Enjoy a more leisurely holiday of shorter swims in sunlit bays where the Mediterranean and Aegean seas meet.
Relax in the quiet fishing town of Bozburun and peer out at sweeping views over the sea, with the Greek island of Symi in the distance.
Swim alongside rocky backdrops and explore the coastal terrain from our large, comfortable Turkish 'gulet'.
Seek out more secluded bays and complete a range of coastal swims, island hopping adventures and open water crossings.
The quiet town of Bozburun is located just 45km from the sandy beaches and pine-forested surrounds of Marmaris. It is a unique and peaceful base within the busy district of Muğla - a region scattered with mountains and home to several sites of historical interest. You can visit the ancient port town of Larymna (which means ‘people of sand’) or find the ruins of a long-forgotten citadel in Bozukkale (which means ‘broken castle’). The Carian trail also runs through Bozburun peninsula and offers plenty of incredible hiking routes and viewpoints to stop and savour the journey.
It’s here, where the Mediterranean and Aegean Sea collide, that you’ll uncover the many bays of Bozburun, washed with warm, clear waters. You’ll be spoilt for coastlines to explore and islands to circumnavigate. We even travel around on a traditional Turkish gulet - an ideal way to reach each swim spot and a fine display of traditional artisanry, perfected by the locals. There is plenty of room on the boat to stretch out, dry off and relax under the sun after you leave the water.
If you are set on exploring this part of the world, but keen for slightly longer swimming distances, please check out our classic Bozburun - Turkey trip.
Who is this trip for?
This trip is designed for swimmers who a enjoy a mixture of crossings and coastal swims, as well as exploring small islands and bays.
Swimmers should also have a basic understanding of open water swimming and be capable of completing the average swim distance of around 1.5km prior to the start of the trip. The average daily swim distance is around 3km (split over a minimum of two swims).
