Bodrum Holidays

GENERAL

Overview

Lying to the south west of Turkey and sharing a spot in the Aegean Sea with the Greek Island of Kos, Bodrum is one of the more contemporary European escapes. Modern amenities including clubs, restaurants and leisure parks, fuse seamlessly with traditional bazaars, ancient sites, and authentic local cuisine. With striking shorelines, guaranteed sunshine throughout the summer, and an endless array of cultural landmarks, Bodrum holiday deals have quickly become one of the most sought after short haul favourites.

Places to Go

Aphrodisias Stadium
Add a little element of Ancient Greek culture to your holiday to Turkey and take a trip to the ruins of Aphrodisias Stadium from the sacred city of Aphrodiasias. Built to seat over 30,000 spectators, dating back as far as 2000 BC, the vast stadium is an impressive structure and well worthy of your Bodrum holidays photo album.
Ephesus
Notably well-maintained, Ephesus has been both the home of the Ancient Greeks and the Romans. Situated in the mountainous landscapes on the Aegean shore, it is believed to have been founded as long ago as 10,000 BC.
Kos
Explore more than the Turkish shores on Bodrum package holidays and take a trip to the Greek Island of Kos. From the harbour, enjoy a bite to eat at an authentic Greek taverna, shop the boutiques of the enchanting cobbled side streets, and discover the medieval Kos Knight's Castle.
Kusadasi Market
Holidays in Bodrum wouldn't be complete without a visit to a traditional Turkish bazaar or two. Why not learn to haggle like a local at the popular Kusadasi market. Based slightly outside of the Bodrum region, Kusadasi is one of the acclaimed markets in Turkey and only requires a short journey from the resort. Hundreds of stalls sell everything you can possible imagine within the Grand Bazaar. If you fancy haggling at a market a little closer to home during your holidays to Bodrum, check out Gumbet Market or market day in Turgutreis.

Things to Do

Ride the Slides at Aquapark
With over 25 attractions including chutes, lazy rivers, and wave pools, a day out at Aquapark is a sure way to add some action into all family-friendly Bodrum package holidays. Whether your kids are six or 16, there is something at Aquapark for everyone. Toddler slides, low-key flumes and adrenaline pumping chutes - including Twister and Black Hole - ensure that the whole family is kept happy. Budget for at least one day out at Aquapark and add the fun factor to cheap Bodrum holidays.
Take Time Out at the Turkish Baths
When the grind of daily life has become a little too much for your body to bear, heading to the hammam is recommended. Known across the globe as one of the best treatments and relaxation therapies available, an appointment at the hammam is your ticket to unwind and revive.
Embark on a Bodrum City Tour
Away from the golden sands and gleaming waters of your beachside accommodation, venture into the bustling city of Bodrum. Highlighting the city's eclectic mix of modern-day features, the city tour illustrates how these modern areas blend effortlessly with the area's heritage sites and traditional treasures. Photo hot spots include Myndos Gate and Bodrum market.
Party Rock in Gumbet
The party centre of Bodrum, Gumbet is the up and coming short haul clubbing resort. Forget your hotel lobby for a night or two and check out the scene over on Bar Street! Clubs are open from dusk 'til dawn and you can expect lasers, neon nights, and plenty of party rocking.

Top Holiday Resorts

Altinkum
Just as Bodrum celebrates a diverse cultural mix, Altinkum is a great base for taking a taste of all of the elements available to you in and around Bodrum. Three golden beaches, a pristine port, and many bars and clubs are just a short walk away from the resort of Didim, where historical sites and authentic restaurants add a refined ambiance to your Altinkum adventure. Gumbet
It may well be one of the more popular short haul clubbing destinations of choice but Gumbet hasn't long been established. Based within a small fishing village, Gumbet's recent revamp has seen the resort gain attractive accommodation overlooking blue flag shores, and a fashionable party scene.
With such a variety of activities to choose from, tailoring your Bodrum holiday deals to create your perfect package is simple. Whether you want to step back in time and discover the region's heritage, or simply indulge in the more current amenities, holidays in Bodrum are ideal for everyone.
