Once the ancient Carian city of Myndos, the village of Gümüslük is located on the western tip of the Bodrum Peninsula. Gümüslük has a tranquil atmosphere with natural beauty, architectural ruins dating back to ancient Greece, and excellent regional cooking. The majority of Gümüslük village is an official archaeological site. It is one of the best preserved areas in Bodrum, with a strong local character, due to strict development guidelines established by the local Municipality.

Two international marinas, Turgutreis and Yalikavak, each within 10 minutes driving distance to Gümüslük, provide convenient access for sailing as well as shopping and entertainment. Driving distance from the Milas/Bodrum International Airport is approximately 45 minutes.
