Known in ancient times as Halicarnassus, home to the famous historian Herodotus, Bodrum is the most cosmopolitan and best known of Turkey’s resorts. It first became popular with artists, musicians and actors in the 1960s and ‘70s and quickly established a reputation as a bohemian party capital. Whilst nightlife is still a huge draw, these days it has re-established itself as Turkey’s capital of chic, home to boutique hotels, stylish bars and elegant eateries ensuring a wonderful holiday experience.
Despite its popularity, holidays to Bodrum retain a unique charm and relaxed ambience. It is exceptionally striking, with dazzling whitewashed houses draped in cascades of bright pink and purple bougainvillea. Narrow streets wind down towards the sea and the formidable Castle of St. Peter dominating the resort’s twin bays. The town is overlooked by the remains of the ancient city of Halicarnassus, once ruled by King Mausolus, whose grand tomb or Mausoleum became one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Bodrum was the birthplace of the famous Blue Cruise, the route plyed by the traditional wooden sailing boats known as gulets, and is still the yachting centre of Turkey. Whilst on holiday in Bodrum, take a day trip to explore the stunning coastline and myriad of rocky coves and sandy beaches nearby. Alternatively, the smaller bays, beaches and villages of the Bodrum peninsula are easily accessible by regular dolmus services from the resort centre.
