The coastal towns of Turkey have become a favourite destination for luxury yacht charters, and when you rent a yacht in Bodrum you will not be disappointed. Famous for its nightlife, Bodrum has been likened to the French Riviera with an exotic twist, and is a mecca for foodies and party-goers. White washed cubic houses interspersed with palm trees create a peaceful style, while clear, warm waters are ideal for cruising and snorkelling.
Key Cruising Areas: Bodrum is surrounded by beautiful beaches and snorkelling spots teaming with marine life that can only be accessed by boat. Further afield, it is an ideal base to sail across and explore some of the northern Greek Islands such as Kos.
Don’t Miss: Get a real feel for Turkish life by visiting the weekly market. The busy, noisy atmosphere is all part of the fun, where it’s easy to get lost amongst the bustling stalls and towers of Turkish breads!
Best Spots for Wining and Dining: Türkbükü has been dubbed the St Tropez of Turkey. In the evening, sunbeds are replaced with tables as restaurants open along the jetties. Visit the renowned Amavi Restaurant for exquisite seafood, incredible views and live jazz.
Local Culture: There is no shortage of history in Bodrum. Visit the ruins of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus and the nearby Bodrum Amphitheatre for a feel of the ancient world, then visit the Sultan Turkish baths for some traditional pampering!
Best Beach: Although you will not find many sandy beaches, the rocky coast of Bodrum creates stunning scenery. Follow the rocky coastline south to Barbaros Bay where you can sip a refreshing cocktail under wicker umbrellas.
IYC recommends: After a day of snorkelling and sunbathing on your yacht, head to Malades restaurant for a traditional meze plate then it’s time to sample the famous Bodrum nightlife. Halikarnas is an outdoor nightclub with views over the Aegean Sea which guarantees an unforgettable night.
