Gumbet holidays will find you relaxing on the beach, soaking up the sun and enjoying the bustling nightlife on the south west coast of Turkey and the Bodrum peninsular.
The original village lies nearly buried inside a vibrant modern resort, yet the white washed buildings set amongst the lush green hills rolling down to the horse shoe shaped bay help keep the beautiful village scene alive. Gumbet holidays offer a definite party atmosphere with bars and cafes lining the beach and waiters scuttling backwards and forwards with much needed refreshments.
Banana boats and doughnut rings provide spills and thrills for the energetic and there's always wind surfing, water skiing and parascending if you feel particularly brave. Families will enjoy the soft sands, warm waters and camel rides available on the beach. Nearby Aquapark Dedeman provides a fun day out for all the family with rides and slides for all ages.
Take a leisurely boat trip over to the Greek island of Kos, or drive to the ancient city of Ephesus, although a two hour journey, it is home to the world's largest collection of classical architecture and definitely worth the trip. Nearby Bodrum is a little closer and houses the Castle of St Paul and Museum of Underwater Archaeology, with a fascinating shipwreck dating back to the 14th century BC.
