You’re spoilt for choice when it comes to beautiful places to visit on Turkey’s golden coast, but one of the must-see locations is the small town of Gocek. With a bustling marina just perfect for mooring boats, Gocek has long been a haven for those sailing Turkey’s seas.

With a number of marinas nestled in the natural beauty of the town, there is much to see and explore both on land and on sea. Offshore you will find a number of small islands where you can enjoy activities such as diving, or you can investigate some of the many culturally significant ruins which populate the area.

The town itself has something for visitors of all interests and tastes. As a result of a protection order in place, Gocek’s skyline has never been subjected to the high-rise complexes that have impacted on the natural beauty of other holiday destinations, meaning that it retains a sense of tradition unlike anywhere else on the Turkish coast. So from some of the best local cuisine the area has to offer to perhaps the greatest photo opportunities anywhere in the Mediterranean, it’s no surprise that Gocek has a well-deserved reputation as a favourite anchorage for sailors from across the world.
