Gulf of Gocek by Day

  • Luxury Yacht Charter

Explore Gocek By Day...

For a day spent ashore, these are the places to be pampered, the sights to see, the shopping districts to delve into, the activities to indulge in, and the gourmet treats to discover.

Combining the rural beauty of terracotta tiles and the cool elegance of Mediterranean architecture, the Swissotel is Gocek’s only hotel and, after setting the standard so high, the only one necessary to the area. This indulgent bastion for relaxation sits on the only beach in Gocek Bay, and as such, is the ultimate destination for a luxurious water-front hideaway. Only minutes from the exclusive Marina Port Gocek, this is the perfect place to taste the rich atmosphere of rural Turkey.


For a more inclusive luxury experience, the Letoonia resort located on the Lycian coastal town of Fethiye has got it all. With an exclusive marina on the property, there is a seamless transition from boat to beach. Set on a sprawling stretch of gorgeous coastline, the Letoonia overlooks the glittering southern Aegean Sea and is a lush bastion of extravagant opportunity. Complete with a full service spa offering innovative treatments tailor-made to rejuvenate the body and refresh the spirit.

From the pristine beaches of the Fethiye Peninsula to the ancient ruins of the Greek settlement at Kayakoy, the region around and included within Gocek is absolutely stunning.

The Gulf of Gocek is an area rich in culture and tradition, which translates to poor shopping as far as labels are concerned, but gold, tapestries and antiques abound, executed to the highest possible standard.

Fethiye is an ideal location to procure all three and boasts several areas, outside of the bustling and rowdy bazaar, with gorgeous boutiques offering premier merchandise.

In the small village of Kayaköy a group of village women have banded together, with the help of some local subsidy, to create some remarkable carpet products.

For true outdoor buffs, the newest activity to sweep the Gulf and Lycian Coast is canyoning. Head to the heart-stopping Saklikent Gorge, the longest and deepest gorge in Turkey, to abseil down a waterfall, squeeze through narrow passages and climb ancient boulders under the expert tutelage of a personal guide.

Paragliding aficionados will be ecstatic to experience the new mecca for the sport: Kaş and Oleduniz are known to be the best places in the world for excellent paragliding.

Canoe down the Xanthos River to experience the lush, fertile beauty of the Xanthos valley landscape first-hand: whether you go for a few hours or spend the whole day beneath the sun, this will prove to be an unforgettable activity.

Cem & Can
Choose a fish from the fish counter at the centre of the bustling market then bring your purchase to this humble spot in the city’s rustic corner, nearest to Belediye Caddesi: it's as no-frills as you can get, and equally authentic.
