Gundogan has a wealth of history, having been one of the first places on the Bodrum peninsula that was settled by humans thousands of years ago, initially named Farilyais. And for those with a sense of adventure, Gundogan is home to the amazing Peynir Çiçegi Cave in which stalagmites and stalactites can be found, long sparkling spears that tell of just how ancient this small fishing town really is. Another historic site to discover is Apostol Island which lies a short boat ride away from Gundogan and holds the fascinating remnants of a 9th Century Byzantine monastery that will leave any budding archaeologist awe struck.
Just off shore from the phenomenal powder white sand beach, Gundogan’s bay is long and offers a great opportunity for serious swimmers to really push themselves. The bay is also perfect for experienced sailors and surfers who want a challenge against unpredictable winds and currents. The beauty of the beach under the glowing Turkish sun stretches around the bay and is one of the longest in all of Bodrum, where fragrant tangerine, olive and pine trees stand, adding a bold splash of colour along with the colourful flowers to the otherwise bottle green location.
Gundogan is great for visitors who like having a range of options as to resort locations as Gundogan can offer both modest and luxurious hotels scattered along the coast. Similarly, cafes and restaurants are built on jetties around the bay allowing customers to watch people swim by or dip their feet in the water. As well as water sports and the beautiful locations near Bodrum, the bay at Gundogan has a ferry service which allows passage to Altinkum/Didim, where playful seals and dolphins frolic alongside the boat. Gundogan overall is a fantastic location for people looking for an active and yet historic location where the best of Turkish holidays combine, a fantastic beach, friendly people and traditional culture as well as modern luxuries.
