Beaches, bars and bazaars

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 Yalikavak 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.

Places to Visit

Pamukkale

A Roman health Spa that's still in use today, white rocks form terraced pools that are filled with enticing blue water, it's a naturally beautiful and totally relaxing day out.

Ephesus

Ephesus is one of the world's best preserved archaeological sites and dates back to Roman times. Visit homes, the double walled library, old brothel and the amazing 24,000 seat Grand Theatre, once graced by gladiators.

Aqua Fantasy

Visit the largest water park in Turkey that will thrill and excite the whole family. Try adrenalin pumping slides like the Space Bowl and Black Thunder whilst the younger ones head for their own pirate adventure at Treasure Island.

Ancient history in the Bodrum Region

This peninsula has significant archaeological sites, highlighting Turkey's rich cultural inheritance from early Greek, Roman and Ottoman civilisations. For example, Bodrum Town is home to one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Mausoleum of Mausolus, which stood for 1700 years before it was probably destroyed by an earthquake. The Castle of St Peter or Bodrum Castle was built in the 15th century and is now the site of the impressive Museum of Underwater Archaeology.

The nearby town of Yalikavak is another tourist hotspot, and yet it has been inhabited since the end of the second millennium B.C. and for a long time acted as the region's main fishing port. The nearby deserted village of Sandima, which consists of old stone houses built into a rocky hillside, is a good reason to go for a walk as it stands at the crossroads of ancient walking paths that were set up by hill-dwelling Lelegian tribes.

Although the town of Turgutreis on the western tip of the peninsula is popular for water sports enthusiasts and families who relish its pretty orchards, vegetable gardens and Saturday markets, the town has an interesting history as well. Named after the Turkish seaman who was born here in 1485, the town honours the naval commander who helped to extend the Ottoman Empire across North Africa, and in particular, built up the city of Tripoli in Libya.

A resort to suit every holidaymaker

Although Bodrum Town is well-known by yachting and boating enthusiasts, there are plenty of destinations on the peninsula, including Turgutreis, which has a bustling new marina, soft sandy beaches and exciting night life as well. Quieter resorts such as Altinkum, Bitez and Torba are great for family visitors, while Yalikavak is considered one of the more elite villages in the region. Whatever your style of holiday, the Bodrum Region can accommodate you. Simply fill in your flight dates to get the best deals with Holidayhypermarket.
