Beach Life

The beaches of the Bodrum peninsula are excellent for diving and snorkelling, bathing boats or dolmus can take you to most of them. Bagla (14 km from Bodrum), on the south coast, has fine sandy beaches, but windsurfers usually prefer Gümbet (about 3 km west of Bodrum). On the west coast, you can find good beaches at Akyar, Turgutreis, Gümuslük and Yalikavak. These are all small villages with fish restaurants and popular anchorages for sailors. In Karaada bay, there are caves with hot water springs.

Do & See

Bodrum is an intriguing vacation spot, boasting everything from highly interesting historical sights to beachfront relaxation spots for the sun thirsty. The close proximity to the Aegean sea provides ample opportunities to explore the waters, the reefs and caves, whereas the fascinating ruins of the ancient city of Halikarnassus still enchants travelers with its rich history and magical charm.
