Gulf of Gokova

Gulf of Gokova, located 25 km away from Mugla province on the shores of Turkey's Aegean region, is also known as the Kerme Bay. Gokova is just like a heaven with its numerous bays and perfect colour harmony of green and blue.

It is a well known fact that the Gokova Gulf which comprises a part of Bodrum, Milas, Marmaris and Datca coasts is the most beautiful gulf in Turkey. The sea and the pine trees integrate well with the bays sometimes running amongst the pine trees like a river. There are lots of nested bays at this section that are round in shape which are commonly referred as waterside thicket in the region.

Gokova Gulf is one of the essential destinations of yacht tours and blue cruises thanks to its natural and historical wonders. The ropes of boats can be fastened to the pine trees on the shore.

Visitors have multiple road options for getting to the Gokova Gulf from Marmaris.
