Fellow travellers say Gumbet is great for…
The resort of Gumbet is found on the magnificent Aegean coast of Turkey, close to the larger resort of Bodrum. The whole of the Aegean coastline is popular with tourists worldwide, thanks to its pristine beaches, clear blue sea, and consistent sunshine. Another big draw is the Ancient history in which the Aegean coastline is steeped. Bodrum was where the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, used to be before earthquakes destroyed it. Package holidays in Gumbet have become increasingly popular over recent years, especially among young people owing to the town’s Club 18-30 resort.
A seafront promenade curves around the picturesque beach in the town, and low-rise whitewashed building extend back into the rolling hills behind Gumbet. On first impressions, you could be forgiven for thinking that package holidays in Gumbet would be a tranquil and relaxing affair, but this is far from the case. During the day tourist are out water skiing, parasailing or jet skiing; though some do prefer to take it easy under the shade of a parasol on the beach.
Holidays in Gumbet are all about fun in the sun by day, and fun in the bars and clubs by night. If it is culture you are after then staying in Bodrum is a better choice. Gumbet has grown considerably thanks to the cash package holiday deals have brought in, so many of the restaurants cater for an international crowd. Curry houses, Italian pizzerias, and fast food joints make regular appearances in the town, but there are also many Turkish kebab stalls and other restaurants serving traditional Mediterranean fare. The nightlife is easy to find here, with the majority of bars and clubs found on the conveniently named ‘Bar Street,’ so visitors have little chance of missing the action.
