Visit the Natural Charm of the Bodrum Region
Bodrum Region is a small peninsula on the Aegean Coast of Turkey and home to some of the hottest tourist resorts in the country. Bodrum Town in particular is a centre for yachting and boating owing to its excellent marina. The region is actually made up of a series of ‘cove villages’, the largest of which is Turgutreis; another popular destination for tourists who enjoy its extensive beaches, street bars, open-air market and covered bazaars.
An impressive feature of the region is that there’s something different to see in every ‘cove’, whether it’s a Turkish fishing village or a modern tourist town. For example, Gumbet is an upbeat commercial centre while Yalıkavak has small, quiet bays and high-class bars and restaurants. Torba is a rustic fishing village whereas Bitez is a wind surfing haven and Altinkum is great for family holidays. Serviced by the Bodrum international airport that’s just 22 miles from Bodrum Town, the area is easily accessible to international visitors.
Wherever you choose to go, the Bodrum region has plenty of archaeological sites dotted along 125 miles of coastlines, and more than 30 islands (including the popular islands of Kos and Rhodes) that lie just off the coast. Beaches range from pristine white sand to pebble bays, and all are surrounded by gorgeous scenery that’s complemented by the crisp Mediterranean Sea.
