GŁndogan - not discovered by mass tourism yet

Gündogan

Only a few minutes West of Yalikavak a place that can be really called peaceful. This little village is still more or less unspoiled despite the holiday developments on the surrounding hills. Gündogan, ancient Farilya, has been always an important town for fishing, sponge diving, olive and tangerine growing. Unfortunately, some of those activities stopped in the recent years.

where is Gündogan?

 

Here in the North of the peninsula a fresh breeze often comes . A reason why many surfers prefer this bay. It is also a very attractive area for sponge diving and underwater photography.

When visiting Güngogan you perhaps want to make a boat trip to the nearby 'Big Rabbit Island' (Büyükavsan Adasi), the site of a Byzantine church with visible remains of frescos, estimated to date back to the ninth century.
