Although almost joint to Bodrum itself, Gumbet is fast becoming a self-contained resort. Some of the most popular hotels in the region are to be found in and around Gumbet Bay.
The sandy beach, a mecca for sun warshippers, is within easy walking distance of the town and most hotels, making Gumbet a favourite spot for families with children. Cafes and bars are proliferate along the beach, and there are plenty of fun watersports for the young and the young at heart.
Gumbet's night life is second to none, several air-conditioned and sound proofed discos and a multitude of pubs and bars boasting the cheapest beer to be found on the peninsula.
