Set at the deepest point of the gulf of Fethiye, Gocek nestles at the foot of the pine clad mountains looking out over the '12 islands' of the bay.

Gocek which has recently started developing in tourism, is becoming a famous yachting harbour both in Turkey and in the world.  As well as having three marinas and the Belediye quay, Gocek is a base for charter and bareboat, gulet and motor yacht agencies, there are also technical sevices workshops for every possible need. 

One of the pleasures of a visit here is a stroll around the Marina to admire the array of boats of all shapes and sizes moored here. The waterfront is lined with bars and restaurants. Inland life revolves around the pretty market square which is lined with little shops selling antiques and crafts as well as the more usual carpets.

With Dalaman Airport only 30 minutes away, Gocek makes an ideal base while waiting for guests or visitors.

Gocek

The Bay of Skopea, which streches out from the village, is a perfect place for cruising; its twelve islands offer abundance of sheltered coves. Tersane Island features the partially submerged ruins of a Byzantine monestry and an ancient boat-yard. There is a restaurant on the island, making it a favourite overnight anchorage. Thought this area is called the 12 islands, there are, in fact, far more than that and you could easily explore a different one each day of your holiday. On some you will find a simple restaurant, on others fragments of classical or Byzantine ruins, on others nothing but glorious peace and quiet.
