Bitez is sheltered by hills of fir trees, mandarin and olive groves and is the main citrus growing area on the Bodrum peninsula. It’s situated a few kilometers from the nearby resort of Gümbet. Although similar in size and layout to Gümbet, Bitez has not quite experienced the tourism boom yet and is still more like a traditional Turkish seaside resort. The beach is closed to traffic which means you only have to stroll from the beach side cafes and restaurants to get to your sunbed!
