Broadcaster Michael Buerk posted My Kind of Town in the Telegraph Travel online here. Read this and tell me you won't be making a Sunday boat trip to Gocek sometime this summer.
At the beach you can lounge about all day on the sun loungers, take the occasional paddle in the sea; have a drink and a bite to eat. And you can also hire a boat to take you over to the island. Our boat circumnavigated the entire island before dropping us off for a couple of hours and it was the first time any of us had ever seen the entire island via boat. Going round we pinpointed areas we wanted to explore – areas not always evident when on the island itself.
The island is well worth a visit. It’s hilly and rugged and high and dusty and dry . . . and enormous fun. On the the island there’s plenty to explore and marvel at. Climb to the very peak and just drink in the view. It is stunning. Remember to take water with you as there’s nowhere on the island to get it from.
So, if you want to relax on the beach, it’s Gemiler. If you want to explore, it’s St Nicholas Island. Or, you can do both. Two days out in one. What a bargain!
