Gümüşlük (turkish for "made of silver) is 25 km away from Bodrum and 60 km from Bodrum-Milas international airport, from where you have excellent international air traffic connections. The surroundings offer lots of mediterranean flair. There are small restaurants directly by the sea.
MyndosFrom history we know that after Gümüşlük – previously Myndos – was established the population spread rapidly throughout the coastal region. The harbor was well protected. It is still possible to view the ruins of a byzantine church. In 44 B.C. Caesar’s murderers Brutus and Cassius used Myndos as their headquarters.
The 450-year old church in the center of town is used regularly for concerts. An annual music festival is held here.
Many antique remains of the town of Myndos can be seen on Rabbit Island. The island is off Gümüşlük and can be reached on foot via a fort.
The exclusive restaurant with the most stunning sea view in all Gümüşlük. Stroll along the wonderful beach and enjoy a long evening, lit up with torches floating in the water.
