19th Oludeniz Air Games Festival – Opens High in the Sky at the 1700m take off point on Babadag, at 11am on the 16th October finishing on the 21st. If you prefer to be safely with your feet on the ground (or sand) enjoy all from the main beach on a nice sunbed close to the sea.
Now the second largest Festival of its type in the World, with paragliders from just about everywhere showing off their skills, whether they are professional or amateur, all are worth watching as they do their spectacular stunts, in a tremendously beautiful setting. Base jumpers plunge towards the sea, bringing many a heart to mouths, before whipping up their parachutes and gliding down to safety.
The atmosphere in Oludeniz is really buzzing during the air games, everyone seems to be so cheerful and there is a great feeling of energy in the air. The beach is an ideal place to watch them from, as you can usually get a nice tan, nip off for a spot of lunch and not miss anything as the paragliders land on the beach/promenade in full view of everywhere on the front.
In the early evenings there are still jumpers to watch, later the bars are buzzing and the paragliders mix in with the crowds creating a great party atmosphere, there are usually stalls on the beach/promenade selling everything from ice cream to commemorative t shirts and goods and of course, you may see Cyril or other members of his family watching the games too or just having a late night snack and a bit of a paaaartay.
From your apartment for sale in Hisaronu, your villas for sale in Ovacik, your holiday home in Fethiye, your turkish property for sale in Oludeniz. What a great few days out.
