Holidays to Yaliciftlik
Situated at the entrance to the Gulf of Gokova, this up and coming destination is still relatively unspoilt and a perfect holiday retreat for those looking for somewhere off tourists' radar. There are good hotels and restaurants to choose from and stunning bays and coves to visit. And with Bodrum and Gumbet just a short distance away, there are hot spots and noisier attractions if you fancy a change in scenery.
This unusual shrub covered spot is nose-shaped and has clear green waters. Small boats often dock to visit the village.
Yachts anchor on the south side and passengers take a swim in the beautiful sea. There are more coves nearby too.
Take a stroll through the olive trees in the Alazeytin district to see the ancient city's ruins on top of the hill.
Knights built the part underwater castle to protect Rhodes. Now a museum, visitors can still explore the dungeons.
Boat and yacht tours
Take a boat tour along the coastline to swim and snorkel, or bathe in the warm minerals waters at Black Island.
Jeep safari tour
From Gumbet take one of the daily 4x4 excursions for a different view of the countryside, waterfalls and villages.
Kupez fish and satsuma
Many local restaurants serve traditional dishes, such as the interesting combination of Kupez fish with satsuma.
Keep a look out on menus for prickly pears. The bright pink fruit is covered in spines and grows in arid rocky areas.
For a lively evening, head to the many bars and restaurants in Gumbet, particularly along the sea front.
For stunning views across Kumbahce Bay, visit the bar/restaurant in the shadow of Bodrum castle which holds 2000 people.
