The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Horizon Sky Beach Resort is situated in the beautiful and historically protected area of 'Iasos' (pronounced ee-ya-sos) a region of Bodrum in the gulf of Gulluk.
The area has much historical and cultural significance leading to stringent laws now curbing commercial inference and property development. Horizon Sky is also located in close proximity of Bodrum International Airport, operating flights throughout the summer season.
With the summer months having an average air and sea temperature in excess of 20 degrees, and an annual average rainfall of only 22 days, only 2 days of which are between June and September.
The Mediterranean climate of Gulluk and Bodrum enjoys mild winters and warm summer weather, with highs of more than 34°C / 93°F in July and August. Bodrum's summer months are reliably sunny.
While summers can get blisteringly hot at times, particular during the hottest months of July and August, the area benefits from the cooling prevailing wind, the Meltemi, which blows refreshing crisp winds from the Aegean from May through to October.
Horizon Sky Beach Resort
Winner of the best developer in Turkey 2010 award with both OPP and Bloomberg. Horizon Sky is the first development in the Bodrum area which will eventually provide an American style clubhouse providing an extensive array of sophisticated lifestyle facilities. Complete with its own beach, the resort will incorporate 12 swimming pools, a rooftop restaurant, mini golf, a sports bar, pool bars, fitness centre, landscaped botanic gardens, relaxation zones and instant free Wi-Fi facilities.
The castle town of Bodrum can be easily reached via water taxi to Gulluk, a pretty coastal village set below a picturesque mountain backdrop. A 35min drive from Gulluk in either a taxi or the local dolomus bus will take you to Bodrum, a buzzing thriving, artisan community where tradition goes hand in hand with designer labels, jewellery and leather goods amid local street markets.
Gulluk Fishing Village

The town of Bodrum is steeped in culture, history and tradition, offering plenty to be explored.
The Castle of the Knights of St John
After the castle in Izmir was destroyed in 1402, the Ottoman Empire granted the Knights of Rhodes to build another elsewhere.
The Knights of St. john used stone from the fallen remains of the Mausoleum and burned marble in pits to produce lime. Taking almost a century to complete, the castle remains one of the most intact relics of the era.
The Underwater Archaeology Museum
Thanks to efforts of Turkish and foreign scholars who carried out successful archaeological digs - both on land and at sea, the castle has turned into one of the greatest Underwater Archaeology museums in the world. The old Spanish Chapel now houses the famous Yassiada Wreck. The Glass Exhibition is stunning, displaying glass objects discovered at Serçe Limani and the hull of the ship. More information
The Myndos Gate
This entrance gate to Halicarnassus is thought to have been constructed in 360 BC. When Alexander the Great came to claim the city, he was unable to pass the deep, broad trench in front of the gate. When the gate was restored a couple of years ago, archaeologists found the remainders of the trench. Next to the gate there is a Turkish cemetery and some vaulted tombs from Hellenistic and Roman periods.
Eating out in Turkey offers infinite possibilities. In addition to those eateries offering traditional Turkish fare, one can find restaurants-a-plenty serving cuisine from all around the globe.
Sampling the delights of the region's cuisine is in itself an adventure. "Must try's" include su böre?i (layers of filo pastry baked with cheese), köpo?lu (fried aubergine and yoghurt) and çiçe?i dolmasi (stuffed squash flower). For "fast food" Turkish style, the Döner ekmek (grilled lamb sliced and sandwiched in thick crust bread) and gözleme (savory pancakes) come highly recommended!
Don't forget to too sample the Turkish mint tea – thought to be one of the best ways of cooling down on a hot summer's day, and Raki – liqueur produced from anise. The latter is best consumed alongside a variety of meze.
