Demre & Patara

Demre & Patara


Yacht charter in Turkey gives you a chance to discover the world's most beautiful places with rich history and amazing nature!

Did you know that one of the world’s most renowned saints - Saint Nicholas - was born and lived in Turkey?

Our kids know him as Santa Claus, and we know him as the patron of sailors, travelers, merchants, and children. The icons with his face are present in churches around the world. Yet, not many people know that Saint Nicholas was born in the ancient Patara, the capital city of Lycian League. Its ruins lie in the present-day borders of Antalya province in Turkey.

Patara is the city where the miracles of Saint Nicholas took place. It is Turkey’s one of the most visited travel destinations, as well as the nearby ancient Myra (present-day Demre town) where Saint Nicholas became the bishop.

Travelers come to Patara and Demre from all over the world, and not only Turkey. These two spots are often included in the yacht charter itineraries.
