Period From May to November
The wind in Gokova Gulf starts in May when the weather temperature gets warmer and continues its rate until November. There is almost no windless day during this 6 months period of the year.
The wind starts as a calm sea-breeze at around 9 a.m. and increases up to 18-20 knot with the influx of air temperature.
The sea is shallow for 150 metre and the bottom is purely sand. For the first 50 metre the water is completely free of waves and calm.
Right on the east side of Akyaka Town, Akcapinar Beach can be considered as the best spot in Turkey to learn and improve kiteboarding with its 3.5 kilometre long unpopulated, structure-free, tree-free and rock-free coast line; and its 150 m shallow water.
