Gumusluk guide for lifestyle, entertainment and attractions
The smallest fishing village on the peninsula, Gumusluk is built on the ancient city of Myndos. Some of the city's ancient ruins are trapped under the clear waters, making the seafront a perfect playground for snorkelers or divers.
Gumusluk has an authentic village atmosphere, and the only sound you'll hear is the sea lapping gently against the rocks. The village is a working fishing centre, and not a seasonal place like other towns on the peninsula. Gumusluk's dwellings are traditional whitewashed villas with colourful flowers.
Gumusluk is popular with painters, writers and musicians who have moved from the larger centres or even overseas to this quiet spot. There are a number of expats, especially from Britain and western European countries like France and the Netherlands. Because it's so quiet it's not ideal for families, there isn't a lot to do here and the facilities are a little lacking - although links to the rest of the peninsula are good.
At the moment there is an excess of properties on the market, so it's not ideal for a short-term investment.
