme

Bodrum is where boats and gulets start or end a blue tour. With its calm, the bay is a place where a person’s soul can rest. Since Çökertme Bay has been made a special protection zone, no building is allowed there.

This beauty also affects the visitors who come here with their boats and boat anchors to stay and take in the bay’s and beach’s beauty. As you soak up the sun on its beach, your soul can feel at peace. You could swim more easily in a calm, stable sea.

West and north of Çökertme Bay, there are two small beaches. The beach on the west side isn’t as deep. Its depth is between 5 and 15 meters. East of the bay, there is a beach with a pier next to it. From here, you can jump.

Mountains, a stunning sea, boats on the horizon, a single row of low-rise hostels, and on-land restaurants all surround the bay. We are not used to seeing places this quiet in our country.

When people go to Çökertme Bay, they tie up their boats to piers, get into the water in a calm and peaceful way, and enjoy the beautiful nature.

Day 3Long Port – Kufre Bay – Seven Island – English Harbor

Long Port

Long Port gets its name from the 130-meter-wide opening that leads into a bay that is even bigger. The place is known for how beautiful it is. A lot of people dock their boats in the bay or a cove to enjoy a quiet moment before setting sail again.

Kufre Bay

Kufre Bay is one of the bays that both local and foreign guests are interested in. It stands out because of its unique nature. Kufre Bay is a little piece of beauty where green and blue meet, surrounded by hills. It is the most beautiful place to have a natural harbor.

You’ll enjoy your vacation here, especially if you want to see a beautiful sunset. You can swim in a calm, blue sea and enjoy the gentle breeze.

Seven Island

In front of the southern coast, pine trees that lose their needles each year make a bay that is more than 2 miles wide. Between this island and the bays, there are many places to stop near trees that can be used in almost any weather. Mart Island is a desert island in the west.

On the east and south sides of the cape, there are beautiful beaches where you can get into the water. The other islands are small and long. They all have hills, but none of them have beaches. One of the most beautiful places to go scuba diving is there.

There is a lot of life underwater. Because of this, these islands are especially popular with people who like to dive. On top of that, you can sail on the islands or walk through pine-treed areas where you can see the beauty of nature.

English Harbor

In the Gulf of Gokova on the Bodrum-Datca Peninsula is a place called English Bay. It looks like a paradise with its lush pine woods. It is so protected that the rough Gulf of Gokova waves never reach here. Because of this, it is the safest place for blue-tour boats to stay.

The bay doesn’t change at all because of the weather. So, it is the best place to go if you want to spend your vacation by the sea and in nature because of its beautiful scenery. English Bay, which is also called English Harbour, got its name for a reason.

The bay is so safe that during the Second World War, a British Navy ship that got away from the German Navy could hide here for several months.

People who want to swim in the calm, turquoise-blue waves of English Bay can do so at any time of the year. Because of this, it should be the first place the Blue Trip goes to.

Day 4Karacasogut

Karacasogüt Bay is where pine woods and the sea come together. A beautiful place. Pine forests cover the hills and mountains all around. Karacasogüt Bay also has a small marina, a small pier that can hold up to 15 yachts, a sailing school, a diner, and a market.

On the paths in wooded areas, you can walk through nature or go exploring.

Day 5Longoz Bay (Kargili)

We set sail for Longoz (Kargili) Bay, another paradise-like place with pine trees, where we had lunch. Kargili Bay is known for how peaceful it is. It has fir trees right next to the water, and the bay is protected, so the water is calm.

It’s as quiet as you want; it’s a great place to go, relax, and watch the day go by as the boat gently rocks back and forth. We’re going to anchor in Balli Su for dinner and the night.

Day 6Tuzla Bay

Tuzla Bay, which is in the Gulf of Gokova and has a beautiful view of the sea, is one of the best places in the area to get into the water and go on a blue trip among the decks. From west to east, the 2.5-mile-wide bay runs along a beautiful coast.

At Tuzla Bay, you can enjoy the clean sea, watch the sunset over the water, and get away from the noise of the city on a blue ride. In the middle of Tuzla Bay, there is an island that is one of the most popular places for boat tours to stop.

Anyone who takes a blue boat tour to these bays can see these islands and enjoy this beautiful bay by swimming in different ways. Along with boat trips, you can also do a number of other things.

During the boat tour, you can listen to and dance to different kinds of music and have a great time on the boats that are docked in this bay.

Day 7Knidos & Palamutbuku

Knidos (Cnidus)

Knidos was the most important city in ancient times for trade, art, and culture. At the point where the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean Sea meet is Knidos, the most modern city of its time. This is where they saw the first signs of democracy.

Dorians from the Aegean Islands mostly live on the Datca Peninsula, which is part of Caria. Knidos was built by the Dorians in Burgas on the Cape of Dalak, which is 2 km from the center of Datca.

Knidos B.C. 4 Around the middle of the century, it was moved 35 kilometers away to Tabby Cape, where its ruins can be found today. Changes in the seafaring trade were a big part of why this happened.

