Bodrum Peninsula & recommended beaches and places to visit..

The Bodrum Peninsula is an area of wonderful diversity, where the simplicity of the villages of the rural surrounding area jostles with the energy of the centre of Bodrum. There are still villages where traditional Turkish life goes on seemingly unaffected by the influence of tourism.  Hidden along the Bodrum coastline, quiet and untouched backwaters with hidden bays, coves and aquamarine waters can still be found.

Kadikalesi is a small beachside village on the road to Turgutreis, with a small sandy beach, jetties and a few restaurants. Above the village stands a Greek church, over one hundred years old and in surprisingly good condition. Greek inscriptions are still visible above the doorway.  The Avta centre featured on this site is situated here. 

Turgutreis is a lively town, with good beaches, shops, marina and a market every Saturday that shouldn’t be missed.

Fener Beach, situated near to Akyarlar has a fine sandy beach which is ideal for children.  Fener Beach is also the best place for windsurfing and kitesurfing on the Bodrum peninsular. 

Bitez is situated on the way to Bodrum.  Bitez is backed by tangerine and olive groves, the sand and shingle beach is long with good facilities for a variety of water sports such as; sailing, windsurfing, waterskiing, wakeboarding and paracending
