Turkey is regarded as one of the most romantic yachting destinations in the world. Hospitable and charming, it certainly lives up to that claim. Whether you are an art and history buff, an archaeology nut or a nature lover, enjoy browsing through markets or going diving, the different regions of Turkey offer endless possibilities all year round. Each area has its own personality, history, landscape and even cuisine, and with so much on offer to visitors it is not surprising that one trip to Turkey is never enough. Surrounded by four different seas, Turkey is a beach paradise with over 8000 km of sunny strips of sand. It also has an abundance of plant and wildlife species that can be enjoyed while camping or trekking in the many national parks which are dotted around the country. Home to more than 20 different fascinating civilizations, Turkey has a 10,000 year-old heritage, much of which is still being uncovered. Its rich history is very much part of the present, with temples, ancient theatres, churches, mosques, tombs, statues of gods, palaces and fortresses, and of course the many detailed and fascination museums which bring the past to life. And of course in cities like Istanbul, there is a modern, lively ambience of contemporary society living alongside tradition, where art and music can be enjoyed whether it belongs to today or yesteryear. If one were to claim that the most scenic vistas in Anatolia can be found on the coasts of the Aegean, he could not be accused of exaggerating. In the words of Herodotus, the Aegean coasts "have the most beautiful sky and the best climate in the world." The bays and peninsulas, coves and golden beaches stretch the length of these beautiful shores. In this region where the countless events of mythology took place, at almost every turn, you will encounter the theaters, temples and agoras of ancient cities. An essential element of the Greek tourism product peculiarity is the island phenomenon. A total of 227 inhabited islands (of which 164 are washed by the Aegean Sea) are part of the Greek territory. Still, only 78 islands have more than 100 inhabitants (1991 Greek National Statistical Service Census). 59.9% of the whole country's hotel units, 62.2% of the available rooms and 62.2% of the hotel beds are concentrated on the Greek islands. Greece encompasses nearly 300 islands scattered across the Aegean and Ionian seas. The Ionian Sea offers the green fertile islands of Corfu and her sisters - sun dappled islands with wild flowers and olive trees. The Aegean reveals the island groups of Cyclades, Sporades and Dodecanese, of which the Cyclades are the most popular, being most accessible to Athens. The waters and shores of Greece, with the many comparative advantages they offer, have made yachting a highly popular activity in the country, both to the permanent residents and to the foreign visitors. Greece, with its emerald seas and spectacular coastline, countless idyllic and protected bays and coves is a sailor's paradise.
