Gocek

Gocek is a picturesque marina town, 22km east of Dalaman international airport and 25km west of the main town of Fethiye.

It was named"Kalimche”in ancient times and according to legend, it is in Gocek that Icarus landed in the sea after his famous flight trying to escape from the tower where he was imprisoned. Göcek was used as a harbour for ships loading chrome ore collected from the mines under nearby mountains during the Ottoman period.

Today, Gocek hosts six significant marinas with over 2,000 moorings. It has become an irresistible yachting destination given its unique natural beauty of lush pine forests and idyllic bays and islands. Göcek has all the necessary infrastructure, capacity and amenities expected in a tourism centre, yet it is renowned as a much more peaceful and quiet settlement than some other tourism areas.

There are two beach clubs in Göcek, one in Port Göcek and one across the bay in Club Marina, reachable by a free steam boat service. Both can be used by paying a daily price or taking out a seasonal membership. Inlice Beach is a 10-minute drive from Gocek and run by the local municipality. Gocek Island beach is reachable by a 15min water taxi from the harbour. Other beaches are easily accessible by car including the protected beach of Iztuzu in the Dalyan Delta. In the opposite direction, the famous beach at Ölüdeniz is only 40 min drive away.

Calis

Calis is a popular holiday resort destination on Turkey’s ‘turquoise coast’, located 5km from Fethiye town and 40km from Dalaman airport. Calis beach hasn't always been a tourist destination; it was once a working beach, loading ships with iron ore and chromium from the mines inland.

Nowadays, Calis is a thriving town with many bars and restaurants lining the long pebbled beach. The sea breeze is ideal for water sport activities such as windsurfing and kite surfing. The pedestrianized beach promenade is the perfect place to sip a cocktail and watch the amazing sunsets.

Fethiye

Fethiye is one of Turkey's well-known tourist centers and is especially popular during the summer season. It was chosen as the best tourism center in the world by The Times and The Guardian newspapers in 2007. From the top of the Taurus Mountains to the deep blue Mediterranean Sea, Fethiye has some of the most spectacular scenery anywhere on Earth. The traditional Turkish sailing boats (gulets) are docked along the waterfront promenade, which is dotted with waterside cafes and many delightful seafood restaurants.

15 minutes drive away is Ölüdeniz (Blue Lagoon), 3 kilometers of natural beach and clear crystal blue waters. Not far away are the Gemiler Islands with Byzantine ruins amid their pine trees.

Kas

Kas is built around the remnants of the ancient Antiphellos and surrounded by a rugged rocky coastline. It has prospered from a small port into a major tourist destination exuding a special charm and easy going way of life.
