Your dream vacation will become true during Blue Cruise Turkey with the best gulets, motor yachts, and sailing yachts. The journey starts in Bodrum and goes through to Marmaris via the amazing bays and coasts of the Aegean and the Mediterranean Sea.
During the day trip from Bodrum, you will visit those bays and coasts; Aquarium Bay, Knidos, Datca, Palamutbuku, Emel Sayin Bay, Orhaniye Bay, Selimiye Bay, Dirsekbuku, Bozburun, Bozukkale (Loryma), Serce Bay, Kadirga Harbor, Kumlubuk, Aquarium Bay, Star Island (Nimara), Marmaris.
Halicarnassus was the main city of the ancient Carian people. The place where students and sailors live The famous Carian king Mausolus built his tomb, which was called the Mausoleum and was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
All of the big tombs are now called the Mausoleum, which comes from the name of his tomb. But in Bodrum, only a small part of the tomb can be seen today. The best-preserved castle from the Middle Ages is in Bodrum.
It is now a museum and has an underwater museum with ships from the Aegean Sea. Bodrum is one of the most popular places for tourists to visit. The city is on the Aegean Sea and has many places to stay during the summer.
Aquarium Bay (Adabogazi)
Every boat in Bodrum goes to Aquarium Bay. Because the water is so clear, people who saw it at the time gave it the name “Aquarium Bay.”
Maybe it is so clear because there is no way to get here by land. Aquarium Bay is a popular spot for boat tours. It is made up of small bays at the western end of Gumbet and an island that makes a strait between them. Off the island, the bay widens to 30 meters, but you can still see the bottom.
It is a corner of paradise that hasn’t been touched. Swimming in a sea as clear as glass is a once-in-a-lifetime event that can’t be found anywhere else.
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. The Dorians constructed Knidos in Burgas, which is located on the Cape of Dalak and is 2 kilometers from Datca’s city center.
Knidos B.C. 4 Around the middle of the century, it was moved 35 kilometers away to Tabby Cape, where its ruins can still be seen 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 now go 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.
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. It has cold water, which is good for families with kids. 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.
Both the history and the natural beauty of ancient Datca make it stand out. Most houses are either one or two stories tall. Narrow streets made of cobblestones and balconies with bougainvillea hanging from them have created beautiful scenery.
These streets are a great place to take shots. Postcard pictures are shown. Most places have shops and stands where you can buy ornaments. You can see Datca’s show live if you find the women who made them famous. Here, you can buy gifts for your friends and family.
The majority of these items are handmade, and the village residents sell them.
Emel Sayin Bay
Emel Sayin Bay is one of Mula’s natural wonders, where blue and green come together. Its name also comes from Emel Sayin, who spends her vacations in Datca every year and sings songs at Datca’s Almond Festival.
Thousands of local and international tourists visit the bay each year, making it one of Marmaris’ most well-known bays.
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-Mula 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 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.
Dirsekbükü Bay is a safe bay southwest of Hisaronu Bay that is linked to Marmaris. Dirsekbükü is just south of the Cape of the Pen. It looks like a boot with a hole in the middle that goes west.
No matter what the weather is like, Elbekbükü 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 is so pure and has no way in or out. All of the sand at the bottom of Dirsekbükü Bay.
Boats go there because of the water, how clean the sea is, and how safe it is. It is a route that blue tour boats, in particular, have to take. On the south side of Dirsekbükü Bay, an indentation created a 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.
People like this place because of the shape of the bay bottom, the Maquis hills, and the fresh air. You can take a vacation and relax in this bay, where the water is also calm.
The Bozburun Peninsula is known for yacht travel and shipyards for gulets. Here, handmade gulets are made in the traditional way. There are safe bays in the town of Bozburun.
Because of this, the boats are kept in Bozburun during the winter so that they can be fixed and maintained. In the summer, boats go all the way around the Bozburun Peninsula.
