Gümüslük has the same location as the ancient city Myndus had many years ago. Today, both town and area are well developed, but traces of the ancient world are to be seen everywhere. Major parts of the ancient city is today (below the waterline), and it is an exciting area to explore when scuba diving or snorkeling.
The towns’s major attraction is its wide selection of fish restaurants, and they are well worth dining at while staying in Bodrum. The fish restaurants are placed by the sea, and after a delightful meal, one can either choose to relax and doze off, or take a walk to Rabbit Island. If you don’t want to get wet feet, the only option is going there when the sea is low tide.
There is a good bus connection to and from Gümüslük to all areas of Bodrum.
