Gumusluk is the best place in
, although maybe a bit quiet for most people. It is the perfect place for a romantic getaway. There are some really nice apartments, which are cheap to rent.
… Now a nature and wildlife preserve, this area is a real paradise with its rare and beautiful setting, and with a history going back to 3500 B.C. The town centre, positioned on the lakeside, is unlike any holiday resort. Only on Mondays when there is a large market do you get an influx of both Turks from the surrounding villages and tourists who often arrive by boat. For those seeking peace and quiet it is an ideal destination any season. The Lake of Köycegiz is described as "as smooth as glass" till noon and suitable for wind surfing in the afternoon. It contains almost every kind of seafood including crab. You can take a trip by boat to Dalyan over the lake and through the natural labyrinth like channel, walled with reeds which leads to the sea or if you prefer by the road which is lined with perfumed frankincense trees.
I went to
last year and it was FANTASTIC! Both me and my boyfriend had the best time EVER!
I've been to
2 years running and it is excellent! Already booked again for July 2004, can't wait. Also take British Pounds with you. You'll find it easier if you can't get used to the MILLIONS in Turkish currency!
I live in Gümbet in
and I love the whole peninsula -- it's fantastic. It's the best thing I ever did, moving here from England!
It was a big mistake for me to have a vacation in
. One person stole my bag by snatching. However, when I went to the police station for this incident, no policemen are concerned with my situation. Never, ever come to Bodrum.
