Torba, nestled in a steep bowl of pine woods and olive groves, lies around a pretty bay edged with a beach of soft sand extending to pebbles at its outer reaches and with calm crystal-clear waters beyond.  At the western end of the bay is a small working harbour which, in the high season, sees luxury yachts moored alongside local fishing boats as Torba’s popularity with Turkey’s rich and famous has grown.  

Torba is a perfect destination for those seeking a peaceful and relaxing environment yet needing to remain within a short dolmus (bus) ride of all the amenities and action of Bodrum and neighbouring resorts. Torba’s seafront is dotted with several attractive low rise hotels, the occasional bar, beach club and several restaurants, ranging from the simple to the sophisticated, all of which create a surprisingly Mediterranean atmosphere.  With the sandy beach and calm, clear sea, this is an excellent place to swim, sunbathe and relax.  Further beaches and tiny coves can be found along the western stretches of Torba’s coastline.  For the more energetic, a variety of water sports is available from the main beach.  

For those wanting to do a spot of local sightseeing, the ruins of a Byzantine monastery can be found on the east side of the bay. There is also a daily ferryboat service across the unspoilt Gulf of Güllük to Didim where the famed Temple of Apollo can be seen.  Traditional güllet trips and other excursions can be arranged at the seafront.

Please note that out of season, from around mid-October to the end of April most of the hotels and associated tourist attractions are closed as Torba returns to its life as a traditional fishing village.  A few restaurants and the shops will remain open but for more activity and amenities you will need to go into Bodrum town.
