Once travellers were able to get over to the island via a small causeway to see the rabbits but now the achaeology department at the castle are doing more digs and finding more interesting pieces

Rabbit Island no longer has many rabbits but there are some ruins which we're being excavated but this seems to have come to a halt. The causeway is very slippery so wear appropriate footwear. The start of the causeway is now blocked off by a restaurant so you have to walk along a little way in the edge of the... More

This was our third trip to Gumusluk but the first attempt we have made to get to the ancient city of Myndos which is what is on Rabbit Island. The causeway is very stoney and you will need suitable footwear to make the crossing. The depth of water never above 28 inches but sore feet from all the rocks. Once... More

Well to out it blankly, we went on a boat trip and was taken to rabbit island however there were no rabbits! Obviously they are there however due to us being on the boat, I didn't really fancy getting off and exploring (I don't think we could anyway!) - it's a beautiful lump of rock in a beautiful ocean -...

The town is still worth a visit for lunch, but don't come here expecting any ruins or to walk out to the island...

The island is about 40 minutes by bus from Bodrum. The town which it is in is quaint with lots of restaurants on the water. As a previous reviewer reported you can no longer climb the island. There is an old walkway (wall?) which leads to the island but it is very slippery. You can also way in very shallow... More

You are no longer allowed on the island due to the Roman remains. This is a shame as before it was a good walk up the hill to view out to sea.

You can still wander out to the Island, although the rocks you step along in the sea are quite slippy with the water lapping around your ankles. The Island has long since been fenced off, so you can't climb to the top like the olden days, but it's still a pleasant trip. Most buses (dolmus) run from the local towns... More

A careful walk of about 300 yards upto knees in water. Take care can be very slippy. Site is closedf off when you reach the island.
