The Bozburun Peninsula is a beautiful and quiet stretch of Turkish coastline, with sleepy rural villages, sheltered coves and stunning bays. It is unspoilt Turkey at its best. It is an area of outstanding natural beauty, untouched by mass-market tourism, classed as a nature reserve by the Government thereby protected against high-rise development.
The fantastic local sailing conditions make it popular with yacht owners who come from around the world for the tranquility and relaxed atmosphere. The largest marina on the Bozburun Peninsula is Marti Marina in Orhaniye.
The village of Bozburun itself is where some of Turkey’s finest wooden Gulets are built, and are exported all over Turkey, as well as many neighbouring countries along the Mediterranean. Approximately 45 minutes drive from Orhaniye, it is well worth a trip, and the coastline and scenery you will pass along the Peninsula are simply breathtaking.
