is there a beach in gocek itself?


was looking thro a few travel books in wh smiths today and in one of them (think lonely planet guide) it mentioned that there is a small beach, suitable for swimming from, on the western side of the harbour. Is this info correct pls as I can't see any signs of a beach on any of the online photos i've seen (apart from the swissotel one!)

LP describes it as a "scrappy beach", I would describe it as a shoreline as opposed to a long quay, which is what most of the seafront is composed of.

I think it is possible to go swimming from there, but I wouldn't recommend it, far better to get the little ferry boat over to Göcek Island, take a 12-island cruise or go to the beaches at Inlice or Katranci - take a look at my photos on TA.
