Gümüslük stands on the site of the ancient Carian city of Myndus whose seafront sections slid into the sea in some long-forgotten earthquake. While the area´s archaeological status forbids diving with tanks, snorklers will find more walls under water here, as well as an ancient breakwater in the harbor. The land site is yet to be fully excavated, but traces of antiquity can be spotted in empty fields.
The original city of Myndos stood a few kilometers southeast of here. In the 4th century BC King Mausolus decided to build a new Myndos and transplanted the entire population. A hundred years ago there were ruins worth seeing (including a theatre and a stadium), but now these have disappeared, being gradually dismantled for the foundations and walls of new buildings.
