Göcek - Fethiye

which recently became the meeting point of yachtsmen and lovers of the sea, has attained a justified fame with its natural position. The coves where colorful yachts ranging from the latest models to small vessels meet, can be visited in all seasons. In addition to being an ideal place from the standpoint of wind, sea and air temperature, it is only 22 km from the Dalaman Airport with international standards. Also the yacht marina built in recent years and improved rapidly has placed Göcek into a privileged state. Any plane that you board, for example, in Istanbul, Ankara and even some places abroad would relieve you from the problems of world and take to the blue-green paradise of Göcek.



Besides all of these, Göcek is, at the furthest north end of Fethiye bay, and is in a location very close to both the islands and to the coves each more beautiful than the other. You can meet all of your requirements here before starting out for a blue voyage and very easily come back within few days to replenish your supplies. Göcek which was a small village until very recently has now became a municipality within a very short period of time with the yacht marina. Today, the municipality, despite its limited possibilities, with great effort is providing services for incoming guests as well as availing immense possibilities to the yachtsmen with the rearrangement made on the shore. Furthermore, the accomplishment of all the PTT services and availability of ATM machinery employed in international banking helped to establish a rapid relation with the rest of the world.

Due to its location on the Fethiye highway, in Göcek where land transportation is also made, you can obtain all the provisions you need to world standards as well as being able to find all kinds of domestic and foreign newspapers, books, and other publications. It is possible to enter into the port of Göcek, regardless of day or night, without any danger at all. Yachts as well as being moored at the wharf, which belongs to the municipality, can also moor either at the Skopea Marina or at the Club Marina which takes its place in Bungus Cove with unbelievable beauty. Sea and nature in Göcek where no contamination takes place at all are gleamingly shining as if they had just been created. In addition, the collection of contaminants in coves, by the Göcek Culture and Tourism Association shall contribute to the keeping of this condition in the area for a long while. Also the construction policy implemented by the municipality prevents the spoiling of nature by not allowing new structures.

This region, since 1988 has been declared a special environmental protection area and as a result has become a third degree natural site. In the waters near the Forest Department administration section in the vicinity of Göcek a breakwater and a variety of old remains can be observed. The old name of Göcek is Kalinche and in nearby coves, like in this one, many other old remains can be seen. These remains are a proof of these coves having been used in earlier times. If you decide to stay in Göcek, like the famous poet Homer of Izmir says when the sun sends its golden rays behind the mountains and at the moment the color of the waters transform into the color of wine, colorful nights of Göcek start. After living up the nights in Göcek until the time of complete satisfaction, let us depart here to meet in coves of Göcek which itself is the paradise on the earth which owns marvels of nature, each more beautiful than the other, like Atbuku, Boynuz Buku, Bedri Rahmi, Siralibuk, Sarsala, Manastir, Gobun Coves and Göcek, Yassicalar, Tersane and Domuz Islands.

Set at the north-west end of the Gulf of Fethiye, Göcek is blessed with magnificent scenery. Backed by majestic mountains and substantial pine forests it looks out over the Twelve Islands, which provide shelter for Göcek's almost circular bay that has made the village such a perfect, natural harbor. Lured by such perfection, the yachting community has long made Göcek a favorite, and it is also a popular stop for gullet cruises.

Perhaps this explains Göcek's impressive range of facilities for a place that remains so blissfully unspoiled: there are only a handful of small hotels and pensions, yet all along the wide, landscaped promenade that fringes the quayside, there are plenty of eateries, from simple cafes to excellent restaurants specializing in delicious fresh fish. In the back streets and around the old village square by the mosque, there is a surprising array of interesting craft shops.

From the harbor you can take boat trips around the Twelve Islands and a boat is also the natural choice of transport to reach Göcek's beaches, the nearest of which lies just a little further around the bay. An enjoyable, 20-minute trip - which is provided daily free of charge for Simply Turkey guests - takes you to an immensely picturesque cove on Göcek Island, where you can feel like Robinson Crusoe for the day!
