Extreme tourism in Turkey Gocek is the Turkish Mecca for sailing enthusiasts

Gocek is another Turkish resort that is worth talking about in particular. It is located on the shore of a picturesque bay in Fethiye Bay at the very foot of the Taurus Mountains. When a person first comes to Gocek, he immediately catches the eye of the unique natural palette of this place, which includes all shades of blue and green.

Add to this the developed infrastructure, the mild climate, the friendliness of the locals and as a result you get almost ideal conditions for a good rest.

But the main difference between Gocek and other resorts is that it is a Mecca for sailing enthusiasts. The beginning of the process of transformation of this previously provincial place into a modern fashionable resort was laid by the President of the Turkish Republic Turgut Ozal. It was with his light hand that travel agencies became interested in this place and began to pour investments into the area, thanks to which ordinary fishing villages turned into luxury yacht marinas.

The popularity of Gocek is also influenced by its extremely convenient position. On all sides, except the one facing the sea, the resort is surrounded by a mountain range, which isolates it from the rest of the world. In addition, Fethiye Bay is calm by itself and thus the Gocs have double protection from various kinds of natural disasters. Delightful coves, clear bluish waters, charming islands attract the attention of yachtsmen from all over the world.

Another undoubted advantage of the resort is its complete safety in terms of the safety of property. Sailing enthusiasts can safely leave the keys to the vehicle to experienced pilots who will do everything necessary while you are busy shopping in the town.

At the same time, a number of rules that are established by local authorities should be observed. Anchoring in the harbor is strictly prohibited, and mooring can only be done with the stern to the pier. At the request of the owner of the yacht, the maintenance staff can pull it to the shore and fix it there at any time of the day or night.

If you are going to rest in Gocek, then by all means visit Tarsane, the largest island in the bay. A long and winding fairway leads to its bay, but the pilots will take you there without any trouble. On the island you can look at the ruins of the ancient city, the ruins of various buildings and, in addition, enjoy swimming on the beautiful sandy beaches or go diving here.
