Holidays to Gümbet

Want a holiday to a modern beach resort with a cosmopolitan vibe? On the Turkish Riviera, you’ll find amazing holidays to Gümbet.

Gümbet has a reputation for top-notch nightlife, with a superb choice of beachfront bars and late-night clubs. And if that’s not enough for you, you’re just a stone’s throw from energetic Bodrum town and its famous clubs, making this a great spot not just for families and couples, but for groups of mates too.

Find your favourite spot on the resort’s sand-and-shingle shores and make the most of that Mediterranean sun; it’s a great way to start the day. You’ll find plenty of beach bars and cafés nearby to keep you fuelled throughout the day. The pristine waters are ideal for swimming, and water sports enthusiasts can make the most of the thrilling activities available here. Why not plan a scuba diving trip and explore the colourful marine life that lies beneath? When the sun goes down, the top-notch nightlife takes centre stage; you’ll find dozens of bustling venues on Bar Street. And if you want to venture further afield, lively Bodrum town is just a short trip away. 

Gümbet has a kilometre-long ribbon of powdery-soft, golden sand. The beach is lined end-to-end with vibrant beach bars, cafés 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 excellent facilities and clean water, the beach has a clear, shallow shore perfect for swimming and splashing about. You’ll find fantastic water sports activities in Gümbet, from windsurfing to pedaloes and snorkelling. Gümbet’s large, colourful coral reef invites scuba divers, whether you’re a pro or a first-timer. 

Gümbet’s thriving nightlife scene is a close rival to that of neighbouring Bodrum. There’s a great mix of shows, clubs and bars here that come alive when the sun goes down. After dark, Bar Street is the place to be; it’s lined with busy pubs, Irish bars and huge dance clubs that stay open until sunrise. If you want to go at a slower pace, you’ll find plenty of restaurants on the main street, where you can sample Turkish cuisine. Why not try some traditional souvlaki (juicy lamb in a warm pitta)? 

If you’re ready for a day away from the beach, you can hop on a dolmus to Dedeman Aquapark; it's only a five-minute ride away. Popular with kids and grown-ups alike, there are plenty of water slides, swimming pools and water bikes to keep you all busy, plus dedicated spots for little ones. Take a 10-minute dolmus ride to neighbouring Bodrum town (the capital of the Turkish Riviera) and you’ll discover a charming blend of old and new. Take your time exploring one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus) or head over to the super-chic marina for a lively night out. 

RESORTS NEAR GUMBET


GUMBET IS BEST FOR...

Beach lovers: The resort’s sand-and-shingle shores are among the Bodrum Peninsula’s most popular. The kilometre-long Blue Flag beach is gorgeous, so grab a beanbag or sun lounger and soak up the sun.

Clubbers: The loud and lively nightlife begins on the beach; you can sip drinks at sunset before starting your night at Bar Street. Gümbet gives Bodrum town a run for its money when it comes to serious clubbing.

GETTING AROUND

By dolmus: These local public minibuses are a great way to get around. Tickets are cheap and you can hop on and off as and when you like.  

By taxi: Look out for licensed yellow taxis; you’ll have no trouble finding one in the resort. Bear in mind that they run on a meter and rates are higher at night. It’s worth asking for an estimate before you get in, or get your hotel to pre-book a taxi for you and agree the price before you set off.
