Go Camping in Nature

There are two areas in Gümüldür where you can camp between green and blue: Gümüldür recreational area and Gümüşsuyu recreational area.

There is a buffet, toilet, electricity, picnic units, country casino and entertainment area in the Gümüldür recreational area. 300 tents can be set up in the area where the daily visitor capacity is 2500 people. The Gümüşsuyu recreational area, which is also located in Gümüldür, has a capacity of 500 people and 50 beds.

Taste the Tangerine

The tangerine of Gümüldür is very famous for its color and smell. If you visit Gümüldür in winter, do not forget to taste the tangerines as they are just collected from the trees.

You can also stop by the Traditional Gümüldür Tangerine Festival held every November, listen to various concerts, see the “Miss Tangerine" and “The Best Tangerine” competitions, and dance for hours.

Say Goodbye to the Sun in a Fish Restaurant

You can turn your route towards the fish restaurants on the shore when sweet tiredness falls on you in the evening. While you can taste fresh fish and other seafood caught on the same day in these restaurants, you can relieve all your tiredness with a beautiful sunset view.
