Situated on the southwest coast of Turkey, the city of Bodrum and its wider region is where you'll find exclusive resorts, quaint villages and ancient attractions, all of which gather alongside a magical coastline. Luxury holidays in the Bodrum Peninsula offer you the chance to scuba dive, fish, surf, and sail in the crystal clear waters of the Turquoise Coast.

The Bodrum Peninsula is an area filled with amazing sights. In Bodrum Town, you can explore fascinating museums or the lively Bodrum Market clothing bazaar. The town is a pleasure to stroll day and night. Along the Turquoise Coast, soft sand beaches along sheltered bays open up to warm waters, while small picturesque islands beckon you to come out for an adventure.

When To Visit

Being on the southwest coast, the Bodrum Peninsula enjoys warm to hot weather throughout the year. You'll get the best sun from June to September with temperatures from 30 degree Celsius and above.

For slightly cooler weather, ideal for exploring the ancient sites of Turkey, try visiting the Bodrum Peninsula in the months of April, May, October and November. These months see average highs around 20 degrees Celsius so you can still enjoy a spot of sunbathing too.

Food & Drink

With influences from the Mediterranean, Asia and the Middle East, plus exotic spices and fresh produce, the cuisine of Turkey is much-loved throughout the world. Enjoy classic Turkish dishes like stuffed zucchini flowers alongside meze platters. Also, sample the local raki, the national drink made from aniseed and distilled grape pomace.

In terms of international cuisine, you’ll find options like Mediterranean seafood dishes, and gourmet Italian pasta and pizzas. Experience fine dining on the beach, or indulge in the buffet-style and a la carte restaurants at your luxury hotel.

Passport & Visas

You should carry some identification with you at all times and it's a good idea to keep a photocopy of your passport. Visitors need a visa to enter Turkey and can apply online for an e-visa before travelling. GOV.UK for more advice on passports, visas and travel.