After this move, we talk about the city of Knidos. (Büyük Menderes Valley, Dalaman Stream, the Aegean Sea, and the area between Babada, Bozda, and Honaz Mountain in the West Pass are all part of Caria.) Most ships that go from the Mediterranean Sea to the Black Sea do so through Knidos.

When you think about how things were back then, Knidos was an important place for sailing ships to stop, restock, and buy trade goods. Because it has naturally protected ports, it is also a good place to go when the weather is bad.

Palamutbuku

It is inside the boundaries of the Datca district. It is 25 km from the center of the Datca district. Palamutbükü Coast is one of the beaches on Datca that is the longest.

It is also thought to be one of Datça’s most beautiful bays. The water in the sea is clear and clean. Most of the time, rocks cover the beach. Sea shoes are a good idea. Mask, snorkel, and pallet trio are suggested.

The boats stop at the Port of Palamutbuku, which is a short and beautiful walk away. By taking a boat tour here, you can see the nearby bays and other beautiful parts of nature. Sea tourists can feel safe at the port of Palamutbuku.

On the weekends, many people from Datca come here to eat at restaurants, sit on the beach, and go to the sea.

Day 8Aktur Bay & Bencik Bay

Aktur Bay

Aktur Bay is one of the bays in Datca, Turkey, where pine woods meet the sea. Datca, which has the most oxygen, is one of the most beautiful parts of our country. In recent years, it has been named one of the most beautiful bays in our country.

The bay would be your first choice, especially if you like to go on cruises. It has two beaches with blue flags. Aktur Bay is one of the bays in Datca where pine forests meet the sea. It is one of our country’s most beautiful places.

In recent years, it has been named one of the most beautiful bays in our country. Two beaches in the bay have blue flags, making them your first pick, especially if you like cruise vacations.

Bencik Bay

Between Gokova Bay and Hisaronu Bay is Bencik Bay, which has port decency. Because of this, it is a place where boat tours and long blue trips stop.

The dense pine forests that surround the bay give it protection from strong winds. This makes it one of the best places for boats to anchor for the night. Its woods go all the way to the sea, and the sea is calm enough to swim in for hours.

The view of Bencik Bay, where you can spend some of your most peaceful vacation time, is a beauty that you won’t forget. With its natural beauty, Bencik Bay lets you feel the calm and peaceful atmosphere of the Aegean all the way down to your bones.

Day 9Emel Sayin Bay – Orhaniye Bay – Selimiye Bay

Emel Sayin Bay

Mugla has a lot of natural beauty, and Emel Sayin Bay is one of the places where green and blue meet. Its name also comes from Emel Sayin, who spends her vacations in Datca every year and sings songs at the Datca Almond Festival.

Thousands of local and international tourists visit the bay each year, making it one of Marmaris’ most well-known bays.

Orhaniye Bay

Orhaniye looks like heaven because of its beautiful nature and wide view of pine woods. Orhaniye is known for its castle and old ruins, so people who want to see nature, the sea, and history often go there.

The port of Hisaronu Bay in Orhaniye is one of the most important places for yachts to stay. This is where blue tour boats on the Marmaris-Mugla Route stay the night. Activities in the area give tourists a unique way to spend their vacation time.

Orhaniye resembles a lake with mountains on all sides. It is a quiet place to get away from the noise of the city.

Selimiye Bay

Selimiye Bay has everything you could want in a vacation spot: a beach, the sea, the ruins of the old city of Hydas, other bays, and islands. Even though there aren’t a lot of big beaches in Green Bay, the water is clear and clean enough.

This secret paradise is on the peninsula of Bozburun. Yacht tourism makes it stand out. At the same time, blue cruise ships like to spend the night in Selimiye. There are many old towns and castle ruins that history buffs like to visit.

History fans can also check out the Hellenistic city walls, the Fener church, and the remains of the old theater in Selimiye.

Day 10Bozburun

The Bozburun Peninsula is known for yacht travel and shipyards for gulets. Here, handmade gulets are made in the traditional way.

Day 11Dirsekbuku

Dirsekbükü Bay is a safe bay southwest of Hisaronu Bay that is linked to Marmaris. Dirsekbükü is just south of the tip of the pen.

It looks like a boot with a hole in the middle that goes west. No matter what the weather is like, Dirsekbükü Bay is almost always the most protected bay in the area. But you have to be able to breathe in strong north winds.

Dirsekbükü Bay has no way in or out, and it’s such a new place that the sand at the bottom of the bay is the only thing there.

Boats go there because of the water, how clean the sea is, and how safe it is. It is a route that blue cruise boats, in particular, have to take.

On the south side of Dirsekbükü Bay, there is now a beach called Recess Beach. Most of the time, fishing boats and boats with people who make village bread stop here. This place is beautiful and very safe.

At the end of the bay, there is a building, and in front of the building is a dock. The south side of this dock fell apart and sank into the water. On the dock, from the side of a stone bread oven to a diner built on the edge of a mountain that overlooks the bay but doesn’t have power, roads, or water, the picture is great.

This place is very popular because of its bay bottom shape, maquis hills, and fresh air. You can take a vacation and relax in this bay, where the water is also calm.
