Gümbet, Turkey, near Bodrum

Gümbet is the next bay (and town) to the west over the hill and beyond the windmills from Bodrum (map).

Once just an alternative beach for visitors to BodrumGümbet is now a seaside resort destination in its own right.

The town of Gümbet has its own hotels—dozens of them—as well as holiday villas, shops, restaurants and other services. Here’s how to find them:

You really don’t need to leave Gümbet during your holiday here, but of course most people spend some time in Bodrum and take excursions to other towns around the Bodrum peninsula such as TurgutreisYalıkavak and Göltürkbükü.

Gümbet‘s beach is actually better—longer and wider—than the smaller beaches in Bodrum proper, but the town of Gümbet lacks Bodrum’s antique charm, not to mention its antique monuments.
