Gundogan Village is located on the Bodrum Peninsula in the South West corner of Turkey separated from Greece by the beautiful Aegean Sea. The climate is quite varied here with mild but sometimes wet winters although averaging more than 300 days sunshine. The winter rainfall means that this area is pleasantly green with forests and beautiful flowers and plants with the beautiful bougainvillea very prevalent in the area. The sun shines from April to Oct with soaring temperatures of 40 C in July and August but Spring / Early Summer and Autumn are not as hot. Days are long and sunny and nights are warm and balmy with a gentle breeze ever present in Gundogan due to the shape of the harbour.
Gundogan, known in ancient times as Farilya, has always been an important town for fishing, sponge diving, olive and tangerine growing. Unfortunately, some of those activities stopped in the recent years.
The main body of the town is situated inland on the major highway running between Yalikavak and Golturkbuku. Caves, Wind mills, Cisterns, Rock Cut Monasteries bear witness to the great past of Gundogan.

Yali Mosque with its attractive Minaret and wind Mills are also very interesting to see. Gundogan bay is also suitable for sailing and surfing, sponge diving and underwater photography.
