Have you ever been to Türkiye?
If your answer is no, you should definitely come. There are 7 regions in Türkiye. There are countless natural and historical beauties in every region. In this article, I want to tell you about a place that I can call heaven on earth “Gocek“. A holiday destination where Mother Nature generously displays all her skills. Take your backpack, book your place in one of the budget hotels and get ready to explore this magnificent nature with the excursion boats.
Transportation to Göcek is very easy. The distance between Göcek and Dalaman International Airport is 22 km.
There are frequent flights to Dalaman Airport from the major airports of the world from April to November. It is very easy to reach from Antalya and İzmir, which are the big cities close to Göcek. The flight from Dalaman to Bodrum Airport takes approximately one hour.
Boat tours are the thing I recommend most to do in Göcek. There are yachts just for you or daily cruise boats with an average capacity of 50 – 60 people. I preferred the excursion boats. Lunch is included in the excursion boats. Grilled fish with a wonderful sauce. It’s really delicious. Boats tour the bays in the sea for about 8 hours. You throw yourself into clean waters in the magnificent bays of Göcek. If you are lucky, you can pass a caretta caretta and continue swimming with it. The sea is so clear that you can see it clearly without goggles, but you should always have your goggles and snorkel with you. I tried two different tour boats. Both were really good. The captains and other staff do their best to give you a beautiful and unforgettable day. You can see these boats on the following tripadvisor pages.
One of the most famous bay is The Cleopatra Bath. The Cleopatra Bath is famous for its ruins. Legend has it that this bath was built as a wedding gift to Cleopatra. This place was chosen because it has a hot spring fed by the thermal waters of a crater lake located behind one of the mountains to the north of the bay. You can swim among the ruins.
If you are lucky, the excursion boat can take you to the blue cave. It is realy amazing. There is a cave in the sea. The water is very cold in the cave. You can feel very different when you are swimming in a cave in the sea.
After the boat tour in the evening, after going to the hotel and resting, it is time to go to the Göcek marina and enjoy the delicious meals. You can find many kinds of restaurants from seafood to traditional Turkish dishes. If you like appetizers, there are places you should definitely visit.
I enjoyed it very much.
When you come here, you will get rid of all the stresses of today’s life. Journeys in turquoise waters, perfect harmony of nature and peace, will be like a therapy for you in Göcek.
