The BODRUM Peninsula is in the South West Aegean Region of Tukey and is likened as the ‘St Tropez’ of Turkey. Bodrum being the largest and main town is steeped in history being home to Halikarnassus, the location of the famous Mausoleum of Halikarnassus which was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
Today, the Peninsula towns and villages are the summer hotspots for tourists and offer exclusive resorts (including Yalikavak, Golturkbuku, Gundogan, Torba) and laid-back coastal villages where you can enjoy good swimming in azure waters and upmarket restaurants. Many luxury developments, prestige hotels and spacious private villas are built on the hillside overlooking the latest ‘place to be’ Yalikavak, which is considered the most elite village on the Peninsula. Yalikavak’s luxury yacht marina, Palmarina is the only marina in the area with sophisticated yacht mooring facilities, coupled with equally sophisticated restaurants, shops, café bars it attracts glitz and glamour in people and yachts from all over the World. Since it opened in 2012, the town’s image has changed and is a sought after holiday destination for Turkish families and other nationalities all wanting to buy homes in the area.
