Gumusluk - Gümüşlük - Rabbit Island

The peaceful village of Gümüşlük is one of the oldest settlements on the Bodrum peninsula.

It stands on the site of the ancient Carian city of Myndos whose seafront sections slid into the sea in some long-forgotten earthquake. Today these remains are a magnet for snorkelers, in 2006 one hundred archaeologists descended on Gümüşlük to start excavating the land, so far they have uncovered further walls & mosaics.

Today Gümüşlük retains a small-scale, relaxed & magical atmosphere thanks to strictly enforced building prohibitions, designed to protect the ancient site. The charming flower-bedecked houses follow the curve of a small & pretty bay. Gümüşlük is the perfect antidote for modern-day living, it’s a great place to unwind in an idyllic setting. The wonderful shelter of the bay provides a natural harbour for yachts & local fishing boats, the waterfront restaurants enjoy a reputation for excellent fresh fish amongst the Turkish as far away as Istanbul. Gümüşlük is famed amongst many famous Turkish actors, artists & musicians who frequent the bay during the summer months.
