Bodrum 7 Day Sailing Itinerary
Day 1 – Bodrum
Bodrum is a lively town with a repudation for lively nightlife. Although that reputation is deserved you’ll also find a centre with maze like streets and immense numbers of shops to look around. There is also a wide range of restaurants catering to most tastes. One of the best happens to be only 5 minutes from the marina.
Day 2 – Cnidus
Cnidus is an ancient city and was one of the most fabled and prosperous of its time. You’ll still find a plethora of ruins which are worth looking around and give a real feel of what the city once was. Now you’ll find a popular restaurant with a quay that can cater for up to 14 yachts at a time.
Day 3 – Yedi Adalari
Yedi Adalari are a group of small islands creating some protection from the prevailing winds and swell. There are several anchorages but we’d recommend Amazon creek. Here you’ll find shallower depths and heavily wooded hillsides. There are no restaurants here so you will be eating on the yacht.
Day 4 – English Harbour
English harbour was given its name due to a small number of Royal Marine commandos who worked from the quiet and secluded bay during World War II. There are no remains of any buildings but it’s alleged that many attacks were made against the Dodecanese islands. There are no restaurants here but across in the main bay there are two lodged between the tree lined coastline.
Day 5 – Akbuk
The village of Akbuk is a true Turkish resort with locals from Istanbul and Ankara visiting frequently. The ridge of mountains to the north tower of the village as you approach. Once you’ve arrived you’ll find two good restaurants with jetties.
Day 6 – Cokertme
Cokertme village is nestled within a large bay offering good shelter from the prevailing winds. Again there are two very good restaurants with pontoons for visiting yachts. You’ll find a wider selection of facilities including showers, toilets, internet and mini markets. If you’re feeling too hot you could also book into one of the air-conditioned rooms for the night.
Day 7 – Bodrum
If you’re looking for a good night out for your last night on holiday then Bodrum has got it covered. A wide range of bars and clubs are scattered around the town. Alternatively you could head into the centre of the town and explore the quiet twisting streets whilst doing a bit of souvenir shopping.
