Turkey Sailing to One of the World’s Best Marinas
Any Turkey sailing trip would not be complete without a visit to the unique town of Gocek. An area that manages to be bustling and exciting without ever being busy or overwhelming, this ‘natural marina’ has long been a popular mooring spot for professional and amateur sailors alike.
With secluded coves, soaring mountains, lush forests and a crystal-clear sea, it isn’t hard to see why Gocek continues to attract visitors each and every year. Understandably, the area is protected by the Turkish government under its National Park initiative, but for the sailing enthusiast it offers something even more special – some of the best marinas in the world.
The naturally unique shape of Gocek means that it provides the perfect position in which to step ashore. Protected from strong winds and easy to navigate, it is little wonder that it continues to be so popular. Not only that, the town has a growing reputation for shopping and eating, with its local market and freshly caught seafood dishes attracting attention from both near and far.
