Nestling in a bay on the peninsula’s north shore are the two quaint villages of Golkoy and Turkbuku. Sheltered by two islands, it is a natural haven for fishermen who still operate from the many wooden jetties along the beachfront. The area was once occupied by Greeks and it is possible to see the remains of a number of churches.
The newly named Golturkbuku encompasses these two fishing villages and the area is a favourite retreat of many well-known Turkish artists, actors and entertainers who enliven the small bars and restaurants. Golturkbuku combines both village life and sophisticated resort atmosphere.
