Gumusluk, meaning “of silver” is the harbour of ancient Myndos and is one of the oldest settlements on the peninsula. This area is steeped in history and rich in archaeology both on land and underwater. The historic remains can still be seen just below the water where the city subsided. From here you can walk across the sunken causeway to the island opposite known as Rabbit Island. The small harbour and the village have kept their traditional charm, with a handful of delightful fish restaurants and small craft shops. Gumusluk is well known for its bohemian laid-back style and is popular with artists and musicians. It hosts the international music festival every year which is an absolute “must” for music lovers. At these festivals, Turkish and International jazz and classical musicians, perform amongst the magnificent ancient stone ruins in the open air, beneath the stars.
There are both old and new developments outside of the village, spreading several kilometres along the coastline, which provide some of the most scenic views on the peninsula.
