Excerpt: This was a more quaint, home-style cooking, as if you stopped into someone’s house for dinner. The setting is cute, with little tables on the beach sand, and the water almost touching your feet. The menu are hand made pages on coloured paper, cut and torn, filed in a ring binder. Its all quite sweet. Visit Ursula’s website to read more

Author: This article written by Bill and Janet Wickman from Airstream Voyages. They dropped anchor in Gümüşlük, and recount local finds (best baklava) and she reminisces about the changes between the Gümüşlük she knew then, and now.
Excerpt: “Pronounced “Goumoushlouk” roughly. It’s the ancient city of Myndos, nice place, nice anchorage and despite the rampant tourism on this northern section of the Carian coast, it still retains the atmosphere of a Turkish sea side village. There are a couple small markets and a very nice little bakery right off the wooden town wharf. The bakery has the usual fresh bread and an exceptional assortment of baked goodies including the very best baklava we’ve had this trip, perhaps ever”. Visit Bill and Janets website to read more

“Gümüşlük Seaside Village”
Author: Written by Sue at Suemtravels website.
