Bodrum is one of the centre of the Turkish Tourist industry and is the market town for the Bodrum Peninsula which consists of a number of towns and villages nestling on the edge of the Coast. One can pick Antalya or Marmaris too, but I did not want to visit any historical sites.
1. Take a dolmus (mini local bus) from the central bus station to the Tropical Camel Beach. It takes approx. 30min. from the bus station to the Camel Beach.The sea and the beach is one of the greatest in the Bodrum Peninsula.
2. Yacht Charter in Aegean Sea
i)Every coastal destination on the Bodrum Peninsula offers a selection of day boat trips. There’s an experience to match your needs; you just have to make a little bit of effort to select the right one.
ii)Avoid the cheap trips touted by the Travel Agents where you could be squashed on a party boat for 70, and served a mediocre lunch. Instead, head down to your local boat harbour (before 10am or after 6pm) and find one of the smaller (max 15-20 passengers), independently run boats.
iii) If you've more days, then do not miss the 3 day yacht stay they offer.
3. Bodrum is famous for its night life which goes on till 5am! These are the must go clubs:
i) Halikarnass club
ii) Catamaran Bost club
iii) Gumblet vicinity
iv) Aquatica - If you are looking for crazy day parties and a unique summer experience then try out this Floating Beach Club. It is located on the sea, in an untouched secluded bay, between Bodrum and Gumbet (access by shuttle boats). This concept offers day parties with international djs, food, drinks, various watersports, and much more. It is open everyday (11am till 8pm) from mid june to mid september.
4. Scuba Diving - There are many diving clubs doing daily scuba diving tours all around the region, fees usually include lunch and snacks prepared on boat.
5. Bodrum Castle
6. Shopping in Bodrum market is an amazing experience. Yes, they do bargain a lot. Also, Bodrum shopping is way cheaper than Istanbul specially for first copy designer bags.
