A summer along the Turkish Riviera

A summer along the Turkish Riviera


The new superyacht charter trend can be summed up in two words: Turkish Riviera. Nestled in the Eastern Mediterranean, slowly becoming the new "hot" spot, with its expansive cruising grounds full of isolated places, completely calm beaches and secluded anchorages, the Turquoise Coast (the second name of the Turkish Riviera) is a must-see on your summer Mediterranean travels. With its rich antique history interspersed with Greek, Persian and Oriental influences, the region is the preferred destination for escaping the overcrowded French Riviera. Loaded with hidden gems to be discovered, offering a very large charter window between May and October, its water quality is some of the finest in the Mediterranean, guaranteed jellyfish-free. Have you heard about buzzy Gocek, Antalya, Marmaris? The Turkish Riviera is also fast gaining a reputation as one of the best places to party in the Mediterranean. Recent years have seen an explosion of fine-dining establishments on the Turquoise Coast too, and connoisseurs will be delighted to experience new tastes from the exquisite Turkish cuisine. A perfect blend between the traditional ways of life and modern living, the cities bordering the Turkish Riviera have adapted to the trend, becoming the best places to relax and retreat before going exploring the region further. Diving addict? The 200 km of coast host a wealth of diving sites with caves, wrecks, canyons and walls. The rich underwater ecosystems are among the most interesting in this part of the Mediterranean. So why should the Turkish Riviera feature on your bucket list? From her rich past to the impressive landscapes, through the fantastic culinary tradition, we have interviewed our experienced Captains to understand why they recommend exploring the region this summer. Suited to both family charter trips and more active holidays with friends, the Turquoise Coast has everything to please even the most demanding guest: diving spots, endless white sand beaches and lively nightlife. Read the review below, and let our Imperial Charter team organise your journey on site.
