Gumbet

Gumbet is set in the bay of Gumbet which is well known for its wide offering of water sports. It is well established as a holiday resort for those seeking leisurely days at the beach and lively neon-lit non-stop nights out.

Beaches

The long sands of Gumbet Beach stretch for approx 1km and, in the shelter of the bay, the waters are clear and shallow. There are plenty of water based activities available such as pedaloes and banana boats, parasailing and windsurfing, jet skiing and water skiing, diving and snorkelling, ringos and flying fish.

Things to Do

There is a free shuttle service to the Dedeman Aqua Park which is open daily from the end of May to the end of September. The park is set in landscaped grounds with relaxation areas, a restaurant, a good choice of thrill slides, a wave river, pools and areas for children.

See the windmills which stand on the hill on the headland between Gumbet and Bodrum. They date back to the 18th century and were in use right up until the 1970s. The panoramic view over Gumbet and Bodrum Bay is lovely. You can also enjoy extensive views from the Roman Amphitheatre which is on the main road, behind the resort, heading towards Bodrum (approx 2km from Gumbet harbour).

Take a scuba diving course with one of the local diving centres or, if you are certified, explore some of the many dive sites in the area. Stroll along the waterfront and choose from the many boats which run day trips around the islands and popular beaches.

Out and About

There are plenty of shops and supermarkets and hundreds of bars and restaurants behind the beach area. The shops offer endless opportunities to pick up traditional Turkish homeware, clothes and jewellery. The weekly market is held on Sundays.

Restaurants cater to all tastes, the bars are very lively and the discos are open until dawn throughout the summer.

Nearby Attractions

The resorts of Bitez and Gumbet occupy the neighbouring bays and are easily accessible by local dolmus. Visit Bitez for quieter beaches and evenings or go into Gumbet for shopping, history and nightlife. Bitez market is held on a Friday and Gumbet has two weekly markets; Tuesday for textiles, Fridays for food and local produce.

We also show you the prices of our cheap holidays right from the start, with no hidden charges. All unavoidable fees and taxes are included in the price, not added on later in the booking process. We even include basic baggage charges in all our flight prices.
