Places to see in Gumbet are impressive. Holidaymakers may find variety of great sights in Gumbet. The Gumbet beach is a kilometre of golden sand which curves around the bay. There isn’t a type of person who wouldn’t find a second home here; if you want to relax in the sun on a towel, sunbed or under an umbrella, if you want to partake in extreme water sports or just need some spray to brush off last night’s hangover, if you want to bring the family to take advantage of the safe swimming and shallow waters, or if you just want to sit in a beach bar and chat to other holidaymakers, the Gumbet beach will cater for you.
If you’re bringing the family, your kids will never be short of things to do. The safe waters, soft sand and abundance of shade make the perfect exotic playground, and they can take a camel ride or nearby Kargi Beach. If you can drag them away from the beach, the Bodrum Aqua Park will give them something to remember, as it has a massive 23 waterslides, a 350 metre river with artificial waves, variety of pools, a wave pool and many restaurants with entertainment, all within an expansive 65,000 square metres. This park is located on the outskirts of Ortakent neighbouring Bodrum and is easily accessible via bus.
You can bike, hike or rent a car and drive around the surrounding hills and mountains to find breath-taking views of this lushly-forested area of Turkey. You can hire out a boat to visit the untouched islands nearby, and visit some Turkish villages which have avoided the rampant and unstoppable path of the tourist industry and have maintained all of their charming and traditional style, as well as being much more peaceful than the Gumbet or Bodrum resorts.
Gumbet holidays don’t have much in the way of sights, but if you catch a short Dolmus bus to Bodrum, you can visit the many regal and dominating structures the tourist resort has been built around. The main attractions here include the 16 century Bodrum castle, the Museum of Underwater Archaeology and the Mausoleum. If you’re willing to go on a day trip, the ancient city of Ephesus is within reach, which is home to some of the most well preserved Roman ruins and is the most extensive collection of classical Roman architecture in the world.
