The Bodrum Peninsula
The Peninsula is served by Bodrum Milas 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. The resorts of Bodrum and Gumbet offers a vibrant nightlife for the young and the energetic and are a shoppers paradise, whilst there are many other resorts and charming fishing villages offering peace and tranquillity. Water sport enthusiasts are more than catered for. Many of the resorts offer parasailing, windsurfing, canoeing, snorkelling, banana boats and ringos. 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, The Amphi Theatre and Myndos Gate.
There are various ways are to explore the peninsula. You can cover the whole peninsula by car in just a few hours by following the coastal road. Daily Gulet 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 public transport called a Dolmus.
From the main port in Bodrum you can take the ferry or catamaran to various Greek Islands including Kos, Rhodes and Symi.
Formerly known as Halicarnassos, Bodrum is home to the Mausoleum – one of the Seven Wonders of the World. Bodrum’s famous Castle of St. Peter rests between two bays, one of which houses the large Marina where the many fishing boats and wooden gullets (daily, sunset and weekly cruises) jostle with the yachts of the rich and famous.
The Marina is lined with quiet bars and restaurants and has a sophisticated atmosphere where people pass many an hour watching the boats come and go. Next to the Marina is the bazaar – a pedestrianised area of narrow streets full of shops, restaurants & bars.
Whether you want to shop, eat, party or just relax, Bodrum has something for everyone. The many restaurants cater for all tastes, from traditional Turkish food to a variety of far Eastern and European cuisine. Bodrum remains open until the crack of dawn and most shops are open until midnight, perhaps the best time to shop as the cool of the evening is more comfortable.
The weekly market, located next to the bus station, is held on Tuesdays and is popular with tourists looking for a bargain. Dolmus, which means shared taxi, is the local form of transport and offers an excellent, regular network across the whole of the peninsula.
The houses characteristic of Bodrum are small, white-washed houses. The local authorities here do not allow high rise buildings which is probably one of the many reasons Bodrum is popular with both tourists and settlers alike.
