Bodrum Peninsula is situated on the southwest coast of Turkey, in the eastern Aegean cost. The Peninsula extends 42 km in the E-W direction & 6km – 23.8 km in the N-S direction between the bays of Gulluk and Gokova. The Bodrum Peninsula is surrounded by 32 islands and islets and forms a 174 km long coastline. Villages on the north coast were more successful with fishing. The beautiful Bodrum Peninsula suits people interested in a subdued and relaxing atmosphere. Enchanting villages, with guest-houses and small hotels on quiet bays of the peninsula.
On shore, you can enjoy quiet walks through the orange and tangerine groves bordering the beach. Turgutreis, Gumusluk and Yalikavak, all with excellent beaches, lie on the western side of the peninsula and are ideal for swimming, sunbathing and water sports. See the north coast of the peninsula – Torba, Golturkbuku and Gundogan – by road or, even better, hire a boat and crew to explore the quiet coves, citrus groves and wooded islands.
Little windmills which still provide the energy to grind grain, crown hills covered with olive trees. Plenty of old Turkish houses with carved timbers and latticed windows provide examples of the vernacular architectural style.
