Fethiye & Göcek - A Yachting Heaven Protected by Mountains
On the southwestern coast of Turkey, Göcek is situated by the deepest part of Fethiye Bay. One of the most popular routes for boat holidays, Fethiye Bay owes its beauty to the sheltering arms of the mountains surrounding it, and the cedar, pine and elm forests where tree branches arch over the clear blue sea. The Dodecanese Islands of Greece, very close to Göcek’s spectacular geography, are another center of attraction with all the wonderful coves they have. As calm as an inland sea, Göcek is a sanctuary for sailing holidays away from strong winds and big waves. The shadows of the mountains remind you of the depth of this geography all the time.
The reflections of pine trees over the sea, the music of the branches moving in the soft breeze, and that amazing, glittering sea will be among the unforgettables of this sea holiday. You might be surprised by the fact that there are no beaches in Göcek town centre. All the coves are on the islands and other places reachable by boat. In short, a sea holiday in Göcek means a sailing holiday. Fethiye as the nearby bigger town is often pleasant, but sometimes you feel it has rather too many buildings. Nevertheless, it also has beautiful coves and islands as charming as those in Göcek.
