Set at the deepest point of the gulf of Fethiye, Gocek nestles at the foot of the pine clad mountains overlooking the Twelve Islands anchored in the bay. With a large natural harbour, Gocek has grown up to meet the needs of yachtsmen.
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.
Sailing in Turkey also enables you to experience a truly enriching cultural exchange with the hospitable and gracious people of the coastal villages and towns. The tempered winds which generally blow from the west and northwest make the long summers ideal for yachting.
For lovers of nature, you will appreciate the unspent and sheltered bays of the turquoise coast. Where you can see mountain peaks rising to almost 3000 meters (10,000 ft) above sea level. For lovers of water sports, Gocek provides enormous opportunities for sailing in the clear waters, swimming, fishing, skiing, wind-surfing and diving.
Famous poet Homer of Izmir says when the sun sends its golden rays behind the mountains and at the moment the colour of the waters transform into the colour of wine, colourful nights of Göcek start.
