If you have a car then it is well worth visiting the following places...

Göltürkbükü situated along the north coast is beautifully situated and popular with the high society of Turkey who sunbathes on wooden jetties which are transformed at night into stylish dining platforms.  The night life here is also excellent although very expensive.

The relatively untouched villages and beaches east of Bodrum are highly recommended as tourism is less pronounced. The carpet villages around Mumcular are excellent in particular ‘Etrin’. The coastline here has several quiet resorts.  Mazi is lovely, reached through pine forests with a sandy beach and magnificent sea views, Yaliciftlik has a pebble beach and excellent restaurants.
