Torba is a sea-side village near Bodrum in the Mugla Province, Turkey.

Torba is located approximately 6 km (3.7 mi) northeast of the resort town, Bodrum. The hillsides are clad in olive groves and pine forests. The shoreline is dotted with cafes and open-air restaurants, specializing in catch-of-the-day seafood, lamb kebabs and traditional mezes (Turkish tapas). Despite some recent upmarket developments, the village has retained a relaxed, rural ambience. Because of its close proximity to Bodrum town, Torba is popular with day-trippers who come for a swim, a stroll along the idyllic shoreline or a candle-lit dinner on the beach. Hotels and all-inclusive resorts are there as well.
