Bodrum town is a sophisticated seaside escape, and the jewel on Turkey’s stunning Aegean Coast. Boasting a blend of traditional charm and a cosmopolitan vibe, Bodrum holidays have won admirers from all over the world (including the rich and famous). There’s something for everyone to enjoy here, from the ancient castle to the glittering marina. And you won’t be far from one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World either. To top it all off, Gumbet’s non-stop nightlife and a host of stunning beaches are also within easy reach.
Things to do
Bodrum Resort’s sun-kissed waterfront is a hive of activity, with its cosmopolitan marina and the magnificent Bodrum Castle. If you want to take it easy, why not book a leisurely sail along the peninsula? While you’re staying in this historic town, a little sightseeing is in order, and the landmark castle and magnificent Roman theatre are well worth exploring. The town’s popular water park is a brilliant place to cool off, especially if you’re here with the little ones. Dozens of winding waterslides and swimming pools galore will keep kids and grown-ups happy. When evening comes around, the harbour is the place to be. But if you want to go all out, you’ll find late-night bars and clubs down on Bar Street.
Expect a sunny, Mediterranean climate.
