Paragliding and air sports in Gokova
Lying on the south coast of Bodrum peninsula and on the north of Datca peninsula, in the province of Mugla, the Gulf of Gökova is a fascinating corner of Turkey offering lovely views with charming combinations of colors. Pretty shorelines covered with forests offer every tone of green, while the sea has a wide range of blues. The mountains shelter the setting sun under hues of red and yellow. If you would like to witness all these beauties, there are opportunities to sail along these coastlines, and a boat trip on this gulf will make your holiday as beautiful as the place itself.
Today Gokova Gulf is a very popular destination for the blue cruise, many Gulet and bareboat charters, as well as private yachts, sail and anchor in many small bays within the gulf. Some of the major towns in the gulf are Gokova town, Akyaka, and Ula. There are few archaeological ruins around the gulf, such as Ceramus near Oren town and Cedrae in Sedir island.

“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 Gokova, can’t beat the scenery.” – Magda C
