Located right at the harbour's edge, this restaurant is ideally located for a delicious Turkish Breakfast. Take a seat, and watch the locals around the harbour start their day. The Mandarin is a family owned restaurant, and they serve meals all day, but I've only been there for breakfast. I spotted it when I was kayaking around the bay, and when I...more
If you’re looking for a place to each lunch, or maybe grab a inexpensive dinner, Gümüşlük Harbour may not be the first location that comes to mind. But if you steer clear of the popular tourist establishments that line the harbour, you’ll find establishments that appeal just as much to the locals, as budget conscious travelers..Although...more

Le Kabbak is run by an enterprising group of lamp makers at the forefront of “rural renewal” in Dereköy.
According to their website, the artists put blood, sweat, tears into the making of each creation, and this infuses the gourds with new spirit.
What to buy: The gourds can take as much as a year to dry out – and then a couple of days to turn into a lighting accessory.
It’s an eye-catching landmark as you travel along this road to Gümüşlük, especially at night when the gourds are lit up like Christmas on steriods.
What to pay: 20TL for a cheap basic Gourd, but the more elaborate the design, the higher the cost. There are Gourds to fit every budget.
There is a loverly natural pool at the end of the bay! The pool gets filled naturally when it is windy so the water is relativly fresh! Plus not that many people know about it. Its great to watch the sunset from and relax in a warm pool of water! I only discovered it this year and I have been going to Gumusluk for nine years.
The location is at the end of the bay past the hotel at the end and from there it is about a ten minutes walk. Make sure you take a torch as it can be quite dangerous coming back when it is dark. If you can ask a local where it is.
Don't forget to have your swimgear with you.
You have to go into the water to get to the Rabbit Island!!!
It's not that long walk, but you will have water almost up to your swim"trousers".
What's to see?
Rabbit, rabbit, rabbit.... There's a lot of them there!!! But they are shy :(
You also get a nice view to Gumusluk bay.
