There are strict building regulations in Gumusluk due to the archaeological remains of ancient Myndos, thus, many parts of Gumusluk have been better protected against intensive building development compared to some other resorts. Gumusluk still retains its charm of a little Aegean village.
That’s why Gumusluk is not an area with huge all inclusive hotels, where you need to use a lift to get to your room on the third or fourth floor. Instead, there are small hotels, Bed and Breakfasts , Apart Hotels, and Holiday Rentals scattered near the beach in Gumusluk Bay and Cukurbuk. So you can sunbathe, swim, eat and drink wherever you want and discover natural beauties and history when you are walking along the pathways instead of spending the whole day in a hotel.
Hotels, holiday rentals and bed and breakfasts are predominantly in Gumusluk Bay and Cukurbuk area.
It is possible to find accomodation within walking distance to the beach to suit everyone’s taste in both those areas. You will be very close to Gumusluk sea front restaurants, Rabbit Island , and two beaches when you are staying at Gumusluk Bay.
However, you will not be so far away from the Cukurbuk Beach, not known by many, if you choose to holiday at a bed and breakfast, Gumusluk apartment or a Gumusluk Villa around Cukurbuk, on the road from Gumusluk Bay to Yalikavak, enjoying the incredible nature and stunning sea views of Gumusluk, especially in Autumn and Spring. You can go for short or long walks in the fields and hills to gather herbs, roots and plants, or explore the secrets of Gumusluk walking on the shore. Bougainvilleas covering the walls of the hotels and bed and breakfasts give their guests the feeling of staying in a traditional Bodrum house. You can either have your lunch and dinner at the bed and breakfast or your hotel, where you can taste local dishes most probably prepared with the olive oil obtained from the olives growing on the olive trees in the garden, or you can eat in one of the fish restaurants in Gumusluk Bay. You can also try some local fast food such as meatball sandwiches or chicken doner at Gumusluk Bay. Another local taste is Pide at Pasa Pide Restaurant in the village. You can get home delivery by calling (0252) 3944428. I guess I deserve a pita stuffed with minced meat now.
Bed and Breakfasts in Gumusluk are generally owned and operated by families whose members cook and do the chores for the guests. Most of them have all the comfort of a small hotel with wc/shower in every room and air condition though they retain the charm of provincial village life of Bodrum.
Holiday rentals and apart hotels are ideal for people who wish to have the comfort of a house. In Cukurbuk, about one km to Gumusluk Bay, there are accommodation options on the way from Gumusluk to Yalikavak, near the Cukurbuk Beach. When you are walking from Cukurbuk to Gumusluk Bay, taking the shortcuts, you will find yourself between the green hills and the blue of the sea.
In Gumusluk, the high season starts as soon as the schools close. The most crowded time of Gumusluk is from the end of June to the beginning of September. If you have chosen to spend your holiday during this time, it is advisable to make an early reservation to avoid disappointment and get discounted prices.
Although the most crowded months in Gumusluk are July and August, you should see Gumusluk at least once in spring and autumn. When the green grass sprouting out of the soil and meets the blue of the sea, one has the feeling as if the nature wants to say to those who know the Aegean only during the summer time: “I have a lot to offer any time of the year.”
