Gocek is the sublime meeting place of rural tranquility and contemporary comfort. Here are pleasant, well-kept seafront bars and eating establishments, well-stocked little shops and a clean, pretty market square. Walking along the seafront is a delight, the coastal hills rising all around and bowsprits of all kinds bobbing maritime greetings to you.
Kaya Koy, or Ghost Town, is an easy day trip and very inspiring with its impressive old Greek settlement. The popular Ölü Deniz offers a nice beach day, if you are fortunate to be able visit in the off season, otherwise the tourist crowds detract from the beauty. Being just twenty minutes from Dalaman Airport makes this the definitive place to begin or end your holiday.
