Enjoy a lavish holiday in the sun kissed destination of Bodrum. A long stretch of golden sand and glistening waters align along the coast, look inland for a green wash of forestry that make up the mountainous backdrop. This stunning location has been the port of call for the rich and famous for many years, which isn’t surprising, who wouldn’t want to live the life of luxury?
Lucky for sun worshippers, Bodrum is surrounded by several beautiful beaches all along the famous Turkish Riviera. The Mediterranean Sea is calm, clear and shallow by the shore, so families will feel safe enough paddling in its warm waters. Relax on sun loungers, under parasols and enjoy listening to the motion of the waves along the coast.
Many of the all-inclusive hotels own sections of the Bodrum peninsula, which does mean some areas are only accessible to guests. Other hotels, like the ones found in neighbouring Gumbet, often have sun loungers which are free to use if you order a cocktail or two from their bar.
History and culture
Bodrum was once a small, sleepy town where fishing was their main means of income. Today the resort is a vibrant paradise where the rich and famous flock to its stunning, sandy shores. One of the many reasons why this resort is so popular is that there’s a clever blend of tradition mixed with a contemporary lifestyle. This allows guests to lounge on the beach one day, and then easily explore historic landmarks the next. In the area there’s several archaeological sites waiting to be discovered. Including the Museum of Underwater Archaeology in the renown Castle of St Peter and even the ruins of one of the Seven Wonders of the World, The Mausoleum of Mausolus. Bodrum is a fascinating place for a much needed break away.
The lively nightlife in Bodrum is exactly what you need after a long day by the beach. Have a delicious cocktail or two in one of the many friendly bars that line the streets in the city. Bodrum has a wide selection of nightly entertainment for you to enjoy no matter what your preference. Take to the mic for karaoke, have a pint in the Irish bars, or dance to live music in bars like Mandalin. Hop over to neighbouring Gumbet for hilarious themed bars and a fabulous Drag Dreamgirls Show.
In true Bodrum party fashion, dance under the stars till the sun comes up at the legendary Halikarnas outdoor nightclub. The newly refurbished club now has a massive dance floor fitted with Greek style pillars and decor. Cutting edge sound systems play out the latest music to smoke and superb lighting effects. As well as guest DJ’s, Halikarnas often hosts live dance shows, which add to the extravagancy of the venue. Indulge in the VIP treatment and make a reservation for lavish table service all night long.
