This pretty little village is becoming one of the most sought after areas of the Bodrum peninsula and a favourite destination for Turkish holidaymakers. Exquisite summer houses surrounded by flower filled gardens lining the small streets are backed by hillsides richly scented with wild growing herbs. Much of the year the village is relatively unhurried but in summer it is swelled by families from Istanbul coming to summer in their seaside residences, the atmosphere is lively and very Mediterranean.

Both pebble and sandy beaches can be found offering a range of popular water sports. A small selection of traditional shops, bars and restaurants can be found in the village including Turkish style open markets where hand made items, fresh food and souvenirs can be bought, while a wider selection can be found in nearby Bodrum. Restaurants and bars are scattered along the sea front, some little more than a palm thatched dining terrace, others with lively music , sophisticated menus and waterside dining!

At one end of the bay the harbour accommodates local fishing boats and luxury yachts alike. A ferry service also runs from Torba to Didyma where the famed Temple of Apollo can be found. Nestled on a hillside overlooking the village of Torba, a superbly preserved structure built by the Lelegians over 2500 years ago, reminds the area of itís past, while the ruins of a Byzantine monastery stand on the east side of the bay.
