* '''Yachting'''. One of the top cruising areas in the Mediterranean basin, southwestern reaches of Mediterranean Turkey (coasts of [[Lycia]] and western [[Pamphylia]]) offers abundant yachting options. In the much famed and hardly overestimated '''Blue Cruise''' (a.k.a. '''Blue Voyage'''; ''Mavi Yolculuk''), started by a group of Turkish intellectuals in 1940s and usually compared to cruising in [[Caribbean]], you take a chartered ''gulet'' type yacht (two-masted wooden boats) for a pre-specified amount of time (usually 15 days), and cruise from cove to cove with turquoise waters surrounded by pine-covered mountains suddenly rising at the edge of the sea, calling at coastal towns and fishing villages on the way. [[Marmaris]], [[Fethiye]], [[Kaş]], and [[Bodrum]] and [[Kusadasi|Kuşadası]] (the last two of which are in [[Aegean Turkey|Aegean Region]]) are usual starting points of a Blue Cruise, although voyages extending all the way from [[Izmir]] to [[Antalya]] are not unheard of.
