Though not really qualifying as a town since it’s mainly a series of family-run boarding homes strung along a valley near the Lycian ruins in Turkey, Olympos can be better described as a village. However, the region presents numerous attractions for those who dare to part with the beaches of the coast and large resorts which fill up with tourists at the beginning of the hot season every year. There are the Lycian ruins, which are very appreciated by most tourists coming to Turkey, an isolated Mediterranean beach, treehouse-styled bungalows and even flames that burn unexpectedly from the side of a mountain.
A gulet (sometimes spelled gullet) is an old type of a wooden sailing boat that has 2 masts and that has originally been present around the eastern Mediterranean, especially in yacht charter Turkey. In fact, today, gulets are particularly popular on Turkish shores and most tourists who come here will want to go on a gulet cruise.
One of the most visited parts of yacht charter Turkey, the coast or Riviera as some call it is in many ways better and cheaper than the Italian or French Rivieras, offering that unique oriental mystique to those who travel here. Yacht charter sailing is very much in high regard here, a fact noticeable also in the local infrastructure with lots of marinas and charter bases.
