ABOUT THE BODRUM REGION
An impressive medieval castle built by the Knights of Rhodes guards the entrance to Bodrum's dazzling blue bay, where the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas meet. Indeed, the town's charm is well-known, attracting a diverse population of vacationers who stroll along its long palm-lined waterfront, while elegant yachts crowd the marina.
Close to the main town you can swim in absolutely clear, tideless, warm seas. Underwater divers will be delighted to explore the numerous reefs, caves and majestic rock formations. The waters offer up multicolored sponges of all shapes and sizes, octopi and an impressive variety of other sea life.
The reputation of Bodrum's boatyards goes right back to ancient times, and 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 gained 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, known in the ancient times as Halikarnas which was the capital of Caria, was 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 harbor, the 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 the impossibly narrow streets. Small cafes and the occasional windmill create a picturesque setting.

Bitez is the ideal place to store energy beforehand or the place to rest following raving nights in Bodrum. If you want to absorb the peace and happiness hidden amongst the tumultuous mixture of the green and the blue, sprinkled with the orange rays of the sun, find yourself a corner on the canvas, for you are in the right place but if you are after red hot nightlife, Bitez is not for you.
Just 5 minutes drive from the centre of Bodrum this jewel in the crown with its moon-shaped beachside is surrounded by restaurants, textile shops, cafes and pensions; thus, preventing the noise of traffic reaching the shore. The side streets and roads are clean and impeccably maintained. Long ago Bitez was known as Agacli, vast mandarin groves and many stone houses will warmly greet you as you wander towards the heartland of the town. Mosaic works of a chapel, thought to be built around the 5th or 6th century AD as well as the water cisterns are still intact.
Bitez shores are a heaven for those into windsurfing and sailing. It is recommended for everybody to take a walk on the promenade, whistling the tunes of the well known and sad song dedicated to the immortal love between Cakir Gussun and Halil Efe this is not Aspat my dear Halil lo this is Bitez Beach, where the bullet wound pierced my soul.
