This is the first settlement before Bodrum. Its enclosed sea like a lake. Guvercinlik is surrounded with small hotels, restaurants and houses.
Off the shore there is Salih Island. Guvercinlik is the place you can greet Bodrum. The hills to the east of the wide and tall Salih Island are covered in pines and lower parts in olive trees.
The cove where there is a white house on the south east part of Salih is the best on the island. The sea is still very clean despite the pollution created by the fish farms nearby.
In the south there is another holiday area consisting of seven or eight villas. Although it is claimed that the island of Salih was the location of Old Karyanda there are almost no historic remains to prove that.
The Karyanda locals left the island and were relocated around Golturkbuku and founded New Karyanda
