Gümbet is the most popular holiday destination on the Bodrum Peninsula. Its long beach (the best on the peninsula). This bay is the nearest bay to Bodrum on the western side of the peninsula. This large bay, surrounded by holiday sites and hotels, adjoins Bodrum.
Gumbet is a lively beach resort and a popular tourist destination on the Aegean coast of Turkey, 3 km from famous Bodrum resort, in the Muğla Province. When a small and quiet village that peacefully inhabited this heavenly cove between the pine-forested mountains and glittering topaz-blue bay was discovered by the sun-hungry holidaymakers, it was quickly submerged by a myriad of excellent hotels, apartments, bars, cafes, pubs, restaurants, nightclubs, shops and tourist facilities.
This once unknown retreat has been transformed into a holidaymaker’s paradise and one of the most popular tourist resorts in Turkey, as its curved kilometres of golden sand, excellent restaurants, nightclubs, water sports opportunities and safe swimming make partygoers and families alike flock to this stunning resort. It also draws in people who are after the frenzied nightlife of neighbouring resort of Bodrum, but who want to have a room next to a beautiful beach to stroll out onto in the morning.
Fish and seafood lovers should head down to the beachfront where the impressive restaurants specialize in serving freshly caught fish that will be cooked to perfection and delivered to your table with a crispy salad.
You can anchor outside the buoys in depth of 5 to 8 m. The bottom is weed and sand. The east side of the bay, close to shore, is shallow and marshy. The western side of the bay is known as Asarlı Koy. Reefs extend about 40 m out from the the point on the north.
A pier on the east is always occupied.
