A village hemmed in on all sides by lofty hills, situated among farms and verdant forests in a sun-soaked coastline, sidewalks teeming with lemon and orange trees, backed by the glorious Taurus Mountains and jeweled by an island in the bay, giving Gocek its delightful scenic view and natural allure.
Reaching Gocek is a joyful experience itself with its hairpin turns, spine-tingling drops, and pine-clad mountains stretching to a vanishing point.
This unique and exclusive town is not a usual sprawling tourist center and differs from the fairly similar holiday destinations and its competitors. Highly treasured by the visitors who know its worth.
Gocek Bay is a blue haven for yachts as the island acts like a natural barrier and a breakwater, so the water is very calm. The majority of the shops and basic facilities are settled along the road that traverses the town where most sailors go on a shortstop for their yachting resupply.
It is relatively a small farming village that transformed into a swanky holiday resort. Yet, the locals are still actively busy with farming despite the increasing and fast-paced activities in the touristy coastline. Local houses are mostly located within a short distance from the resort’s famed promenade and still have their verdant gardens where fresh vegetables are grown by the residents.
This rustic village doesn’t have the main beach, but there are lots of dainty spots where visitors can spend a day sunbathing. Pebbly pockets are strung out around the shoreline, but easily accessible by a water taxi from one of the main marinas.
Gocek is one of the great places in Turkey to go sailing or cruising on a luxury yacht. It is a well-known and beautiful yachting spot and is a favorite holiday destination for yacht charter fans. This bustling town is also a favorite spot for well-heeled tourists and celebrities.
The view at the waterfront is indicative of the popularity of Gocek in yacht charter circles. The entire bay and its 4 marinas are teeming with all kinds of boats, ranging from the ordinary dinghies to the impressive luxury yachts and superyachts.
