Gocek Island beach to Sarsala Bay, the best way, and the only way to reach these remote areas is on Gocek Islands cruises. Gocek Islands cruises will take you to places that large cruise ships just can’t reach. On your cruise you will get up close and personal with marine life and nature 24 hours a day and you will visit small villages and dine on the beach where crowds are thin and the air is clean.
Gocek Islands cruises take place aboard a yacht or gulet. A gulet (also called “goulette” or “gullet”) is a two-masted sailing vessel that originated on the South West coast of Turkey. Modern gulet’s are roughly 45-115 feet long and they are popular for various types of cruises. Gulets are also perfect for sunbathing, and guests can even go snorkeling or diving from the boat, canoeing, and even fishing. What’s even better is just about every nook and cranny of the Gocek Islands can be observed from the deck of a handmade gulet. Whether you’re looking to spend five days, seven days, or several weeks touring the Gocek Islands, Gocek Islands cruises are the perfect choice for adventurous travelers.
Some gulets have modern amenities, and some do not. Because they are not large ships like Carnival or Royal Caribbean ships, they will have comfortable (but small quarters), with clean en-suite facilities, showers, and hot and cold water. In some cases, the gulet may not have air conditioning, but every cabin will feature a perfect view of the sea and surrounding landscapes. Keep in mind that Gocek Islands cruises are more for nature lovers and those that love to sail than those looking for luxurious accommodations, onboard entertainment, spas, and elegant dining options.
