The deep waters of the Gulf of Gökova, on the southern shore of the Bodrum peninsula vary from the dark blue to pale turquoise, and the coastline is thickly wooded with bright green trees.  In the evening, the sea reflects the mountains silhouetted against the setting sun, and at night it shimmers with beauty.

Archaeological ruins and historic sites are also found in Turkey's southern coastal regions.  Many ruins and sites such as Cleopatra's Island, Knidos, Kaunos, Patara and Kekova can be seen directly from the sea. 

The climate of this region delivers sailing excellence with a season that stretches from April to October.  June, July and August are of course the hottest months. May and September are slightly cooler with a nice breeze and April and October still offer around 8 to 9 hours of sunshine a day.

The winds in this area blow from the north, north-west and average approximately 11-16 knots in August. During early and late season the winds shift slightly to the west with cooler fresher temperatures.
