Gumusluk is a favourite peninsula village, 30 minutes drive from Bodrum. Its situation, on the site of the ancient city of Myndos has ensured that no large scale development has been allowed. Like many of the coastal villages it is divided in two, with one part inland and one part at the sea side. The local Divers will tell you that Gumusluk is the best place for snorkelling, in the calm waters of the sheltered bay all sorts of sunken ruins can be found, and there is a causeway, sometimes above water, sometimes below, to Rabbit Island where almost tame rabbits run around. Just roll up your trousers and wade out, the view from the Island is excellent! To one side of the headland is a sandy beach, with beach side restaurants and sunbeds, and a short walk through the little lanes with craft stalls and grocery shops will bring you to the other side where the famous fish restaurants, with their tempting displays of locally caught fish, are perched right on the shoreline. A small Byzantine church above the beach is now a cultural centre with a regular programme of concerts and exhibitions.
Gumusluk is famous for its fish restaurants. People from all over Bodrum Peninsula visit the place for having a great fish lunch or dinner. You choose it from the display, do the bargaining and they bring it to you the way you love it, broiled, grilled or fried.
No other area on the Turkish Aegean coast provides the visitor with the opportunity to experience traditional Turkish life only a few minutes away from the hustle and bustle of a modern tourist center.
One of the unique features of Bodrum as a holiday resort is that in addition to the active recreational opportunities available by day and the unequaled Bodrum nightlife, so many more tranquil bays, beaches and villages are available to enjoy.
You will find the little town of Turgetreis at the western tip of the Peninsula. Named after the famous admiral, Turgut Reis, this is a stroll town in its own right and combines a compact town center with several long sandy beaches. This part of the coast is favored by professional wind surfers as the winds are generally stronger here.
Alternatively, you can shop for bargains under the stars! Yalikivak, Turgetreis and Bodrum enjoy a setting amidst
Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city on the Mediterranean,and perhaps the best place in the world to get the feeling for what life was like in Roman times. As a strategic coastal gateway to the Eastern World, this Ionian refuge grew to be the second largest city in the Roman Empire. Legend has it that the Virgin Mary,accompanied by St. Paul, came to Ephesus at the end of her life,circa 37-45 AD. In 1967 Pope Paul VI visited the site, where a chapel now stands, and confirmed the authenticity of the legend. Also the Basilica of St. John is located near Ephesus. St. John is said to have lived the last years of his life here and after his death, a shrine was located over his grave.
Olu Denizis one of Turkeys most scenic coastal resorts. It is probably Turkeys most photographed beach!! The main beach is a wide stretch of white sand and shingle down to the crystal, turquoise waters. From the beach you can arrange your choice of activity which includes paragliding and many watersports.
We now have a Golf Course near the lake at Tuzla, which is approx 45 mins away.
In the quiet Bay of Gumusluk there are about 6 small Restaurants and Bars. Here, you can enjoy the delightful fresh caught fish from the local fishermen! or tradtional Turkish food.
From the terrace there is a wonderful view of Gumusluk Bay!
A car is not essential requirement, however, as there is so much to do and see in the area, it would be a missed opportunity not to have one.
