The Charm of Gulluk
Gulluk meaning "place of roses" is a small harbour town situated north of Bodrum in the Muğla Province of Turkey.
The town is typically Turkish with a wide range of restaurants dotted along the waterfront serving a huge variety of excellent quality food, including locally caught sea fish and traditional meat dishes. There is a yachting marina and the main beach is just 80 metres from the apartment.
Amongst the quaint, old shops in the centre of Gulluk you'll find a bank, cash machine and two supermarkets. There are a number of bakeries, a car or moped hire shop and a weekly market.
For some time Gulluk has been a popular stopover for tourists sailing the Blue Cruise tour and a port for light freight ships. Gulluk is also an important centre of construction for gulet boats (Turkish hand crafted, wooden boats).
The Bodrum Peninsula
The Peninsula covers around 170km of the South-Western coast of Turkey, jutting out into the Aegean sea towards the Greek islands of Kos and Kalymnos. Between the bays of Gulluk to the North and Gökova to the South there's a whole host of beaches, villages and local attractions to visit on the peninsula.
Other than hiring a car to get around, there are plenty of taxis and the Dolmus (local buses) service is very good (and cheap!).
The town of Bodrum is exciting and lively and there are numerous traditional Turkish villages and small seaside towns to explore where the pace of live is slower: ideal if you are seeking a more relaxing and peaceful break.
As well as Gulluk itself, the Northern part of the peninsula is characterised by a number of sleepy villages surrounded by citrus groves and hills covered in olive trees. You'll see small village cafes and picturesque windmills in this part of Turkey. You can hire a boat and crew to explore the secluded beaches, quiet coves and dozens of wooded islands.
On the southern coast of the peninsula, there is the long beach at Ortakent and a very popular beach near to Gumbet: both have fine white sand. All along this part of the coast you can enjoy peaceful walks through the orange groves which border the shoreline. Akyalar is the place for wind-surfers and Bitez is a yachting mecca.
The attractive villages of Turgutreis, Yalikavak and Gumusluk can be found along the most Westerly part of the peninsula and are also well worth a visit. Before buying our apartment in Gulluk we owned a holiday home in Gumusluk and we'd particularly recommend a visit to this traditional fishing village where the beach is excellent and the local seafood restaurants are superb! There's nothing more relaxing than eating great food at the side of the harbour as you watch a spectacular Aegean sunset... truly memorable!
