    Göçek sits in a beautiful, secluded bay with a dramatic backdrop of mountains and is traditionally a good starting point for charters. You’ll find an excellent infrastructure for welcoming visitors with lots of cafés and bars on the promenade.


    This bay, just by Gocek is a gorgeous place for cruising. 12 km long with little islands and numerous coves for swimming, the water is calm and the atmosphere very peaceful.


    Gemiler Island is a mythical island with verdant woodland and aquamarine waters. Explore the fascinating ruins dating from Byzantine times including a covered walkway leading to the water's edge and a church with partially excavated mosaic floors.


    Kalkan is a pretty coastal town set on a hillside overlooking the sea. Explore the picturesque harbour and the narrow streets where bougainvillea and jasmine spill from the balconies and the local vendors sell an amazing variety of merchandise.

    Said by some to be the most beautiful cove on the Gulf of Antalya, Ceneviz is bound on one side by sheer mountains and on the other by pine-clad beach. Behind its own beautiful beach the ancient settlement at Olympos is well worth exploring.
