One of Turkey’s most popular coastal resort towns and the gateway to the picturesque Bodrum Peninsula, Bodrum has a wealth of natural and historical sights right on its doorstep.
Make a beeline for Bodrum’s most striking landmark, the imposing Castle of St Peter. Situated high on the town’s coastal cliffs, the castle houses the fascinating Museum of Underwater Archaeology, most famous for its Bronze Age shipwreck, the Uluburun.
Escape the crowds for a scenic day tour of the Bodrum Peninsula to explore the traditional Turkish villages that line the coast, catch a view of the hilltop windmills or take a boat cruise to Bodrum’s neighboring islands.
You can’t visit the Aegean coast without enjoying the beaches’ fine sands and clear, warm waters. The ones in Bodrum are ideal for swimming and sunbathing, while also providing ample opportunities for snorkeling, scuba diving and windsurfing.
