Turgutreis Summary
The second-largest town on the peninsula, Turgutreis is named for Turgut Reis, the admiral who became legendary for his contribution in the Ottoman siege in Malta.

The town boasts a compact town centre with several long, sandy beaches and spectacular views. Keen hikers visit the town to explore the dramatic landscape. It is a windy town, and popular with windsurfers.

Life in Turgutreis is very laidback, although during the summer months the influx of visitors turns it into a bustling, busy resort. Over the winter months it calms down, and the substantial number of expat residents find that life slows down and prices drop during this time, although the weather remains mild. It's a rather chic area, with a number of high-end properties. There are plenty of new developments on the go here and more and more British expats are moving to the area.

Boats depart Turgutreis daily, travelling to Yalikavak, Gumusluk, Karaincir and Akyarlar.

Due to the town's proximity to the Greek island of Kos, it is a restricted area and foreigners cannot easily buy property here.

Turgutreis enjoys long, hot summers like the rest of the peninsula. However, the strong winds that are valued by windsurfers mean that the heat does not get unbearable in the height of the summer. Winters in Turgutreis are mild and short, with the bulk of the year's rainfall.
