GÖCEK




Göcek has long been a desirable destination for both Turkish and foreign yachtsmen, as well as a favorite stopover for jet-setters and celebrities alike. This fabulous village of two-thousand inhabitants is only 20 minutes by car from Dalaman International Airport, which can be reached in under 1 hour from Istanbul.

It is not just world-class yachting that makes Göcek a special place; it is the way the culture and nature blend in such a serene way. Strict development laws ensure that this very unique setting is protected; and since there is no oversupply of hotels.

You may stay at internationally renowned boutique hotels, swim at a private beach or in one of the dozens of heavenly bays of Göcek, dine at gourmet restaurants, or enjoy a day of sailing in the blue & green fjords of the Mediterranean.

BEDRI RAHMI KOYU
Bedri Rahmi Bay is one of the most popular bays in the Fethiye Gulf, which is located opposite Tersane Island (Dockyard) and known as Tasyaka Bay. Bedri Rahmi Eyüboglu was a great writer and painter of Turkey. He and his close friends were the first blue voyagers of the country who discovered the beautiful Lycian coast and informed people about these beauties. On one of his cruises, he painted a fish on a rock behind a fountain of the bay in 1973, and ever since the bay has been called by his name.

The bay is well protected against the wind and suitable for anchoring. Pine, olive trees and oleander flowers on the surrounding slopes, small beach and crystal - clear water complement the historical remains on the hill and create an idyllic setting. There are many Lycian rock tombs hidden behind the trees, as well as ones shaped like pigeonholes on a great rock. You can also see a rock tomb with an ornamented door and a triple tomb on the slope. According to the ancient historians, the city that is located behind of the hill was the Lycian town Crya. 

BOYNUZ BÜKÜ
Boynuz Bükü is located between Bedri Rahmi Bay and Göcek opposite the Yassica Island. 
It is a good anchor place and very little affected by the winds. When you anchor your boat in the bay, you can see frankincense (liquidiambar oriantalis) trees which are protected by the government. 

AT BÜKÜ
At Bükü, which is located north of Boynuz Bükü, consists of two small bays; Günlüklü and Osman Aga bays. Here again you will find frankincense (liquidiambar oriantalis) and pine trees. Osman Aga bay has also a small beach and a spring water source.

MERDIVENLI BAY
Merdivenli Bay is located next to Göbün (Kapi) Bay north of Fethiye Gulf. The name of the bay (Merdivenli = stepped) is taken from very impressive steps into both sides of the rocks in the bay. The nearest small village is also called Merdivenli Köy (stepped village).

DOMUZ ISLAND (The island of Pigs)
The Island of Pigs is the nearest Island to the peninsula west of the Gulf. It is covered with olive and pine trees. A quay and couple of houses can be seen when you sail along the north coast. East and west of the bay are ideal for overnight anchorages. 

GÖBÜN (KAPI) BAY
Göbün Bay is the first anchorage when you enter Fethiye Gulf between the peninsula and Domuz Island. The Bay is surrounded with pine and olive trees and very well protected against all winds. Therefore Göbün bay is an ideal place for yachts even during winter. A fisherman / diver; Tahir, runs an excellent restaurant, specializing in fresh fish, and is well known to blue voyagers.
