Are you planning on taking a holiday in Turkey this year? Maybe you’re thinking about booking a villa holiday on the Bodrum Peninsula? Well, if you are then Gumusluk may well be the perfect destination for you. Located in the sunny south west corner of Turkey, Gumusluk is a perfect holiday destination with something to offer everyone.
What makes Gumusluk different? Well, it’s partly its location, partly its history and partly its friendly and welcoming population. The resort is situated on the grounds of an ancient city, known as Myndos. Because of this Gumusluk is protected against over-development, which means unlike many other holiday destinations, it has not been over-exposed. But if there’s one thing that sets Gumusluk apart from other comparable destinations, it’s the people who live in the village itself. They are some of the friendliest and most-accommodating people you could ever wish to meet, and will go to almost any length to make sure your stay is enjoyable.
The atmosphere in Gumusluk is laid back and relaxed, thanks mainly to the strict enforcement of building palling regulations. The charming flower-decked houses follow the curve of a small and pretty bay. Gumusluk is the perfect location for anyone wanting to escape from the day-to-day trappings of modern life. Its idyllic setting is perfect for relaxing and unwinding. The wonderful shelter of the bay provides a natural harbor for yachts and local fishing boats. Gumusluk is also home to some of the most renowned fish restaurants in Turkey.
What sort of weather can you expect during your stay in Gumusluk? Well, being a southern European destination you’re guaranteed wall-to-wall sunshine. From May through to October Gumusluk barely gets a drop of rain. Average temperatures range from 22 to 30 degrees, and during the height of summer you can expect up to 18 hours of sunshine each day. But unlike other destinations the temperatures never really feel oppressive, as the onshore wind keeps Gumusluk a little cooler than the rest of Bodrum. It’s reported that daytime temperatures in Gumusluk are 5 degrees lower than in the centre of the peninsula. If you’re thinking about a winter break, you’ll find the temperatures are rather good too. Obviously it will never be as warm as during the summer months, but you can still expect average temperatures of around 12-15 degrees.
