If you're interested in history, and know a little about the island, it's a nice wade out to the fence to rabbit-spot (we didn't see any from the walk but spotted several later on, while on a boattrip to the shore.) but if you're there solely to see rabbits, you'll probably be disappointed. It's closed off for the archaeologists to... More

No rabbits and closed for archaeology research! You walk across the slippery stones only to find you can't go on the island and there haven't been rabbits for years!

all islands and bays we visited was excellent. It is best to go with family or with partners (not alone). Even while you are visiting the bays and islands people friendly and you can chat with them. Places are excellent to visit.

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 -...
