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

Rabbit Island was one of several stops on a boat tour of the local coast. The trip was a very relaxing and enjoyable way to spend a day.

A fantastic little island to visit in Gumusluk area. You can literally wal to the island via sea as the water levels is so low and there are archeological ruins that you must see!

It looks like someone had but a sack of grains or something there for the rabbits, which was nice. The wall itself, we were told by a restaurant owner not to walk... More

We stumbled upon (I'll come back to stumbling again in a mo) Rabbit Island when visiting the pretty little fishing village of Gumusluk (nearer to Yalikavak than Bodrum) and wondered why people were walking about in the sea. So, a local restaurateur brought us up to speed with the ancient history associated with the area. That made us want to... More
