About this blog
Göçek is another ideal place to start your blue cruise from. This pretty little village is just half an hour away from the Airport of Dalaman and it's position on the Bay of Göçek makes it one of the most popular sailing areas. The town of Göçek itself is situated at the base of a beautiful mountainous background covered with pine forest. The quiet little village has a wide seafront promenade backed by restaurants, bars, small hotels and pensions. The Gulf of Göçek is dotted with islands and numerous coves and is an ideal bay to explore on land and by sea. The ruins of Arymaxa an ancient city lie at the waters edge at the southern tip of the gulf. There are Byzantine ruins on Tersane Island some of which are the ancient shipyards.
