Turkey was our first destination in the Mediterranean and a wonderful surprise. We fell in love with the azure waters and dramatic mountain scenery of the coast, the friendly people and rich culture of this country.
The Mediterranean coast of Turkey is called the "Turkish Riviera" for good reason with many secluded anchorages, beautiful towns, many ruins (some even in the anchorages), fabulous bazaars and quaint cafes and restaurants catering to cruisers.
