Many sailors think the Gulf of Fethiye comes second after the Indian Ocean because of the marvellous seascapes it has to offer. Until a few years ago, the town of Fethiye was the only land chosen to enjoy this exquisite corner of the world. However, years later, several accommodations have become accessible in this charming village of Gocek.
With its large natural harbor, Gocek has developed in providing the needs of yachtsmen. A walk around the Marina, admiring the display of boats of all shapes and sizes tied up here is one of the enjoyments of visiting Fethiye. The waterfront of Fethiye is filled up with restaurants and bars. The inland life revolves around the pretty market square which is filled with little shops that are selling crafts and off course, the usual items- the carpets.
