The clubbing scene is fantastic, with a top choice of beachfront bars, late night clubs and English pubs.

Find a good spot on Gumbet’s golden sands and make the most of that Mediterranean sun, with lots of bars and cafes a short stroll away to keep you going. The water is beautifully warm and clear, ideal for swimming, and has an exciting selection of water sports, so you can speed across the sea on water skis or plan a scuba diving excursion to see the vibrant coral reef. Take a wander through the town to explore the buzzing local markets and souvenir shops, or grab some new clothes for the nights out. Gumbet’s nightlife scene is legendary, with dozens of venues bringing Bar Street to life after dark. 

Gumbet has a kilometre-long ribbon of powdery-soft, golden sand. The beach is lined end-to-end with vibrant beach bars, cafes and shops, plus waterfront hotels. There are lots of sun loungers and umbrellas to go around, and large beanbag cushions are popular here for sunbathing in comfort. Awarded a Blue Flag for its upkeep, the beach has a clear, shallow shore perfect for swimming and splashing about. You’ll find fantastic water sports activities in Gumbet, from high-octane banana boats, water skiing and parasailing to pedaloes and snorkelling. Gumbet’s large, colourful coral reef invites scuba divers, whether you’re a pro or a first-timer. 

Gumbet’s thriving nightlife rivals neighbouring Bodrum, with a top mix of shows, clubs and bars. Bar Street is the main nightlife zone, lined with lively pubs, Irish bars and big dance clubs open until the early hours. If you’re after somewhere chilled out to start the night, the best places in Gumbet are on the beach, where you can grab a cocktail and get in the mood. The main road is full of restaurants and places to eat, with a variety of international food plus authentic Turkish cuisine. A local favourite is lamb kebabs, or souvlaki, tasty grilled meat and vegetables in a warm pita.  

If you fancy a day away from the beach, hop on a dolmus and in five minutes you’re at the Dedeman Aquapark. Popular with kids and adults, the park has a choice of water slides, swimming pools and water bikes, plus activities for little kids and several places to eat. The resort is packed with shops and souvenir stands, and if you’re thinking of getting a gift to bring home, the best place to go in Gumbet is the Sunday market. Market days have a great atmosphere with food stalls, clothes and handmade souvenirs.
