The towns of Bitez and Turgetreis also boast nice beaches to spend fantastic days basking in the sun, swimming in the shimmering waters and strolling along the shore.

Top 7 travel tips in Bodrum
The Castle of Saint Peter is one of the top landmarks on every visitor’s list. The fortress was built in the 15th century. It has the French Tower and the English Tower with a sculpted lion on the wall, and then the Catineau Tower is the one leading to the dungeons. A mosque was built inside during the reign of the Ottoman sultan Süleyman. Many exhibitions are displayed now inside the walls of the castle. So, the castle was once a military base, a mosque and a prison!2. Visit the old theatre
The old Roman theatre has been restored and from the top tiers you get sweeping views of the mountains. During its heyday it could have held 13,000 spectators. During the summer months, this theatre becomes the venue for concerts and events. Check the calendar if you happen to be in town around those days! You will feel like you are in the era of Halicarnassus.3. Explore the old part of town
Behind the castle you can wander the streets of the old part of town. A maze of narrow pedestrian alleys lined with traditional whitewashed cottages with stones and vines decorating the outdoor walls. The town has been renovated but still keeps the charm of an old fishing village, plenty of cafes, restaurants and lovely boutiques to spend a nice afternoon.4. It’s shopping time!
Need some retail therapy? Make it happen in Bodrum! There is a modern bazaar area with lovely shops with Turkish and Asian textiles, local pottery in varied colours and a myriad of gold shops and beachwear. Mornings on the beach and lazy afternoons wandering the bazaar. Sounds like a plan?5. The yachts and boats of the marina
The azure of the crystal clear Mediterranean waters draw in many sailing lovers. The marina is a little heaven for sea lovers. Sail your own boat, rent a yacht, go out for the day or for a week and take a boat trip to the islands. The offer is wide and varied. Get ready and set sail.6. The old mausoleum
Piles of ancient marble are the remains of what was once one of the seven wonders of the ancient world. The Mausoleum of Mausolus was built in Halicarnassus as the final resting place of King Mausolus. Once finished, the impressive structure was 46 metres high and they decorated it with excellent friezes by Greek sculptors. After the total destruction, some of the stones were used to build the Castle of Saint Peter.7. Museum of Underwater Archaeology, a fascinating attraction
This fascinating museum is located inside the castle of Saint Peter and it is a must. Here you can see several exhibits, perfectly organised, with several artifacts and media displays. Admire the huge amphorae collection, the glass-blowing workshop and the stunning large ship that sunk in the waters of Bodrum. There are also finds recovered from shipwrecks in the Treasure Room and another ship that sunk, in the French Tower.
