Gumusluk, meaning ‘of silver’ is the harbour of ancient Myndos and is one of the oldest settlements on the peninsula. This area is steeped in history and rich in archaeology both on land and underwater. Bring your snorkel because there is so much to see just below the water where parts of the historic city subsided. The centre – a small fishing village – has kept it’s charm thanks to strictly enforced building prohibitions. This photogenic small waterfront is home to about a dozen fish restaurants and just a few craft shops and is an ideal spot for a bit of peace and quiet. The only noise is the gentle lapping of the sea on the shoreline. From here you can walk across the sunken causeway to Rabbit Island.
Yalikavak: The once sleepy fishing village of Yalikavak has now become one of, if not, the most elite areas on the Bodrum Peninsula. The cobbled streets of the old town still retains its charm and culture and offers a variety of restaurants, cafe bars and traditional Gullet cruises. If you enjoy eating fresh fish then you will be at home here as there are many renowned fish restaurants dotted along the water’s edge. In stark contrast, the new Palmarina is home to luxury yachts of some of the world’s rich and famous. It has trendy bars, designer boutiques and first class restaurants and has quickly become the place to be seen in Bodrum.

For those of you who would like to play a round of golf in Bodrum Turkey, there is a course in Tuzla and in Ortakent.
The area is steeped in history and this is still evident right across the peninsula. Take time to visit the more obvious sites such as St. Peter’s Castle, The Mausoleum, The Amphi Theatre and Myndos Gate.
There are various ways are to explore the peninsula. You can cover the whole peninsula by car in just a few hours by following the coastal road. Daily Gullet cruises, available from most resorts, visit some of the beautiful bays and coves. Alternatively you can visit each village individually by public transport called a Dolmus.
The sun shines endlessly in Bodrum and after sundown you will enjoy the millions of stars in the clear sky. There is no humidity, and rain in Bodrum during the summer (April to October) is a very rare occurrence. There is no ‘winter’ in Bodrum, frost and snow never touches the Aegean. Of course we do have rain in ‘winter’ but mostly the days are sunny and bright. You have to experience it to truly appreciate the attraction of Bodrum.
