It's hard to believe that Gumbet used to be a laid-back fishing village, as today it has made its name as one of the most popular tourist resorts in Turkey. Gumbet holidays offer a lively atmosphere, great restaurants and nightlife that will make the neighbouring towns green with envy. Add to this golden sunshine, soft white sands and spectacular views and you're set for a perfect summer holiday in Turkey.
Gumbet’s glorious Blue Flag beach is the most popular on the Bodrum Peninsula, and it’s so for all good reasons, offering an abundance of watersports, restaurants and bars along the sandy stretch - plus you can pinch a free sun lounger, as long as you buy a drink. Flitting between the town and the beach is easy as you’re just a 10-minute drive away from the heart of Bodrum Town, so you'll have the best of both worlds during your holidays to Gumbet. The town serves up a mixture of cultural and contemporary charm with historical sights, colourful markets and a handful of bustling bars - providing enough variety to please visitors of all ages.
International Mila Bodrum Airport is the nearest airport to Gumbet and is located just 36km from the city centre. Roads to Gumbet are also well connected to almost all of the major hotspots in Turkey. Enjoy a traditional Turkish getaway with the family and stay in a blissful beachfront hotel or gather your friends together for a weekend of fun in the sun.
