Gocek Adasi Things to Do

  • A Walk in the Mountains around Hotel...

    Selim's wife and her sister took us for a 3 hour walk from the hotel, leaving at 7.30 in the morning with the aim of avoiding the heat of the day. The scenery was superb, but it was already extremely hot well before we got back, and we arrived feeling pretty exhausted!

  • Day Out in a Motor Boat

    Selim, the owner of the Hotel Montenegro, took us out for a day on a motor-boat. Usually, he takes guests on his own boat, but, when he took us, his was temporarily out of action, so he borrowed another one for the day. Our film ran out, as a result of which we didn't get a picture of the boat. However, we did get this picture of one of the staff...

  • Day out on a Gulet

    We spent a relaxing day on a gulet cruising round the islands off Göcek, and occasionally anchoring for a swim as well as for lunch, which was provided by the crew.

  • The Lycian tombs

    The Lycian federation spreaded between the bays of Antalya and Fethiye from around 1500BC.The most noticeable remainings of this civilsation are all their tombs carved directly into the rock face. You can find the largest and most famous at Telmessos (Fethiye) - the ‘Tomb of Amyntas’ but far from the herds of tourists, you can also find many other...

  • This is not a buoy...

    There is something more on this picture than just a buoy...if you look closer you could find where the name of this bay comes from!

  • Tomb bay

    Still South of Gocek but North of Kapi creek, we made another stop in Tomb bay for swimming and snorkeling, however there was something more to do...

  • The dwelling!!

    The turkish pilot (kind of sailing/yatching bible) was mentionning some noticeable dwellings in the creek. We didn't know the meaning of this english word. Asking to a local guy where was the dwelling, he pointed a direction, we walked there and the only stuff we noticed was some sheep-smelling stone shelters... Only, later on, I realised it was...

  • Climb to the top...

    ...of the hill nearby!! There is no real path but you can find your own one through the rocks!!It takes about 30-45 min to reach the top.

    more
  • Kapi Creek

    South of Gocek, you'll find this awesome creek, a little paradise on Earth!! A charming mooring to spend the night and an open-air restaurant are all you can find there......ah and crystal-clear water, I almost forgot to mention ;-)

Gocek Adasi Restaurants

    After the meal, Fikri took us to this dais in the corner of the restaurant garden to rest until it was time for the minibus back to our hotel.There is also a swiming pool in the garden, which passers-by are invited to use without charge, and some accomodation available.

  • Afrodit Restaurant

    We first stopped off at the Afrodit Restaurant, which is the last restaurant at the western end of the promenade, for complimentary cups of apple tea at the invitation of Fikri. Subsequently, we returned for an evening meal, and both enjoyed meat dishes. As you can see from the picture, the tables are right by the beach. It was a very quiet evening...

    more
  • Can Restaurant

    We enjoyed red snapper fish at this restaurant, which is slightly elevated so that it provides good views over the harbour. It is slightly more expensive than other restaurants that we have visited on the Turkish coast, but, apparently, the restaurants a street back from the promenade are a bit cheaper.

Gocek Adasi Nightlife

  • Turkish Folk, Nargile and Serenades

    Upstairs above small grocer market on the corner of square, this Turkish Music Bar and adjoining nightclub has nice atmosphere. A fair balance of locals and tourists - usually livens up come weekends when Gocek experiences boat cruise changeover days; but even can be filled with local villagers taking a night out. Action starts late, go after 9.30...

  • Artistic Tugra - Casual drinks - Now...

    Tugra Lounge (pronounced Toora), revamped just in time for New Years Eve 2006 was a good stop. It has been changed to the Maya Bar which is a simple restaurant serving kebabs and other turkish cuisine. It was reduced in size and its current partners were last seen merchandising anatolian carpets in 2007. The staff are friendly, ask for the Manager...

Gocek Adasi Off The Beaten Path

  • cosycarol's Profile Photo

    by cosycarol Written May 31, 2008

    If you take a taxi or a FWD vehicle around the coastal track road, which passes the boat repair yard, the naval harbour, and 'Club Marina' entrance, then drive further around (beware the road is rather unmade and full of potholes) you can reach some quite tranquil bays. These are filled with pines kneeling into crystal waters and usually a few gulets moored offshore. My favourite bay was the farthest around, just before the track road swept sharp right to veer in an inland direction (this road will eventually lead to the far off restaurant of Sarsala Bay and into back of Dalaman but is not recommended for cars). My taxi had to stop before this bay as the road was just falling apart, so twelve minutes later I was on the beach. I walked down a shrub lined hill path to its pebbled shore. This is a lovely picturesque bay with azure blue water, you can see bottom, and has sandy and pebble bed so good swimming with no obstacles apparent. There are pine forests behind the shoreline, giving some shade if required, but absolutely nothing else, so you need to bring refreshments. On my last visit a small boating family had set up a hut, hoping to merchandise tea and I did spot a water supply with old rubber tubing, around the end of the bay, in which you could steal a quick post swimming shower, but it could be a private supply? Planning to stay until dusk - take mosquito spray - you are close to the pine trees. If you are not good climber, the path is quite steep, you may stop off at a closer bay on the way where there are rushes growing in part of shore. Some of these bays are beautiful for swimming, but wear swimshoes in case of small sea urchins. Just take yourself, some drinking water and prepare for a very good day of sea bathing and relaxation..... Aaaahhhh........ (Please no radios, keep Gocek peaceful!)
