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