The town of Foça is situated at about 69 km (43 mi) north by northwest of İzmir city center. Many parts of the district are under strict environmental protection, due to the value of the flora and the fauna, and the beauty of the small bays and coves, especially between Foça and Yenifoça.
A nice way to get to know the district would be by boat tours regularly organized in partance of the center town.Because of the protective measures, new constructions are not permitted in many parts of the district and Foça is set to preserve its unique characteristic as composed principally of old houses.
