Gumusluk is located midway along the western coast of the peninsula and the coastline here boasts stunning sea views. Historically, many fishermen settled and made their homes here and it is no different today with the azure vista making it very popular with locals and tourists alike.
Tucked into a picturesque and secluded cove is Gumusluk Fishing Village, a timeless reminder of bygone days. Here you can enjoy the evening sun going down from the waterfront restaurants serenaded by the gentle lapping of the tide. Feast on freshly caught local fish and seafood and meander through the street stalls offering unusual hand made gifts. Daylight hours also have their simple pleasures to offer with a sandy beach, colourful harbour, and rich archaeological history.
"Gumusluk" means "of silver" and derives its name from the silver mines situated behind the ancient city of Myndos, the site on which modern Gumusluk now stands. Much of the ancient city now lies beneath the waters surface and the remains can be seen whilst snorkelling although the area's archaeological status forbids diving with tanks. The sunken walls of the ancient city now form a causeway whereby you can reach Rabbit Island which is set snugly inside Gumusluk cove.
THE BODRUM PENINSULA
The Bodrum Peninsula is located on the southwest corner of Turkey at the point where the Aegean Sea fuses with The Mediterranean. For many hundreds of years the region has fascinated the minds and captivated the hearts of its visitors, none more so than the Turkish author Cevat Sakir who reminiscing about his first sighting wrote: "The sea cracked upon the horizon without warning like a vast blue thundering infinity, it infiltrated through alleys and courtyards with a shimmering transparent light. It sparkled to an incomprehensible depth full of yearning and beauty and terror."
On the final approach into Bodrum Town, today's visitor is greeted by a warning penned by Cevat Sakir himself:
"Hello, if you come to this top of the hill you will see Bodrum.
Don't think that you will return as the very same person as you came.
To all those who came before you it happened the same.
They lost their heart in Bodrum and left it."
"The Fisherman of Halicarnassus" (1890 - 1973) Cevat Sakir Kabaagacli
The promise of long balmy days of sun, sand and sea in a typical Mediterranean climate has long attracted summer visitors to the Peninsula, but the once closely guarded secret that Bodrum has much more to offer is now out! Autumn, winter and spring months all pass by at a much less frenetic pace, at a warm and pleasant temperature, with a greater local intimacy and with each new season's own inimitable style.
Autumn is heralded with the Bodrum Cup, an annual event for amateur and professional yachtsmen alike, a sight to behold with hundreds of wooden yachts under full canvas. The sea is still enticingly warm for swimming, historical sites become a pleasure to visit, and of course there are the end-of-season sales!
Winter is a time to relax, renew friendships, and recoup the energy depleted during the summer season. Waterfront cafes overflow with local residents playing backgammon, sophisticated restaurants offer breakfast buffets and brunch on the beach, and Christmas and New Year are celebrated with flair!
As the scent of flower blossom fills the spring air, the hills and valleys refreshed by the winter's rain are resplendent. Cool, sunny days are ideal for horse riding and hiking and the countryside teems with verdant new life beckoning the palette and artistry of the painter. The Peninsula awakens from its winter sleep and adorns itself ready for the influx of visitors promised by another summer season.
Besides the obvious holiday orientated activities offered during the summer months, the Bodrum Peninsula caters for a diverse range of interests all year round. Dependant on the weather, yachts can still be chartered for the day or to sail the "Turquoise Coast", ferries to neighbouring islands continue, and there are many sporting activities which have clubs holding regular meetings and organised training sessions.
Outdoor water based sports include: fishing, sailing, diving and windsurfing whilst for more sedate water activities try indoor swimming pools, Turkish baths and health spas. There are also a number of public and privately run fitness centres, dance lessons, gymnasiums, tennis & basketball courts, football pitches, cycling and hiking clubs, golf courses and horse riding ranches.
The less energetic amongst you might enjoy an hour or two at one of the many art & design exhibitions, concerts, jazz festivals, Latin evenings, quiz nights, yoga classes, language schools, animal welfare societies or mother and toddler groups. Historians and archaeologists will find that the Bodrum Peninsula's long, rich, turbulent past under the hands of many ancient and modern civilizations has left its mark both on the landscape and the annuls of history - and well worth investigating.
From as early as 1100 BC the Peninsula was an area of immense global importance due to its strategic location within world trade routes, but lost its pre-eminence in 400 AD with the prosperity of the Byzantine Empire and its capital Constantinople. Over the centuries the area has been conquered by Ancient Greeks, Persians, Byzantines, Egyptians, Ottomans, and as recently as 1919 the Italians. After the War of Independence in 1922 a peaceful tranquillity descended over this idyllic area which mixed together intoxicatingly with its climate and outstanding natural beauty resulting in its emergence as a tourist destination in 1985.
Bodrum town with its vivacious, Bohemian atmosphere adoringly drapes itself around an impressive medieval castle which guards the entrance to the town's dazzlingly blue and markedly different east and west bays. A majestic part of the Bodrum skyline, The Castle of St. Peter built in 1402, now serves as a museum specializing in underwater archaeology. During the summer months the castle is also host to many open-air concerts and the annual International Ballet Festival.
Amid the myriad of winding, narrow, white-walled alleyways east of the castle, outdoor bazaars and craft stalls nestle side by side with charming local boutiques and top brand name stores. The town's weekly clothing and food markets offer a more traditional shopping experience, whilst in the Marina on the west bay, chic and prestigious designer label shops adorn the waters edge.
Although Bodrum is not particularly well known for its beach, there is a long, thin expanse of sand that lines the east bay and enjoys clear, tide less sea
