Bobbing bowsprits, busy bistros and bustling shops. The pleasant, spruce maritime market town is a delight. A walk along its seafront, with green hills rising all around, beckons day and evening. In Gocek bay, 12 pretty islands await. A languid cruise threading its way between them combines relaxing tranquillity and aesthetic delights – many have pristine beaches, others offer delightful restaurants or are historically significant. Discover the ruins of Cleopatra’s hamam in which you can still bathe.
Gocek is a perfect base from which to explore some of Turkey’s most popular places – the Blue Lagoon, the Greek ghost town of Kaya, and the caves, mud baths and turtles of Dalyan.
Relax into your holiday almost immediately: the town is only 25 minutes from the airport.
