The village of Göcek was founded on the shores of Göcek Bay located in Gulf of Fethiye. Geographically, Göcek is surrounded by the Taurus Mountains, except to the south where a gateway to the sea provides easy access to calm and well-protected harbours.
Gocek lies in the intersection of the Mediterranean and Aegean Turkey, climate being mostly Mediterranean. Gocek can be visited any time of the year but the best weather conditions are between May 1st and October 15th. The second half of October is good for yachtsmen looking for winds but there is also a higher chance of rainy days.
Historical name is Kalimche and rock tombs dating two thousands years back can be seen outside the village. Gocek was home to Lycian civilizations. However there are no major historic ruins in or in the immediate surroundings of the city.
