BODRUM & ISLANDS (NORTH DODECANESE)

Day 1 Bodrum

Sailing along the Gulf of Hisaronu from Bodrum to Kos is a stunning way to begin your vacation.  As you sail over the clear turquoise blue sea, you are following in the footsteps of the ancient world,  the world of the Greek gods. What was once the garden of Neptune is now yours to explore.

 Pine trees come right down to the shores and the shoreline is embellished by date palms. Hisarönü Bay is one of the prettiest bays in the Aegean Sea. Nature has been generous here - blue and green mingle as two pretty birds in one nest.

Day 2 Kos Island

Next destination of your Sigma Yachts  is Kos Island. The Dodecanese Island of Kos is known for its glistening sandy beaches. It’s also rich with Greek and Roman sites. Its rich history includes the impressive fortress, the Castle of the Knights of Saint John close to the Town harbor, the ancient  tree under which Hippocrates taught students.  This harbor town is dominated by the 15th-century Neratzia Castle. South of the castle are the Ancient Agora ruins, with a temple, shrine and columns. The 3rd-century Casa Romana villa has lavish mosaics.  Kos Town has numerous restaurants, tavernas, cafes and shops and a vibrant night life.

Day 3 Pserimos Island, Lakki (Leros Island)

Your next port of call is the beautiful island of Pserimos.  The island is small with about only 100 residents, whose main source of revenue is from fishing.  Most of the local tourism comes from day trippers out of Kos or Kalymnos and provides organized beach trips and parties. Since you are sailing in a gulet, you can enjoy visiting Pserimos any day of the week and join in on the local fun. 

The harbor has few berths, and you will find that the island also provides some secluded spots to anchor.  The town offers delicious local dishes made from fresh produce and seafood. The salads all come with delicious capers – the cliffs are full of them, and it is no coincidence that the island is also called Kappari (the Greek word for “caper”). For lunch or dinner, head to the family-owned taverna Manòlas. The owner raises his own animals, produces his own cheese and olive oil, and even catches a lot of the seafood he serves. 

There are plenty of taverna dotted along the coastline, so you will always find a place to visit no matter in which location you decide to anchor.

Day 4 Skala (Patmos Island)

Next stop of your blue voyage is Skala. Skala is the main town of Patmos island. Built around the harbor, it grew rapidly in the 19th Century with wealthy families deciding to make it their home. Two landmarks to look out for while you are there are the ancient acropolis and the Church of Agia Paraskevi.

Day 5 Lipsi Island

Sigma Yachts continues. Lipsi in the Dodecanese doesn't have much tourism but has beautiful beaches and sparkling clear waters. Lipsi has some tavernas and shops but it is not really a place for stocking up.

BODRUM & ISLANDS (NORTH DODECANESE)

Day 6 Klymnos Island

Klymnos is known for its lovely architecture and its amazing rocky landscape that has made Kalymnos a top climbing destination. Climbing in Kalymnos is such a popular activity that a climbing festival takes place on the island every year. 

Kalymnos Town is the main settlement on the island and few would argue about its beauty; brightly coloured walls, doors, shutters and balconies make the streets a great place to wander around. 

Kalymnos  also has a long sponge making tradition. Even though the islanders don’t fish sponges for living anymore, you’ll find many sponge sellers at the beachfront of Porthia, the island’s capital.

Day 7 Turgutreis, Karaincir

Turgutreis, the second largest city on the Bodrum peninsula, and with a fantastic coastline town offering a lot of attractions. Its westerly vistas make it an ideal location for watching the famous Turgutreis sunsets, accompanied by an chilled glass of Efes.

There is a lot to find in this exceptional city, including a variety of restaurants, shops, a weekly market held each Saturday, boutiques and hidden cafes all waiting to provide you with every smell and taste of local cuisine.

Day 8 Bodrum

After a wonderful Sigma Yachts journey, you  sail back to Bodrum and prepare for your flight home.   The city features twin bays with views of Bodrum Castle. This medieval fortress was built partly with stones from the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, completed in the 4th century B.C.

Since the 1960s the castle has hosted a fascinating museum dedicated to the underwater finds from  ancient, medieval and early modern shipwreck sites around the Turkish Aegean.

The city is also a gateway for nearby beach towns and resorts. Bodrum is a jewel surrounded by golden sunsets and sparkling blue waters. Enjoy all the local cuisine, cultural attractions and visit the waterfront outside the Bodrum Castle. 

Farewell to Turkey with wonderful memories to take home!
