Though officially it remains a suburb of Bodrum,
Gumbet has grown to become a resort in its own right,
with its own special character, temperament and appeal.
Some of the most popular hotels of the region are to
be found in and around Gumbet Bay.
The long sandy beach is undoubtedly a great attraction,
but it's the combination of the sea, sun, sand and fun
that makes Gumbet so popular.
The fun part of course, is its
rollicking night life lived in its multitude of
pubs, bars and discos, some boasting air-conditioning
A different kind of fun is
to be had on the water where water sports are
practiced with flair.
Because the beach is within an easy walk from
most hotels and the central area, Gumbet is also a favorite
with many families with children. It's a place
favored the young and young at heart.
