The town of Bodrum lies at the gateway to the Bodrum Peninsula, a 650km2 spit of land that separates the Aegean from the Mediterranean and the bays of Gulluk and Gokova. Bodrum makes a great base for exploring the peninsula and is ideal for people searching for a relaxing atmosphere with enchanting villages and secluded bays.

The southern coast of the peninsula offers fine sandy beaches at Bardakci, Gumbet, Icmeler, Bitez, Aktur, Ortakent Yalisi, Karaincir, Aspat, Bagla and Akyarlar with beautiful citrus groves bordering the beach. The quiet coves and wooded islands of the north coast of the peninsula – Torba, Golturkbuku and Gundogan – are best visited by road or, even better, by boat.
