Brilliant sunny beaches and astonishing ancient wonders…
The Bodrum Peninsula is a beautiful portion of Western Turkey, with guaranteed sunshine and a lush landscape dotted with quaint white-washed villages. From the sandy beaches, gaze out over the Greek and Turkish islands scattered across the magnificent Aegean horizon.
Bodrum Town is where you’ll find your fill of history as you patter down the shady cobblestone streets in search of ancient wonder. Visit the site of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. Bodrum Castle is a formidable medieval relic where you’ll hear the story of the Knights Hospitaller. It’s also the location of the renowned Museum of Underwater Archaeology which houses innumerable shipwreck treasures.
While you’re in Bodrum Town, be sure to head down to the harbour and waterfront promenade for fantastic shopping and authentic dining. Lounge around in cool cafes and historic Turkish baths. Venture a little out of town to local fishing villages, perhaps for a little people watching, or in search of a deserted beach.
Enjoy incredible daytrips to the Greek Island of Kos, full of golden sands and archaeologic sites which date as far back as the Mycenaean period. You’re also within easy reach of the world famous Roman ruins and Greek temples of Ephesus.
