Where to sail to from Bodrum?
When it comes to sailing, Bodrum is an ideal starting point. You can head north towards Izmir, or east towards Fethiye and Marmaris. And remember, your sailing routes are not limited to Turkey… also consider sailing to the Greek Islands of Rhodes, Symi, and Kos.
Important! If you are planning to sail to Greece, make you have the proper border documents before arriving at a Greek port. Sometimes this process can take a long time, so it’s better to have your documents prepared and completed about two weeks before your trip.

- Simi: A small Greek island with houses painted in bright summer colors, which also happens to be close to the Turkish coast.
- Kara-Ada: This is a special Turkish destination, as it was named the “Black Islands” due to the color of sand. It’s ideal for navigating between islands. Check-out Turguteis Beach and Camel Beach.
