That said, there are still many off-the-beaten-path treasures waiting to be discovered, and you'll have the perfect opportunity to do so in between snorkelling, swimming in open water, relaxing in mud baths, and enjoying Turkey's beaches. Living aboard our state-of-the-art catamaran means you'll never have to go without.
