Our Paradise on Earth
Our home base of Göcek is easily accessible via Dalaman Airport, just 25 kilometres and 20-30 minutes away.
With six world-class marinas, the berthing capacity in Göcek has surpassed 850. It is the home of Turkey’s oldest marina, its only natural marina and a well-known megayacht facility. The town’s pretty waterfront is a tasteful and comprehensive mix of service establishments. It is a famous yachting centre – one not to be missed.
In the summer, the average maximum temperature is 38 °C (100 °F). The sun shines over 300 days per year. Because of the climate, Göcek is renowned for growing wonderful tangerines, lemons and oranges.
The port is lively during the sailing season of April to November, culminating in a number of popular sailing events like the Bodrum Cup and Marmaris Regatta.
The people in Göcek are welcoming, as they are all along the coast. Turkish food is tasty and prepared from the best local meat, fish and seasonal vegetables. Their casseroles are splendid, traditional mezzes are numerous and ever-changing, Turkish pizzas (pides) are a delightful change from the Western version and their legendary kebabs are always delicious.
Göcek has some of the best food you can find along the coast, both Turkish and international cuisines. It has a plethora of eating establishments, some very stylish and well known. Many look out over the harbour and a “see and be seen” promenade. It is perfect for a stroll and some interesting people watching. After all, you need to keep your eyes open because you never know who might have just pulled in on their megayacht.
