My travel note today – about Gumbet (Gümbet).
Every time I visit Gümbet in the evening, I think, how do people live here? It’s not about those who going to this city to break away, but about the locals. In the evening there is such a sound porridge that you want to get out as quickly as possible. Sleeping or sitting with a cup of tea on the balcony is impossible. Therefore, it seems to me, it is better to settle in a hotel somewhere on the coast, and then go to have fun.
Clubs for every taste and purse
Here everyone will find exactly “his own” place. We visited few of them, but in my opinion, the Sapphire club is the most attractive. Open air club, good music – mix of Turkish and world hits, quality alcohol and excellent hookah. Dance and have fun!
The club is always full, so the phrase “in crowdedness and no offense” suits here excellent. And if you not a fan of a crowd, choose other places, with tables and symbolic dance floor.
In some of them, Turkish pop performers, as well as stars with a worldwide reputation, create their concerts, for example – INNA.
In general it is an unremarkable village, consisting of hotels, guest houses and beach clubs. The first line belongs to apartments and hotels with an all-inclusive system, farther from the sea – the cheaper accommodation. There no historical and cultural attractions here. The only thing that reminds of the history of these places is the grave of the famous Turkish writer, “The Fishermen of Halicarnassus” – Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı.
The beaches sandy, but semi-clean and tidy, compared to other bays. Although it is convenient to swim with children, a gentle entry into the water. To the west of Gümbet there are several miniature bays, with a sandy bottom and clear water. For its frequency, this place is called the Aquarium, it can reached by water. Sometimes a visit to this bay is included in the program of day tours on a yacht. But to come here, the place is really beautiful.
There no problems with eating places, there are plenty to choose from: beer pubs, fish restaurants, Chinese cuisine, Turkish national cuisine. For a less decent choice of products you need to go to the nearest supermarket Migros or Metro. For clothes and shoes – to shopping centers Oasis, Midtown (Midtown) or Avenue (Avenue). But here there are several pharmacies and clinics nearby.
Once, but need to visit
The most important thing that attracts travelers to Gümbet is a favorable location, 24-hour entertainment, sandy beaches and surroundings. Also important closeness to the airport and the center of Bodrum, all this attracts tourists of different ages, the season lasts approximately from the end of May to the end of September. Most of the tourists – from England, Netherlands, Germany and the Scandinavian countries, but Russian tourists come every year.
