After breakfast, we sail to Orak Island for lunch and then cruise to our overnight stop at Cokertme, a small and picturesque fishing town. On first glance you may not be impressed by Cokertme, but the closer you sail the more attractive you will realise this bay is. The hills that surround the bay are covered in pine trees and dotted with olive groves, then as you come closer you will see the shore has little local restaurants dotted along the coast line.Undoubtedly you will find fellow sailors at Cokertme, enjoying tasty local food and wine. You also may be lucky enough to enjoy some local Turkish music while dinning in the bay as well; it’s a great way to end an evening.

From Marmaris the yacht sails to Sedri Adasi (Cleopatra Island). It is said that it was once the meeting place of Queen Cleopatra and her lover Mark Anthony. Cleopatra is said to have ordered pure white sand to be brought to the island from Egypt to create her own secret paradise. Because of this, the sandy area of the beach is sectioned off with rope because the sand there is protected by law and you’re not allowed to take it with you or even lay your towel on it incase some of the sand sticks to your towel We spend the afternoon sailing to English port for our overnight stop.
