Gumbet Introduction

Gumbet is a popular resort close to Bodrum in the southwest corner of Turkey. It has changed dramatically from its sleepy fishing village origins and is now a very lively resort popular with both families and young singles. Its beaches are sandy and there is good provision of water sports. A plethora of bars, clubs and restaurants ensures that visitors will have a holiday to remember.

Why Go To Gumbet

If you are looking for sun, sea, sand, sporting opportunities and above all a lively nightlife, choose a Gumbet holiday. It has plenty to occupy visitors both on and off the beach and there are many ancient ruins within a short distance that are well worth visiting.

Gumbet is popular with families with small children and those who just want to relax in the sun. There is a wealth of sporting activities to satisfy the most energetic of holiday makers. Those with an interest in history will find the area fascinating. The nightlife in Gumbet is well known for its vitality and many young singles are attracted to the prospect of dancing all night followed by relaxation on a sunny beach.

When To Go To Gumbet

The holiday season lasts from early spring until late autumn when the temperature range is from the twenties to the high thirties. Although the summer period is the most popular, spring and autumn are good times to visit historical sites when the days are cooler.

Gumbet - The Place

Gumbet, lying very close to Bodrum on the peninsula, is a very popular resort with families and young people. It has a long sandy beach with waters that are warm and clear. The breeze across the bay, very welcome on a hot day, attracts many wind surfers and sailors who find conditions ideal. The beach is well supplied with small bars and cafes providing welcome refreshments. There are very many restaurants serving almost every type of cuisine, a good number of shops and markets, and the number of bars and clubs is beyond belief.

A day trip to Bodrum is a must as this busy resort has much to offer. The medieval Castle of St Peter with its amazing maritime museum is fascinating. Take a stroll through the marina with its charming boutiques, elegant yachts and take a break at the waterfront restaurants.

As you might expect, boat trips are widely available and you can even take your passport and enjoy a trip to the nearby Greek island of Kos.

A short journey from Gumbet is Ephesus, one of the best preserved archaeological sites in the world, which shows examples of Roman life that are second only to Pompeii.

A Gumbet holiday provides fun and entertainment for all the family in guaranteed sunshine.

Gumbet Nightlife

Gumbet may be busy by day but at night the place erupts with loud music. Flashing rope lights outline the many bars, discos and clubs sending invitations to those visitors looking for a place to party. Here the young and not so young can drink and dance the hours away until the sun rises once again.

Gumbet Shopping

There are ample opportunities for shopping in Gumbet at the centre behind the beach and in the markets. Remember to barter for your goods and you will be better satisfied with your bargains. Some of the best items to buy are leather goods, carpets and silver and gold jewellery.

Gumbet Eating

Gumbet can truly be said to provide food that caters for all tastes, from Chinese to Indian, from Italian to Thai, from Mexican to Japanese and from many other countries in-between. There are of course a large number of restaurants serving traditional Turkish fare which is very tasty and includes stuffed peppers and vine leaves, kebabs and of course feta cheese, olive and tomato salads. Rice dishes are also popular.
