The glamorous Turkish port city of Bodrum (BJV) is home to what is officially one of the world’s most beautiful bays. Book your flight to Bodrum (BJV) and relax on the nearby beaches or take a stroll through the winding alleyways. These narrow streets extend throughout the old town, which has distinctive whitewashed houses clustered in a semicircle around the marina. Bodrum’s landmark rises high above the city – the mighty Crusader castle of St Peter. Once a quiet fishing village, Bodrum developed into a meeting place for artists and painters in the mid-20th century. Today, it is a favourite holiday destination for many rich Turkish city-dwellers and numerous international celebrities alike.
Bodrum manages to remain effortlessly tranquil despite the large numbers of tourists discovering this pretty city for themselves. The city is home to several interesting sights, some of which are over 2,000 years old. The famous Tomb of King Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, stood here until it was destroyed by an earthquake. Its stones were used by the Knights of St John of Rhodes to build their castle. Since 2011, the castle has housed the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, one of the best museums in Turkey. When you have finished sightseeing, the main town, with its wide selection of restaurants and bars, awaits you. Bodrum is especially famous for its hip open air clubs where warm summer nights turn into day.
The turquoise waters of the Mediterranean are best enjoyed from a café overlooking Bodrum’s harbour. Just a few kilometres outside the city, you will find stunning beaches and numerous bays that invite you to spend long hours bathing and lying in the sun. Here the Aegean Sea is pleasantly warm, crystal clear and has no tides. Water sports enthusiasts can get their fill of diving, snorkelling and sailing and the flat beaches are a vast adventure playground, especially for children. It is possible to visit the island of Kos only 5 km away. You can take the ferry and explore this Greek island easily in a day.
