Göcek (Turkish pronunciation: [ɟøˈdʒek]) is a small town in Fethiye district in Muğla Province, Turkey. It was named “Kalimche” in ancient times, and is located between Fethiye – Telmessos in ancient times – and Dalyan – Caunos in ancient times.
Culture and History
Today, Göcek hosts six significant marinas that serve the yacht tourism in the region. Göcek became known to groups of artists and poets and to some fisherman from Bodrum as a result of their cruising along the Turkish Turquoise Coast, a journey later called the “Blue Voyage”.
The gulf of Göcek and Fethiye provides many opportunities to visit cultural sites as Caunos, Telmessos, Fethiye Museum, Tlos, Pınara, Letoon, Xanthos and Patara
