The gulf of Fethiye has much too offer.  History in abundance - in Manastir bay, underwater ruins, the sunken bath dedicated to Cleopatra, the Queen of Egypt.  Nature at its best, an area which has inspired artists to paint the surrounding areas.  One example is Taşyaka Bay, where Bedri Rahmi Eyüboğlu, a poet and an artist, created his famous fish painting.

Daidalos was the original name given to Göcek and the surrounding area in ancient times.  Legends claim that the name is derived from the architect Daidalos who was the creator of Icarus, the first man to fly.  It is also believed that Daidalos or Göcek served as the main port town of Lycia in the times of Strabo and Herodotus.  In the village of Inlice, 5 km to the south of Göcek, there is a temple-type rock tomb at the entrance of the village.  This gives us an idea of the boundaries of the ancient city.  Time has moved on but the peace, tranquility and spectacular beauty of Göcek and its surrounding areas is still very much alive and relatively untouched
