Burgeoning Bodrum

This bustling blissful beach resort has plenty to offer, including architectural glory, historical culture and a vivacious nightlife

Bodrum holidays boast a perfect blend of historical attractions and natural beauty. The district in Turkey is popular during the summer, adding a buzz and excitement to the environment. The selection of beaches across the Aegean Sea range from lively to sedate, offering you a tailor made experience. With resorts such as Torba and Turgutreis only a short drive away, the options of activities is endless.

Wonderful Sights and Eventful Nights

To get away from the hustle and bustle completely, head inland to Ortakent, where many modern and ancient monuments sit beside authentic restaurants minus the masses on the promenade. If you’d like to see neighbouring islands in a more extravagant manner on your holidays to Bodrum, treat yourself to a Bodrum cruise, commencing from the port decorated by Greco-style buildings. Stop off at Bitez harbour where you can grab some Turkish pastry stuffed with cheese and zucchini flower, or a salad with yoghurt and orange marmalade.

In terms of Turkish tourist attractions, Bodrum is a very wealthy place. The preserved sites include the monumental amphitheatre close to Gumbet. Dating back to the 4th century, the amphitheatre was previously used for dramatic plays and gladiator fights. To marvel at another archaeological site head to the Pedasa Antique City where you will come across amazing views and hidden Turkish villages. Another wonder on your holidays in Bodrum is the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. In the rooms of St. Peter’s Castle sit savoured souvenirs from local shipwrecks and collections of ancient artefacts.

If you’re keen on a bit of pampering, Altinkum has just what you need. Exfoliate with a Turkish bath and refresh your skin in a marble steam room. Hop on a warm stone slab for a full body massage to complete an indulgent and relaxing day. When the evening strikes, Bodrum holidays provide a wealth of opportunity to let your hair down. Small to large bars cater to small families and lively groups, with many clubs to choose from playing the best dance floor classics until the early hours of the morning.

Sun, Sea and Sand

Escape the British weather and enjoy a Mediterranean climate. It is beach weather almost all year round and the real sun seekers will get as much as they can handle, with the summer months regularly topping 35 degrees. The sea breeze cools the air somewhat and will allow you to enjoy the stunning Aegean coastline and swim in the up-to 25 degree sea. It is non-stop sunshine between May and October, so there's plenty of time to get a tan on your beach holiday!

Water Sports

Because of the warm sea and the generally calm Aegean Sea, it is great for water sports here. It is a scuba diver's haven, with experienced divers able to explore various offshore volcanic islands whereas beginners can opt for organised lessons on one of the more calm bays. Nearby, Vass is probably the best area for windsurfing – advanced windsurfers will enjoy the busy summer atmosphere. Beginners should look to the more calm area of Pure Windsurfing Centre. Kiteboarding can also be enjoyed at many of the same locations as windsurfing, there really is something to suit all watersport tastes.

Top Beaches

Beach lovers can be very specific about their tastes. Fortunately, a holiday to the Bodrum area comes with a choice of fantastic beaches to soak up the sun. Just a short bus ride from the centre is Bitez Beach, a sandy haven surrounded by trees. You won't be far from historic attractions should you need a break from the sun. A vibrant, water sport-friendly atmosphere can be found at Gumbet Beach, where the party lovers head. Stay during the day and in the evening this beach turns into something of a party hotspot. More peace can be found a little way out of town at Cesme Beach, where many kilometres of golden sandy beaches await.
