Luxury Kumlubuk Holidays

Beach-lined bay with an ancient past


In Kumlubuk it’s all eyes on the bay. Holding the title of having one of the largest sweeps of beach in this part of Turkey, it’s a golden-sands-meet-turquoise-waters kind of affair. Thanks to its size, beach days never seem to feel too crowded. Away from the beach, surrounding hills are a haven for hiking or slow afternoon strolls.

The dining scene deserves quite a lot of recognition, too. Fish is big here and Kumlubuk’s handful of charming restaurants serves up some of the freshest and best on the Turquoise Coast. 

Overlooking this stunning bay are the ancient ruins of Amos. Dating back to the fifth century, the ancient city’s walls are still in remarkably good condition. Other fascinating sites include a Greek theatre and small temple dedicated to the god Apollo Samnaios (Apollo of the hill). In fact, its position perched high on a hill means the views out to sea are just one of the reasons to visit. 

Kumlubuk allows you to combine its small town charm with lively Marmaris, located just 25 kilometres south-west. This exciting coastal town is home to restaurant-lined promenades, pretty coves, watersports opportunities and more of Turkey’s renowned ancient sites – don’t miss Marmaris Castle.

Turquoise Coast, Kumlubuk
When to go

There are no two ways about it – Turkey is hot. Summers top 30°C, with an average of 12 hours of sunshine a day and virtually no rain. The coast is cooled by sea breezes, which are particularly welcome in the mid-summer months. Spring and autumn are good times to go, averaging a thoroughly beach-ready mid-20s with plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

Visa Information

British citizens need a visa to enter Turkey. It costs 20 US dollars, and you can apply online before you travel. Your Trusted Adviser can let you know how.


In restaurants in Turkey it’s common to leave 10-15% as a tip, unless service charge is included – make sure you check your bill carefully. Round up the fare when paying your taxi driver, although it’s not necessary to tip a dolmus driver. In the very popular Turkish baths, you should tip the masseuse between 10-20%.

Introduction to languages

The official language of Turkey is Turkish. English is widely spoken too, so getting by is easy.
