The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Bodrum was known in ancient times as Halikarnas. It was the birthplace of Herodotus and the site of King Mausolou's Tomb (4th century B.C.), as well as one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. In the harbour Bodrum Castle, or the medieval castle of St. Peter, is a classic 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 scenic view from Goktepe, nearby, is much photographed by visitors to the Museum's 2nd century theater.
This impressive medieval castle built by the Knights of Rhodes guards the entrance to Bodrum's dazzling blue bay, in which the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas meet. 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.
Not far from town, 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 offer up multicolored sponges of all shapes and sizes, octopi and an immense variety of other sea life.
The reputation of Bodrum's boatyards dates back to ancient times, and even today, craftsmen are still building 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 center 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.
The beautiful Bodrum Peninsula suits holidaymakers interested in a quiet 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 that you will find 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.

Introduction to Küçükbuk
Küçükbuk, which translates to “Small Bay”, lives up to it's name. Even though there aren't a lot of amenities here besides a selection of small pensions, eateries and a few shops, Gündogan is only about a couple of kilometres away, where there are more shops, restaurants and amenities within easy reach. It is a small, pleasant village situated between Gündogan and Hebil Koy, and is a part of the Gündogan municipality.
