Why go to Bodrum

On Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, where the Aegean meets the Med, you’ll find the charming coastal city of Bodrum. With beaches, bazaars and sun-bleached ruins, this elegant resort has it all. Sail aboard a traditional wooden gulet, dropping anchor to swim in aquamarine coves, and enjoy some of the Aegean’s best scuba diving and nightlife.

Both name of the town and district, Bodrum occupies a significant chunk of Turkey’s south-western peninsula. In the town, whitewashed houses and bright bougainvillea tumble down to twin bays overlooked by the 15th-century crusader castle. A sandy beach lies to the east and a yacht-filled marina to the west, inviting regular day-trippers from the Greek island of Kos, just a 45-minute ferry-ride away.

The Bodrum Peninsula, meanwhile, has a seaside resort to suit most tastes and budgets. Rub shoulders with jetsetters in upmarket Yalikavak and Golturkbuku, or chill out in family-friendly Gumbet or Turgutreis. Bitez or Torba are great picks for laid-back local vibes, or plump for Gumusluk, where seafood restaurants are set right on the sand.
