Averages for Gumbet in August
Turkey’s Mugla province is home to a number of lively beach resort destinations, including the once sleepy town of Gumbet that became an overnight hit once holidaymakers found out about this stunning coastal location. Cheap flights, budget rooms and bargain beers make Gumbet especially popular with Brits.
August temperatures are smoking. Ranging from 23 to 34 degrees celsius, this is a great time of year to visit Gumbet for those who love the hot and sunny weather. Rainfall at this time of year is certainly nothing to worry about as only 8.5mm falls on average during August.
Gumbet holds a prime location between the Aegean Sea and the mountains, so visitors should definitely take an adventure inland to the lush green hills at some point during the trip. There’s plenty to see up in the mountains.
As well as seeing stunning views over Gumbet Bay, travellers can visit the grave of Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı, or ‘The Fisherman of Halicarnassus’; a popular author who inspired many in the Bodrum peninsula, or check out some traditional windmills. The hills between Gumbet and Bodrum can be reached by foot, taxi, or local bus.
Enjoy a meal of pizza or pasta at Sunger Pizza in Gumbet. All the traditional pizzas are on offer, including some not-so-traditional such as the ‘sponge special’ topped with squid. The restaurant is also open for breakfast and light nibbles.
