The Peninsula is served by Bodrum Milas International Airport (BJV)
The Bodrum Peninsula is situated on the south west coast of Turkey and is by far the prettiest area on the South Aegean coastline. Bodrum is unique as it caters for such diverse interests. You can experience traditional Turkish life only minutes away from the hustle and bustle of a modern resort.
Bodrum and Gumbet offer a vibrant nightlife for the young and energetic and are a shopper’s paradise, whilst there are many other resorts and charming fishing villages offering peace and tranquillity. Water sports enthusiasts are more than catered for. Many of the resorts offer parasailing, windsurfing, canoeing and snorkelling. Divers from all over the world enjoy exploring the waters around Bodrum and there is something for both beginners and advanced divers. The area is steeped in history and this is still evident right across the peninsula. Take time to visit the more obvious sites such as St. Peter’s Castle, The Mausoleum (one of the seven wonders of the ancient world), The Amphitheatre and Myndos Gate, to name just a few. There are various ways to explore the peninsula. You can cover the whole peninsula by car in just a few hours by following the coastal road. Daily gullet cruises, available from Bodrum Harbour and from some of the local beaches and harbours, visit some of the beautiful bays and coves. Alternatively, you can visit each village individually by taking the small local bus (dolmus). From the main port in Bodrum you can take the daily ferry or catamaran to some of the various Greek Islands including Kos, Rhodes and Symi.
