Bodrum Peninsula

Entering bodrum beautiful coves where you can see blue and green together welcome you.You can escape from the busy beaches and racket into a clear sea…Walking in the mandarin scentedbreeze you will see the cool sea if you fallow the palm trees.Peaceful like Gundogan, a serene hammock and the sound of the mussel seller passing by…These are just some of the reasons to come back here.At some coves loving the sea means loving the wave.People who prefer uncrowded beaches and the generally rocky sea like in Yalikavak, will come across cool and clear water.Those who favor sandy sea like the long golden beaches of Turgutreis and even those who like to camp at Akyarlar and sleep with the sound of waves, can also find coves to suit them.If you go into the open sea on a boat, you can apply a mud mask in Karaada’s caves, known for their healing thermal waters, or after swimming have a freshly brewed cup of tea at the garden of the lokmacı’s (Lokma is a fried fritter in thick syrup) at Göltürkbükü right beside the sea.Maybe you would also like to share some of your bread with a duck swimming in the calm sea.In Bodrum the old settlement used to mostly consist of rows of houses close to the sea.Most of these stone built houses still stand.The windows of the houses are so close to the sea they get covered in salt.Especially the days in Gümüşlük these beaches are occupied by sun beds during the day and fish restaurant tables at night.Especially at Golturkbuku public beach, the rows of lokma makers alongside the shore are enjoyable places for this kind of activity.

If Gümbet can be described as a crowded and crazy beach party, then Bitez and Ortakent are the quiet version of the same beautiful sandy beaches.While Bitez’s wind attracts the surfers, the beach of Ortakent is  a hidden and tranquil cove.If you want to breathe in the city air, and swim in front of hotels and restaurants, the best place is Turgutreis.

There are plenty of alternatives to get away from the rush and crowds.One of them is Bağla.There are many restaurants where you can enjoy delicious Turkish meals.Torba on the other hand is one of the places prefered by artists living in Bodrum.It is a sheltered cove located in the Gulluk bay.
