TR015. Kusadasi to Bodrum
The little village Torba is
hiding in a charming little bay. Heading North of Bodrum Torba is the
nearest village. It is only active during the summer months, but due to
the generally high quality of the holiday home developments is a pleasant
and relaxed place to visit. There are also the remains of a Byzantine
monastery, and nearby is a small path leading to the next bay, which is
ideal for a little light walking. Ferries to Didim (ancient Didyma)
leave from Torba harbor across the Gulf of Güllük.
We will mention the two fishing villages Türkbükü and Gölköy
in one, because they are close to each other. You find them on the
peninsula map east of Yalikavak. These
delightful spots are the favorite retreats of many well-known Turkish
artists, actors and entertainers who enliven the many small bars and
restaurants at night. Several of the more popular restaurants are run by
Istanbul couples who have fled the big city.
Gündogan, only a few minutes West of Yalikavak a place that can be
really called peaceful. It is little village which is still more or less
unspoiled despite the holiday developments on the surrounding hills. Here
in the North of the peninsula a fresh breeze often comes . A reason why
many surfers prefer this bay.
Yalikavak is a small, but busy,
center and a harbour where visiting yachts and fishing boats moor
cheerfully together. The restaurants in the town center and on the sea
front are popular with locals and tourists alike. Here is little beach,
but it's more comfortable to sit in a waterside cafe and watch the world
go by. Several buildings have been tastefully restored in the town; a
former water cistern has become a small art gallery and a former olive oil
press is converted into a kilim showroom where visitors are welcome.
