Gocek is located on the outskirts of the harbour town of Fethiye in south-west Turkey. With a short 20-minute drive from Dalaman international airport and a reputation as one of the most exclusive resorts of the Fethiye area, it is home to several up-market marinas mooring hundreds of luxury yachts at any time.
The picturesque town is an important yachting destination on the Turkish Riviera. It offers the perfect sailing experience with secluded beaches and hidden coves and bays, many of which are only accessible by boat. Indeed, it is the absolute peaceful haven for famous yacht owners to enjoy the privacy they seek on their Mediterranean and Aegean tours.
The resort centre has a range of both traditional and international restaurants, bars, shops and supermarkets, with the marinas providing more in the way of trendy cafe bars and waterside dining, catering for distinguished guests and residents that love to mingle with the elite of the yachting scene.
The small permanent population that own property in Gocek is around 4,500 though this more than doubles in the height of the season when the temperature often reaches the high 40 degrees C, and permanent residents enjoy warm winter temperatures and minimal rainfall.
