The Bodrum Peninsula
As diverse as Turkey itself with a wonderful climate and people


Bodrum Peninsula is situated on the southwest coast of Turkey, in the eastern Aegean cost. The Peninsula extends 42 km in the E-W direction & 6km - 23.8 km in the N-S direction between the bays of Gulluk and Gokova. Covering an area of 649 km2 its highest elevation is measured as 690 m. The Bodrum Peninsula is surrounded by 32 islands and islets and forms a 174 km long coastline. Villages on the north coast were more successful with fishing.

The beautiful Bodrum Peninsula suits holidaymakers interested in a subdued and relaxing atmosphere. Enchanting villages, with self-catering resorts thorugh to guest-houses and small hotels on quiet bays of the peninsula.
Every settlement had its own boatyard, reminiscent of the days when people built their own vessels in their orchards. royal_heights_infinity_pool3 scallop15_sunset

On the southern coast, Bardakci, Gumbet, Icmeler, Bitez, Aktur, Ortakent Yalisi, Karaincir, Aspat, Bagla and Akyarlar have fine, sandy beaches. Campers and windsurfers enjoy Gumbet, and at Bitez colourful sailboards weave skilfully among the masts of yachts in the bay.

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.

See the north coast of the peninsula - Torba, Golturkbuku and Gundogan - by road or, even better, hire a boat and crew to explore the quiet coves, citrus groves and wooded islands. Little windmills which still provide the energy to grind grain, crown hills covered with olive trees. Plenty of old Turkish houses with carved timbers and latticed windows provide examples of the vernacular architectural style. Tuzla Lake, where our apartment is located is, is to the north east of the peninsula overlooking Mandalya Bay and the blue Aegean Sea.

The area here is well known for its rugged coastline and natural beauty and is fast becoming established as a golf haven thanks to Vita Park Golf Resort which opened in 2008 and which provides a challenging 18-hole course which fringes the lake. Worth visiting are Guverncinlik and Gulluk, both delightful and sleepy fishing villages.
