About this location
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
MORE USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT THE BODRUM PENINSULA
Close to the main town of Bodrum you can swim in absolutely clear, tideless, warm seas. Underwater divers, especially, will want to explore the numerous reefs, caves and majestic rock formations. The waters are full of multicoloured sponges of all shapes and sizes, octopi and an immense variety of other aquatic life.
The town itself is dominated by an impressive medieval castle built by the Knights of Rhodes. It guards the entrance to Bodrum's dazzling blue bay, in which the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas come together. The town's charm is well-known, attracting a wide population of vacationers who stroll along its long palm-lined waterfront, while elegant yachts crowd the marina.
Bodrum's boat building yards actually date back to ancient times, and even today, craftsmen still build the traditional yachts: the Tirhandil with a pointed bow and stern, and the Gullets with a broad beam and rounded stern. The latter, especially, are used on excursions and pleasure trips, and in the annual October Cup Race.
Bodrum has achieved the reputation as the centre of the Turkish art community with its lively, friendly and Bohemian atmosphere and many small galleries. This community has encouraged an informal day-time life style and a night-time of excitement. The evenings in Bodrum are for sitting idly in one of the many restaurants, dining on fresh seafood and other Aegean specialties. Afterwards night clubs (some with cabaret) and superb discos keep you going until dawn.
Bodrum was known in ancient times as Halikarnas and was also the birthplace of Herodotus and the site of King Mausolou's Tomb (4th century B.C.), one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In the harbour, Bodrum Castle, or the medieval castle of St. Peter, is a fine example of 15th century crusader architecture, and has been converted into the Museum of Underwater Archeology, with remains dating as far back as the Bronze Age. The stunning panoramic view from Goktepe, nearby, is much photographed by visitors to the Museum's 2nd century theater.
The beautiful Bodrum Peninsula suits holidaymakers interested in a subdued and relaxing atmosphere. Enchanting villages, with guest-houses and small hotels on quiet bays, dot the peninsula. On the southern coast, Bardakci, Gümbet, Bitez, Ortakent, Karaincir, Bagla and Akyarlar have fine, sandy beaches. Campers and wind-surfers enjoy Gümbet, and at Bitez colorful sail boards weave skillfully among the masts of yachts in the bay. On shore you can enjoy quiet walks through the orange and tangerine groves bordering the beach. Ortakent has one of the longest stretches of sandy beach in the area and offers an ideal place for relaxing in solitude. One of the most beautiful beaches on the Bodrum peninsula, Karaincir, is ideal for lively active days by the sea and relaxed, leisurely evenings with local villagers. Finally, Akyarlar enjoys a well-deserved reputation for the fine, powdery sand of its beach, it's also considered as one of the best beaches in the world.
Turgutreis, Gumusluk and Yalikavak, all with excellent beaches, lie on the western side of the peninsula and are ideal for swimming, sunbathing and water sports. In Turgutreis, the birthplace of a great Turkish Ottoman admiral of the same name, you will find a monument honoring him. In the ancient port of Myndos, Gümüslük, you can easily make many friends with the hospitable and out-going local population. In Yalikavak white-washed houses with cascading bougainvillea line narrow streets. Small cafes and the occasional windmill create a picturesque setting.

USEFUL INFORMATION ABOUT BITEZ
Many people renting apartments in Bitez have been drawn here by the famous Bitez beach. The town itself is only 2.5 miles from the main resort of Bodrum. The actual population is officially just over 8,000 although naturally this figure is much higher in the popular summer months.
These days the main source of income is of course from tourism. You will find several hotels and restaurants around the main bay area. However due to the temperate Mediterranean climate, growing crops such as tobacco, citrus and olives is also a lucrative business. To get some of the best sunset and island views head a little inland to the hillsides, especially around the various holiday villas.
When you fancy a break from lazing on the beach you won't be short of ideas. Take one of the many boat tours on offer, including days trips to the neighbouring Greek island of Kos. Explore the many sights in Bodrum; just hop on one of the many minibuses. Visit the local market (Wednesdays and Thursdays).
From May to October the Bitez weather is ideal for water sports and beach fans. Naturally July and August are the hottest months so that may be something to bear in mind. Outside the summer season it's still warm enough for a winter break, but be prepared for the occasional rain shower and retreat to your Bitez apartments!
