Weather & Climate

Temperature: Tops 30°C between June and August.

Best time to visit Bodrum: Spring (April-May) or autumn (September-October) where you’ll enjoy comfortable daytime temperatures of around 25°C. Weather in Bodrum means a Mediterranean climate with relatively low humidity. Watch out for spring showers in March, the wettest month.

Getting Around

By minibus: The best way to get around Bodrum is by dolmus (minibus), running regularly all day and, in summer, all night too. Distances between the resorts on the peninsula are quite large, so the minibus makes more sense than a taxi.

By bus: Buses from central Bodrum to other towns depart from the main otogar (bus station).


Early-birds The Bodrum Peninsula gets back on its feet with the tourists returning in spring – even though nothing actually closes down in winter.

Summer festivals July and August are the busiest months for festivals, including the International Bodrum Ballet Festival (late July to early August), staged at the impressive Castle of St Peter, and featuring an array of international dance troupes. The restored Bodrum Amphitheatre seats 13,000 spectators for summer plays.

International DJs: The ‘superclubs’ (including Helikarnos, Club Catamaran and Kuba Bar) often see international performers and DJs at the height of summer.

Holidays in Bodrum

Bodrum Winter Holidays Bodrum Last Minute Holidays Bodrum holiday Summer Holiday

Bodrum is the place to hang out with – or just spot – the rich and famous. Enjoy a celebrity-filled resort with opulent yachts, cruise around the peninsula on a gulet (boat), laze on beaches in nearby Gumbet, then party into the night and see why Bodrum is considered the Saint Tropez of Turkey.

Prices start from £213

In the town itself, pretty Bodrum Resort is loved for its narrow lanes lined with colourful sugar-cube-like houses draped with vines. It’s where you’ll find the buzz and glamour of this resort town. For relaxing beaches, head to Gumbet, a self-contained holiday resort with a large beach, plenty of restaurants and bars. From bustling Bodrum it’s just a few miles to Torba, on the north side of the peninsula; yet this peaceful mountainside village seems a world away, with olive grove-clad hillsides, a tiny harbour with fishing boats and a narrow beach. Bodrum holidays are perfect if you're looking to escape the crowds!.

Bodrum Resort

Cascading down the hillside to the water’s edge, Bodrum’s narrow streets and mass of sugar-cube houses make it one of the prettiest resorts on the Aegean. If the daylight hours are lively, then the twilight hours are positively vibrant when you book a hotel in Bodrum Resort.



Ideal for lazy days on the beach and a lively nightlife. By day guests can enjoy an array of bars and restaurants in an attractive setting, whilst at night, the resort takes on a party atmosphere. Hotels in Gumbet are ideal if you want a self-contained resort yet close to Bodrum Resort.



Torba is a picturesque coastal village with a mountain backdrop, home to a small pebble beach and harbour, from which an occasional ferry runs to Altinkum. Torba has a small selection of cafes and restaurants. Torba hotels nestle around the picturesque bay in the north of the Bodrum Peninsula.
