"Of Turquoise Waters and Luxury"

Gocek Tourism

Gocek is a town in the Fethiye district of Mugla Province, Turkey. The resort town of Gocek offers panoramic views of the sea and lush green valleys. It is an ideal place for travelers who enjoy a country-style vacation in the middle of nowhere. Located at a 20-minute hilly drive from Dalaman Airport, Gocek is known for its gorgeous beaches, shorelines, and turquoise waters.

Gocek, as a laid-back destination, has not much to explore. The Oniki Adalar or the twelve islands situated on the Gulf of Gocek are extremely popular for their coves and isles. In addition, the Gocek coastline is studded with palm trees, and a wonderful waterfront promenade is framed between them. This is a popular destination for evening strolls by the waters. The Gulf of Gocek is one of the most picturesque yachting destinations in the country and the Mediterranean basin.

Gocek is considered an excellent pit stop for travelling to Fethiye, Dalaman and Antalya. Since the village has only one private beach, numerous wooden tour boats leave every morning to visit other areas. The Twelve Islands, which are strung out like a belt across the opening of the harbour, offer the best diving and snorkelling experiences near their beaches and in their coves. Gocek is an abode of tranquillity and a fantastic destination for couples on their honeymoon. It is often visited by people who are looking for a luxurious vacation.
