Paragliding and air sports in Didim
Today Yenihisar is the area of Didim (or Didyma) and Altinkum and is surrounded by several ancient sites, the most famous of which is the Temple of Apollo built in the 8th century BC and is one of the most visited tourist sites in Turkey; it is also close to the ancient sites of Miletos and Ephesus . It was once a renowned Hellenic oracle centre (second to that of Delphi) and is mentioned in a hymn written by Homer dedicated to Apollo. The nearby sacred natural spring is where Leto is believed to have given birth to the twins, Artemis and Apollo, who were the sons of Zeus.
The road leading from here to the harbour was once lined with ancient statues that were taken in 1858 and put on display at the British Museum in London. Yenihisar’s resort area is 1km from Didim itself and sits and in a large unspoilt and quiet region and has several basic B&B’s, hotels and restaurants that are considerably cheaper than can be found in the nearby Altinkum Beach area and resort of Didim.

“This was an unforgettable experience. You get a really nice overview of the city and all the pilots are so kind. I did it with 3 friends and a nice little detail is you get walkie talkies to talk to each other while paragliding which we found very cool. It’s more than worth the price!!” – Jolan L.
“I had a wonderful experience with Marcos and his staff. Marcos arranged for round trip transportation from Lara Beach to the take off area. Weather could not have been better. Davut, the pilot, was extremely confident and experienced. I felt very safe with him flying. The moment of take off is simply breathtaking. If you are going to try paragliding once, do it in Didim, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
