Göcek
An authentic yachting paradise


Yachting Town

Göcek sits on the lower south-western corner of the Turquoise Coast of Turkey, surrounded by mountains and stunning scenery, boasts an archipelago of beautiful islands and is only a 20-minute drive from Dalaman Airport.
Göcek is a gem in Turkish Riviera that has avoided the excesses of mass tourism and overdevelopment. With that, Göcek is primarily favoured by yachting community and less so by mainstream tourists.
This tranquil resort town offers gorgeous vistas of sea and mountains, easy access to the water, plus upmarket places to eat, sleep, and shop. Being a yachting town, it is focused on a pleasant, carless waterfront with 6 luxury marinas.

Village Port Marina

Saysail base is located in the luxurious Village Port Marina, which shares the same grounds with Rixos Premium, an exclusive, 5-star suites hotel, offering a variety of gourmet restaurants, a top-class spa and a private beach.

The various coves and 12 islands that surround Göcek provide a tantalizing look at an unspoiled Mediterranean of pine forests, crystal clear, turquoise water and beautiful beaches.

If you’d like to lazily sail only couple of hours a day, you can mostly stay in the protected waters of Gulf of Göcek, hopping from one cove to another, swimming where Cleopotra used to bath at Hammam Bay, sip a cocktail at hip but tranquil Adaia at Monastery Cove or settle for a family atmosphere at Muammer’s Fish Restaurant in Gobun Cove. All of these are only accessible by a boat. Feeling like visiting a bustling resort town, then head to Fethiye only 14 miles to East.

If you like putting more mileage under your belt, you can sail eastward to Kas-Kalkan-Kekova to indulge in historical sights while exploring new bays and anchorages or westward to Ekincik-Marmaris-Ciftlik to personally explore the intimate meaning of “Blue Voyage”.
