Things to Do

For greenery and seclusion, stroll out towards Kesire Point at the tip of the Turkbuku side of the bay or, on the eastern side of the bay, head towards Sapli Point.

Take to the crystal clear waters, swim, snorkel, sail or canoe; there are dozens of landing stages around the bay with bars and restaurants for refreshments. Chill out at one of the luxury beach clubs or hire a jet ski or motor boat; venture out into the bay where the yachts moored and around Almond Island.

There are harbours at both sides of the bay from which you can take a boat trip along the coast or to one of the idyllic little coves, such as Paradise Cove which is totally secluded between pine clad hills.

Out and About

Popular with celebrities and the jet set, Turkbuku bay has a great nightlife and high class restaurants but, as it is a place to be seen, you can expect it all to come with a bit of a price tag.

Golkoy bay is non-pretentious and is backed by more traditional and family run cafes and restaurants. In the evenings, the ones on the beach replace the sun loungers on the pontoons with dining tables and chairs, creating a stunning setting for your meal or drink.

The weekly markets are held in Turkbuku on Mondays and in Golkoy on Tuesday mornings.

Nearby Attractions
