Hi there

We are staying in Kos for a week from the 10/9 then I am thinking of visiting Turkey for a week, Wondering if there is any untouristy villages nearby within about a hours bus ride from Bodrum port.

Thanks Dawn

Gumusuluk is about 35 minutes from Bodrum and is a lovely non-touristy resort with a nice little beach and some good fish restaurants. You could also look at Ortakent, that is lovely too and the beach is gorgeous. It will probably be cheaper to eat out in Ortakent than Gumusluk.

Gundogan is less than an hour by Dolmus / car from Bodrum and is a totally unspoilt Turkish Village with some nice fish restaurants and a nice long beach. There are lots of water sports etc that you can do here as well.

There are some lovely hotels and also plenty of Villas to rent. You will get lots of details on TripAdvisor

I'd thoroughly recommend Gumusluk - I lived there for a while!!! In the village though not down by the sea. There are cheaper places other than the fish restaurants to eat. If you do decide to eat in the fish restaurants the price is based on weight so check the price first.

Now the ferry from Bodrum to Kos is around 23 euro for a day return - they don't do singles!! Sorry don't know the cost the other way. You could get the ferry to Turgutreis from Kos thus making a shorter journey at the Turkish end!

Lots of nice walking around Gumusluk as well. I did lots with the dogs!!!

Take a look at Club Gumusluk - right on the beach and incredibly helpful owners (if they are still the same!!)
