Here are just a few of the popular Blue Cruise anchoring sites on the Turkish Turquoise Coast:

KALEKÖY/SIMENA

The Village of Kaleköy in the Kekova region was once home to the ancient city of Simena. The name translates to “Castle Village”. Today´s Kaleköy is home to a few pensions and cafes, situated on beautiful clear seawater with just one small dock. It lies among the ruiıns of a Lycian necropolis, now partially sunken, dating to the 2nd century AD. This village is accessible only on foot or by boat from Üçağız. At the top of the hill is the namesake castle, a remnant of Byzantine rule, built to hold the area against the pirates that frequented these shores.

DALYAN

The Town of Dalyan is an important departure point for tours to two world-famous destinations. The archaeological site at Kaunos features findings dating back to the 9th century BC. There is a great deal of well-preserved architechture in both Roman and Hellenistic styles. Also in the area is Caretta Caretta İztuzu beach. The Caretta Caretta turtles, also known as Loggerhead Sea Turtles, come this area every year to dig in and lay their eggs in the sand.

THE 12 ISLANDS

The Twelve Islands of the Fethiye Gulf are a must-see for any Blue Cruise. These lie just outside the circular harbour of Göcek. Most notable among these are Tersane Island and Kizilada (The Red Island) where the setting sun gives the earth a stunning crimson luminescence.

TERSANE ISLAND

Tersane Island is also known as Dockyard. It was once a stopping point for boats in need of repair. This is the largest of the twelve islands and there are many charming coves and bays around the perimeter. If you choose to make the hike to the top, the view is stunning.

HAMAM BAY

Hamam Bay or Cleopatra´s Baths is a popular stopping point on the Blue Cruise. Legend has it that Marc Antony made a gift of the Turkish Turquoise Coast to Cleopatra, and upon her arrival she swam in these waters. The beauty queens must be sure to swim here – perhaps the water still hold some benefifial magic!

BEDRI RAHMI BAY

Bedri Rahmi Bay is named for a famous Turkish painter and poet of the mid-20th century. During one of his Blue Voyages, Bedri Rahmi Eyöboğlu painted a fish on a large rock in this bay, and it still welcomes travelers into Tasyaka Cove, across from Tersane Island. This area of the Fethiye Gulf features hillsides covered in beautiful green pine forest and rock tombs, as well as the only spring of drinking water in the region.

AGA LIMANI BAY

Aga Limani Bay is a nice cove for swimming and offers the chance to be among ancient Byzantine ruins, including a road all the way to the top of the mountain.
