Averages for Gumbet in September

Weather lowdown

If you don’t enjoy the scorching heat of July and August, and you crave a slightly lower temperature, yet all the fun of a beach holiday with plenty to see and do, then September is the ideal month for you.

Gumbet is still very busy right into October, however this is a popular month in Turkey because holiday prices drop again, following the end of the school holidays, and temperatures are still very warm, yet not over-powering. The middle of the month is the prime time for a cheaper holiday, with all the perks of peak season, including fantastic weather.  

You will experience an average day time temperature of around 26°C during the month, however this is likely to reach an average high of up to 31°C on the particularly warmer days, typically towards the beginning and middle of the month; towards the end of the month you will notice slightly cooler temperatures. One thing which doesn’t have much in the way of difference compared to the previous month is the number of sunlight hours experienced, and although there are slightly less, you will still see a huge 11 hours of bright sunshine on average every day, which is certainly a positive!

Beach time is a great idea now, as crowds are less but the sea temperature is still very high, sitting at a very warm 27°C, and the range of water-sports on offer is wide-ranging. Whilst you won’t have to jostle for a sun-lounger now, you will still see plenty of fellow beach-revellers.

In terms of rain, basically you’re not going to see any, because there is only an average precipitation rate of 10mm throughout the month, and that affects only 1 day on average to a very small degree. Whilst this is a slight increase from the previous couple of months, you certainly won’t be needing an umbrella in your suitcase.

Where to stay

The slightly cooler temperatures in September mean that heading out to explore, and enjoying days by the pool or on the beach, are much more comfortable than the previous months, and that means finding a hotel which is close to the beach and which has a large pool, may be right on your list.

If this is the case, Club Paloma Apartments could be for you. You can choose a board basis up to half board, and it is a particularly good choice for couples and families. The large swimming pool and kids pool is great for those sunny days, and you can stay connected with Wi-Fi internet access.

Roadhouse Apartments are equally as impressive, again with a large pool, and a pool bar for those hot day refreshments. The building overlooks the bay with a beautiful sun terrace, perfect for enjoying those warm summer evenings, as well as being close to the town centre. This is a particularly economical choice, as it is fantastic value for money.

If you prefer a hotel vibe compared to an apartment then Hotel Anil should be checked out. Again you can go half board or B&B, the choice is yours, and it is located in the centre of town. This was actually one of the first hotels to pop up in the resort and it is family run for comfort. The outdoor pool and private beach area are ideal for those plentiful sunny days.

What to do

A great way to enjoy the mild September temperatures, particularly towards the end of the month, is to take a walking tour. These are not only fun, scenic, and great exercise, but you’ll have the help of an experienced guide along the way, to help you learn about what you’re seeing. You can organise a bespoke tour, so you can identify your particular areas of interest, through Bodrum Private Tours, such as a half day or full day tour, depending on how much you want to pound the pavements and surrounding area! This is a great way to enjoy and learn about the local culture, which is often missed in the midst of partying and holiday fun.

Alternatively, how about a boat trip with a difference? There are many lazy day boat trips on offer, which go around the coastline and stop for swim breaks, however a different itinerary takes you to Camel Beach, where you can not only ride on a camel, but you get to see the area en-route, which is simply breathtaking. Again, this is best booked through tour operators, and if you’re booking more than one trip, or there is a group of you, try and haggle your price down. You will often find with street vendors that they are prepared to cut the price or at least throw in a free Turkish bath for you if you are a little cheeky, but not too much! Telling them you got the price cheaper elsewhere usually also works.

If you want to experience history for the day then head over to Bodrum for culture and archaeology. The great thing about visiting Gumbet is that you can use it as a base to visit other areas, and Bodrum is so close by that you can head there for different reasons, be it shopping for the day, nightlife, or in this case, history. Bodrum Amphitheatre and the Institute of Nautical Archaeology should definitely be checked out, as well as Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, and the little known Dibeklihan, which is full of small private museums and galleries.

Hit the beach

One charming resort to visit when you’re searching for a beach with a difference, away from Gumbet’s main stretch of sand, is the beautiful and quaint resort of Torba, located around 12km away, just north of nearby Gumbet. There are two beaches here, which never get that busy, and if you do get bored of the sand, there is a Byzantine monastery to explore, just a stone’s throw from the beach itself. Again, safe waters will greet you, with fine golden sand, plenty of sun-loungers, and crystal clear sea.

Restaurants & nightlife

September is still classed as a busy month in Gumbet, but it is slightly less packed than the previous two months, which is good news for those seeking a more laid-back feel to their night’s entertainment. Bar Street is still very busy, and it will be until the end of season, however there are many fun pubs and bars aside from the clubs in that stretch of the resort. Mystery Disco is a fun option for your evening’s entertainment, with music and low cost drinks all night long.

For a more sedate evening however, head to Windy Bay Restaurant. Overlooking the sea you can enjoy wonderful steak dishes, delicious wine, and a whole variety of other options from a very large menu. On the other end of the scale, Memories Bar is a loud, busy, and vibrant fun pub, with plentiful British dishes on offer, as well as other international options, including drinks offers and entertainment.
