Gocek is a stunning small harbour town and the perfect start or finish point for your cruise.

Legend has it that Icarus landed in the sea here after flying too close to the sun whilst trying to escape from Crete. Known as "Kalimche" in the past, Gocek is located between Dalaman and Fethiye and only 20 minutes’ drive away from Dalaman airport.

Gocek's six marinas, beautiful bay, and spectacular scenery make it a popular choice with yachtsmen and visitors alike. In 1988 it was declared a special area of protection and as a result, no multi-story buildings are allowed which contributes to the upmarket and cosmopolitan feel of the resort.

Gocek has fabulous restaurants, cafes and boutiques, many of which line the water's edge in the marinas around the bay.

Scenically beautiful, Gocek exudes charm and quiet refinement. Great facilities, hotels and some wonderful places to explore and discover right on your doorstep make Gocek a classy choice to extend your holiday.
