Visitors to Gumbet who really can’t get enough of travel should book a cabin on a Blue Cruise. Based in Bodrum, just 2 miles from Gumbet Bay, this local cruise operator offers 7 nights sailing, stopping at many popular destinations along the southern Turkey coastline, and even makes a few stops in some areas of Greece. Cruises start from just £310 for 7 nights, but large groups and families may wish to hire a boat for a private tour. There’s plenty of choice, with everything from 2 cabins to 12 cabins on offer.
After all that sailing, enjoy a delicious al fresco meal at Uncle Fester’s Restaurant & Bar.
