It’s not just the rich and famous that like to unwind in Bodrum’s serene setting. Holidaymakers have been travelling to this destination for years because of its stunning blue coastline, high-end hotels, historic relevance and, did we mention, lavish lifestyle. The New York Times once dubbed Bodrum as the Saint Tropez of Turkey, as it homes resorts like Tϋrkbϋkϋ, which provides luxury at its finest.
Bodrum is a part of the Turkish Riviera, which is notorious for its stunning beaches. Each resort has a long stretch of golden sand that’s perfect for relaxing on whilst listening to the waves lap up onto the shore.
Torba Beach is particularly charming due to its picturesque setting of a wash of turquoise along the coast and lush, green olive groves that shape the hills inland. The charming fishing port is a relaxing place to sit along the sand and shingle shores and watch the boats on the horizon.
