Göcek, Mediterranean Turkey

Last Updated on December 13, 2022

Pristine little Göcek reminds me of Bodrum or Marmaris20 years ago: charming and uncrowded.

Göcek's living used to be fishing and farming, but now it's yachts and yachters. If you're not a yachter, there's little to do in Göcek except stop for a meal, a browse through the shops, and an overnight in one of the few small hotels. 

This is fine! You may want to break your journey in a quieter place than Fethiye or Ölüdeniz. If so, try Göcek. It can be a good base for exploring the region, its archeological sites and its beaches, and Göcek now has plenty of hotels, villas and rental apartments/flats.
