Information on Gundogan

Gundogan is covered with colourful flowers all year round. Gundogan means `the Sunrise`. Gundogan is famous for its rock formations and ancient rock cemeteries and some imaginative local people believe that these rock formations are, in fact, the remains of an ancient zoo built of stone. Gundogan is located very near to the ancient Lelegian city of Madnasa.

Historians of antiquity say that the Lelegians were very skilled in stone works. If you look at these rock formations carefully, with a little imagination thrown in then you may see the wild animals of the ancient zoo carved in stone.

It is an important town for sponge diving, fishing, olive and tangerine growing. The old as well as the new settlers have protected the character of the town and have not touched the houses that are surrounded with trees of mandarins, olive, pomegranates, bananas and oak. Gundogan has roughly 4000 inhabitants. Boat trips leave from here to secluded Bays along the seashore. You can catch a ferry to Didim on the other side of the Bay and watch seals and dolphins swim alongside the boat.

Restaurants and cafes among tangerine, olive and pine trees situated and built on jetties circle the Bay offering traditional Turkish cuisine. Gundogan is also less expensive than other parts of the peninsula. Relax and take it easy with the local delicacies or a chilled glass of wine and watch the waves breaking on the rocks. 

This is an ideal spot for snorkeling where you are able to enter the sea from the jetties. Take a sit at the beach bar and watch the sun go down and witness spectacular sunsets. There is a small harbour with yachts, gullets, fishing boats and a sailing school offering dingy sailing, windsurfing , waterskiing and jet skis.

Across the Bay is `Rabbit Island` which has an old Greek church and standing remains of a Byzantine monastic settlement and it dates to the 9th Century A.D. If you wish to be active during your stay here, you will have plenty to do such as archeological trips in the area, underwater photography, horse riding, windsurfing, diving lessons, walking and trekking. Gundogan is  a natural sun spoilt Bay with a dramatic landscape where friendly people await you!
