Several low cost airlines fly direct to BODRUM from various airports in the UK and locations across Europe. Airport transfers can be arranged for individuals and groups at a small additional cost.
A jewel of the Aegean, Bodrum has an elegance that sets it apart from other Turkish coastal destinations, from the town’s attractive medieval fortress, palmed promenades and marina district to its fantastic cafes, bars and picturesque backstreets boasting traditional Greek style architecture. Outside of the main town itself one has an entire peninsular to explore, with hundreds of bays, beaches, small villages, harbour towns, ancient sites and walking routes.
The original Turkish riviera, Bodrum is often associated with sun, sea, hedonistic pleasure and opulence. From humble beginnings as a simple fishing village, with a basic old world marina and a few simple eateries, Bodrum’s growth, fuelled predominantly by tourism has been remarkable, some of the worlds most expensive yachts now anchor besides traditional fishing boats, designer shops trade meters away from local farmer markets. And despite the development, some great, some hideous, Bodrum retains much of its enigmatic charm.
Since the writer Cevat Şakir Kabaağaçlı (aka the ‘Fisherman of Halicarnassus’) who fell in love with Bodrum after being exiled there in 1925, wrote about its charms in the 40s, Bodrum has attracted a steady stream of intellectuals, artists and writers who came for the easy going coastal lifestyle. Their imprint on Bodrum was an arty integrity, this, together with urban planners who have sought to preserve Bodrum’s essential Aegean character, is what has protected Bodrum from the pitfalls of mass tourism that has marred so many other coastal villages around the country.
