The track starting from Konak Pier and extending to Alsancak Train Station is accompanied by a magnificent view of the Gulf.
Forest It is one of the rare places to run which is surrounded by nature and the sea at the same time. The best part of your run will be that moment when you’ll jump into the sea when you’re finished! The forest offers asphalt and dirt trails. We recommend you to run these trails in the daylight.
