July 26, 2006

Fethiye – Muğla – Turkey

Coordinates : 36° 37′ 55″ N / 29° 06′ 10″ E

Although Fethiye is one of the most popular sailing spots in the Mediterranean Sea, with a history dating back as far as the 4th Century BC, until now one thing was missing: a good marina. A place of such spectacular natural beauty, Fethiye and the yachting community surely deserved this.

And now, just such a marina has been completed. A marina that is first class with respect to the technology and materials used, the services, facilities, location, professional management and hospitality. Located on the eastern side of Fethiye Harbour, with a stunning panorama in front of it and a wealth of facilities behind, Ece Saray Marina provides not only a safe berth but also a real home for you and your boat.

The combination of a five-star marina, separate boat yard, a beautiful boutique hotel with a spa and wellness center, giant swimming pool, bars and restaurants serving both international and Turkish cuisine in a unique environment all contribute to making Ece Saray Marina such a perfect place to visit or to stay. On these pages you can find basic information about Ece Saray Marina and Resort and its related services and facilities, but it is impossible to mention everything we have to offer, rather, we would like to simply invite you to come to Ece Saray Marina and Resort and enjoy both our beautiful surroundings and our excellent services

In this paradise of bays bejeweled with yachts, the spectacular beauty, natural wonders and azure-colored water fill our lives with joy. If you sail East, the first stopover would be Karacaцren Bay or Gemiler Island where you can drop your anchor safely and enjoy the beautiful surroundings.

Gemiler Island (Santa Claus Island) with its glittering sea is a spot much favored by local and foreign yachtsmen. There, you can walk along old cobbled market streets in the ancient Byzantine city and wonder at the frescos and mosaics in the three churches. It is an excellent setting to watch the sunset with a drink or two!

The Church is dedicated to St Nicholas who was born at Patara and is forever immortalized as Noel Baba (Santa Claus). Within easy sailing from Fethiye you can reach the famous Blue Lagoon.

There are innumerable other islands and bays around the Gulf of Fethiye. We have only mentioned a few of them. The Fethiye region is a unique blend of natural beauty and archeological treasures : the place every lover of the sea dreams of exploring. All you have to do is to steer your boat into our marina, relax and enjoy the first class luxury and hospitality of Ece Saray Marina and Resort.

The most beautiful, tranquil and natural sailing areas along the Turquoise Coast are situated in the Fethiye Region. With it’s many sailing and yachting opportunities close by, Fethiye region is one of the most popular destinations in the world.

At the western end of the Gulf of Fethiye, within easy sailing or motoring distance, lie The Twelve Islands. The crystal clear sea is a pleasure for swimmers, the mild winds ideal for sailing and the sea-food is abundant. Hamam Bay is a natural beauty and a must for travelers on the turquoise voyage.

On the eastern face of the isthmus separating the Kurtoglu Point from the mainland there are underwater ruins of an ancient building. It is unclear whether this is a monastery or a public bath from the Byzantian period. The antique city Lydae is reached in a half-hour walk from Yavansu Bay. Fresh water can be procured from Taskaya where you can also visit Lycian rock-tombs on the slopes.

The Island of Tersane is very suitable for anchorage. It is sheltered from all winds and visitors can wander among old, tumbledown houses. At the bay of Gobun, roasted fresh fish and bread await you. At Boynuzbuku, swimming in the chain of inlets is a thrilling experience. These are just a few of the many pleasures you can enjoy in this unique region where the green and the blue of the sea blend into a shimmer of turquoise. To sail in these waters, enjoy the natural beauty and explore the many ancient sites is the dream of yachtsmen from all over the world.
