Gümüslük, Bodrum, Muğla, 48970

The basics

Overlooking Gümüslük Bay and a rocky islet nicknamed Rabbit Island, Gümüslük is perfect for travelers wanting to escape Bodrum Peninsula’s busier resorts. Visitors laze on the beach, relax at the waterside restaurants, and savor the scenery and mellow pace. Other activities include boat trips and walking the semi-submerged causeway leading from the harbor to Rabbit Island. The walkway lines a crumbled wall that was once part of the ancient city of Myndos.

To make the most of a Gümüslük stay, consider hiking the hills for panoramic views over the village and Rabbit Island; renting a kayak or windsurf board, or joining a fishing or boat tour along the coast. Some tours from Bodrum include pickup and drop-off from Gümüslük hotels and whisk you to sights such as Ephesus and Pamukkale.

The ruins of ancient Myndos at Gümüslük

Gümüslük sits on the site of Myndos, an ancient port town that flourished during the second and first centuries BC before being destroyed by an earthquake. Some of Myndos’ remains still lie submerged in Gümüslük Bay, and are magnets for snorkelers. Don a mask and flippers to explore the waters off Rabbit Island and spot everything from fragments of painted walls to shards of age-old pottery and amphorae jars.
