The modern beach resort of Gumbet sits a stone’s throw from energetic Bodrum. Gumbet gives its well-known neighbour a run for its money when it comes to beaches and nightlife – think one full kilometre of silk white-gold sand, lots of exciting water sports and nights on Bar Street. The clubbing scene is fantastic, with a top choice of beachfront bars, late night clubs and English pubs.

Gumbet is one of Turkey’s great party destinations, close to the equally lively Bodrum Town, making it the ideal place for a fun, sunny getaway.

It’s also well-known for its beautiful Blue Flag beach. With golden sand and calm, warm water, this is the ultimate chill-out spot. All along the shoreline you’ll find great bars and restaurants too, so you won’t have to wander far to grab a drink or a bite to eat.

During the days, you can get out onto the water by boat, and pop across to the nearby Camel Beach with its trendy bars and eateries. Gumbet has plenty of watersport activities to keep you entertained and neighbouring Bodrum Town has lots of shops and restaurants to explore. To round off the day, grab a bite to eat and a cocktail, ready to watch the sun go down on the beachfront. Then head off to Gumbet’s Bar Street to party the night away.

It’s always warm and sunny in Gumbet, so you’ll always get the chance to enjoy some well-deserved fun in the sun. The winter temperatures dip to around 15°C , and in the summer the mercury pushes towards 30 °C . It’s also busiest in the peak summer months, making this prime party season. The spring and autumn are more laid-back, but still with lots of lovely sun.

Everything is close at hand in Gumbet, so you won’t be far from either the bar or the beach, wherever you choose to stay. It’s also conveniently laid out, with the main bars clustering around the memorably-named Bar Street. If you’d like a slightly more laid-back vibe, choose somewhere along the beach. And the centre of town is the place to be for easy access to all the shops and the liveliest bars.
