Gumbet, so called because of the numerous white domed cisterns in the area, features one of the longest sandy beaches on the peninsula, popular with sun-worshippers and water sport enthusiasts alike. Its crescent shaped sheltered bay is lined with large hotels, bars and restaurants. At the far end of the beach is the jetty where dozens of Gulets depart on their daily cruises. Above the jetty is the hill that separates Gumbet from Bodrum. Perched on the top are several old windmills. There are fabulous views of both Gumbet and Bodrum from here.
Parallel to the bay is the main street. By day this is fairly quiet but at night it transforms into a hive of activity with its bright lights, bar, restaurants and disco bars. Gumbet, it must be said, is one of the most vibrant resort on the peninsula and is popular with tourists of many nationalities. Gumbet does, however, offer something for all tastes and age groups.
The weekly market is held in Gumbet every Sunday. It is a smaller version of the market held in Bodrum but it is never crowded.

Bitez (or Agacli – meaning ‘full of trees’) is one of the main citrus growing areas on the peninsula. If I think of Bitez, I think of Mandarin Gardens, Olive Groves and evening walks along the promenade which runs alongside the beach. The beach here is one of the cleanest on the peninsula. The restaurants and cafes that line the promenade offer Turkish, oriental and international cuisine. Each restaurant offers the free use of sunbeds on the shoreline. There are no noisy bars or night clubs here so you can be assured of a relaxing meal or stroll.
The old village of Bitez is a 15-minute walk inland and remains totally unspoiled by tourism.
