8 Days / 7 Nights Marmarıs – Greek Islands
(MARMARIS – SYMI – RHODES – MARMARIS)
Day 1: Marmaris
Boarding starts at 3:30 p.m. from Marmaris Port. Early arriving guests can leave their luggage to Barbaros Yachting Office. On the first day, our boat will be anchored at Marmaris Port for dinner and overnight stay.
Day 2: Arabian Island – Bozukkale (Loryma )
While you have a breakfast, you will be informed about the cruise programme and then we will cruise for the Arabian Peninsula. The night will be spent in Bozukkale. In the historical city Bozukkale (Loryma), there is a castle which strectches out in a rectangle with its city walls and 9 temples. The name Bozukkale means ‘crooked castle’ and might be associated with the fact that one side of the castle is missing. Because of its geographical situation and the narrow port entrance, the port was also used by the Greek navy forces during the Pelepones Sea Battle. Karor, the Commander of Atina gathered all his ships here before the Cnidus War in 395 B.C., and Demetrios; the son of Antigonos used this port for the preparations before attacking Rhodes in 305 B.C.
Day 3: Dirsekbükü Bozburun
After anchoring in Dirsekbükü, we will go to Bozburun. Bozburun is a small fishing town.This area was popular and suitable for sponge-diving but nowadays the people of the island are no more interested in sponge-diving as it is not worthy and is dangerous. In the last years sponge-diving is replaced by gulet tourism and Bozburun Gulets nowadays could take its place in this sector.
Day 4: Bencik – Datça
Our first stop will be the Bencik Bay; which has a very narrow entrance but a unique view once you get inside. Bencik is located at the narrowest part of the peninsula that divides Hisarönü Gulf from the Gökova Gulf but it is closer to Hisarönü. In 550s B.C. the Cnidus people wanted to dig a tunnel in the narrowest land piece of the peninsula between the Hisarönü Gulf and the Gökova Gulf as a defence line against the Persians. That way they would make two peninsulas one island and the defense easier. They started with diligence and put a lot of effort; however, in the end they could not manage and the city was conquered by the Persians. We will sail to Datça to have dinner and spend the night.
Day 5: Symi ( Simi )
Completing all paper work and formalities, we will cruise for the first stop on the Greek island Symi. You can see the shore-side with its neo-classical houses and the peripheral districts. You are going to adore Simi for its pine and oak forests and unique bays.
Day 6: Rhodes ( Rhodos )
Sailing to Rhodes early in the morning. Rhodes is the largest of the Dodecanese Islands.
The island is a very popular holiday place as it has one of the best-protected and the largest European Medieval city and has warm weather almost 300 days of a year. Rhodes has been a home for many civilizations; starting with the knights of St.John in the Middle Ages, then Ottomans and Italians; thus the island has a unique historical harmony and the beauty of these three. The main port Rhodes is the Rhodes City which bears the same name with the island. The other very touristic areas of Rhodes island are; Lyndos and Kamiros. The city, which is still surrounded by 12 meter-thick city-walls, gives you the feeling of travelling back to Medieval times especially when you walk around its narrow, stone-paved roads. After dinner, our guests are highly recommended to enjoy a Rhodes night out.
