gumbet vs marmaris

ive been to marmaris twice and i l;ove it , i am thinking of trying somewhere different in turkey, ive heard gumbet is 10 years behing marmaris !!

what we love about marmaris is at night you can go along the beach and theres a party atmosphere or if you want to be quiet one night you can, what about gumbet ???

2. Re: gumbet vs marmaris

We did Marmaris about 5 times,we went in June last year,and decided in the September to try a different resort,so we went to Gumbet,we didnt like it,its an old tired looking place,and smaller,a little more expensive,food was good but no really nice looking restraunts ,Marmaris is much more cosmopolitan and prettier,So we went back to our usual again this year,dont think I want to try another resort again.

3. Re: gumbet vs marmaris

I have been to Marmaris twice and Gumbet many times now. I do like Marmaris, but I think its one of them places that 'looks' like anywhere else. Ie, lay on the beach, go for a walk etc and you could just as well be in Spain. I find Gumbet/Bodrum has thet feel that you are in Turkey, if that makes sense. You have the party atmosphere in Gumbet, and the hilly streets and a lovely bay, and over the hill literally is bodrum with its old castle, huge harbour and narrow turkish shopping streets. The only thing I will say is that if you are a beach person, marmaris's beach is nicer.

We adore Gumbet/Bodrum now and won't go to Marmaris now. Each to our own though!

I agree with lola - the first time I went to Turkey was to Marmaris then have been to Bodrum/Gumbet since. I did find Marmaris' main street like other resorts in Spain etc.

Gumbet has both lively and quiet night spots - and is wonderfully close to Bodrum for other night life as well.

There's loads of choice of night life in Gumbet. The beaches around the peninsular are fun to explore by day as well.

But hey, each to their own. If we all loved the same place it would be very boring and crowded lol!!!