People who want to see the bays around them will enjoy the yacht and boat tours that are offered in the area. The top half of the Bozburun Peninsula is made up of wooded mountains with steep hills that rise from bays that are protected from the wind.
In the south, there are more places that are dry and rocky. Most of the ruins in the south are under the ground. Half of the remains are castles that look out over hidden valleys and harbors.
A 45-minute walk away, on Asar Hill, you can find a small number of ruins from the old city of Larymna. It is perfect for hiking because of how it is built.
Trekking is a great way to see both the natural and historical parts of the area. On the outside are the city walls and a few gravestones.
The natural beauty and historical ruins of Bozukkale, which is southwest of Marmaris, make for a memorable vacation. Even though we have everything you need for a vacation, the area has different things to do during the day and night.
In the bays with clean beaches, you can swim as much as you want, and at night, you can have fun in the facilities nearby. Bozukkale Bay is the most important stop for Blue Cruise boats because it is protected from the wind and is where boats that go between Marmaris and Bodrum stay the night.
In the bays, where getting there by car is hard, three places only serve people who come by boat. The 120-meter-long, 10-meter-wide castle on the hill is the most important thing left of the old city of Loryma.
Since only a small part of the castle still stands, the area is called Bozukkale. On the northern side of the bay, at a hard-to-reach spot, there is another old castle.
Serce Port is one of the most popular places for Blue Tour boats to stop. It is at the end of the Bozburun Peninsula, and you can only get there by land. Since there are no towns nearby, the water in the port is very clear.
On the shore, there is a restaurant that only serves people from blue cruises, a few fishing boats, and the sea. And there is a cafe on the beach where you can take care of small things. Even though it’s not a very common bay, one that’s easy to get to from land and is quiet and peaceful is for you.
With the clarity of the water, the quiet of the shore, and the sight of fish moving at the bottom, you can have moments that will stay with you forever. You can make these moments last forever by taking a picture of them.
Since woods and mountains are on three sides of Kadirga Bay, it is mostly protected from the wind. The sea is also flat, but the beach is just a small rock. The freshwater source is mixed into the bay, which makes the water a little bit colder.
But the cold water in the Aegean feels like treatment when it is very hot. The clear, rocky sea is also a great place to swim. Under the sea, you can have fun swimming with bright fish. Because it is protected, blue cruise lines stop at Kadirga Bay, which is one of the places you should visit.
It’s so quiet in the bay that you might even see a cow. It is one of the most famous bays in Marmaris, thanks to its beautiful two-kilometer-long beach and sea. The fisheries in Kumlubük Bay are well known.
During the Blue Trip, if you stay here, you can eat your fish at night while looking out at the unique sea of Marmaris. Even though the town is big, the natural beauty is protected, and there are places to hike, bike, and play sports.
When you visit the bay, you should also see a rock that is thought to be about 500 years old. Kumlubük Bay is a great place to take shots of nature because it is peaceful, safe, and a natural wonder in its entirety.
Aquarium Bay is another name for Abdi Reis Bay. It is at the end of Marmaris. Because the water is so clean, the aquarium lives up to its name.
You can also go diving there. The bay is the most popular place for people who like to dive, and it has diving events and lessons going on all the time. Take a diving class in the bay, which has a beautiful underwater view and many different kinds of fish.
If you know what you’re doing, you can go on a long and fun diving trip. The bay near the Phosphorlu cave is busy with Marmaris boat trips and has a lot of sea traffic. People from all over the world visit the bay, which has been called “epic” in different languages.
The most beautiful place on the boat routes has sea-like sheets, lots of sun, fine sand, and unique views. The bay gives you great views both above and below the water.
Star Island (Nimara)
Nimara is in the district of Marmaris. Even though it is called an island, Marmaris Paradise Island is really a peninsula. Nimara Peninsula is the name of the peninsula where Paradise Island is.
Forests cover Paradise Island, which is right at the entrance to Marmaris Bay. One place worth seeing is Paradise Island, which has blue sea water and lots of green plants.
