Leave the stress behind and slow your life right down with a trip to Bitez in Turkey, where everything is taken in its own sweet stride. This charming, low-key resort on the Bodrum peninsula is a far-cry from its neighbours of Bodrum and Gumbet. Holidays in this corner of Turkey are so laid-back that you'll barely feel the time slip away. Bitez is the epitome of easy-going and carefree. You don't have to worry about planning an itinerary or battling with hordes of holidaymakers for your spot on the sand ' holidays in Bitez are all about relaxing to the max in incredible surroundings. Whether it's bronzing your bod on the narrow beach or paddling in the turquoise shallow waters, Bitez is the place to be if you want to feel the calm.
Just a quick dolmus ride away, a visit to Bodrum will bring you closer to the hustle and bustle of the peninsula that, by staying in Bitez, you avoid altogether. Peruse the bazaar and haggle for a bargain, mosey around the castle that sits proudly in the harbour, or spend the evening sampling the boisterous nightlife ' if you want to enjoy a more spirited day, Bodrum is your answer. Kos
Fancy a day trip to one of the Greek islands? The island of Kos is just a short ferry ride away from Bodrum, with express journeys operating daily. Head over to Kos for the day and explore Kos Town, or head into the rural villages for a chance to appreciate some rustic Greek life.
If you're after something to enjoy for the whole day, an excursion to Ephesus is an absolute must. This ancient city is home to some phenomenal ruins, including an amphitheatre and the library of Celsus.
Dine at a Waterfront Restaurant
While there is no 'nightlife' in its common form, Bitez does have a great selection of waterfront restaurants in which you can pass the time with your loved ones. Whether you're looking for a romantic setting in which to share a Turkish mezze platter whilst looking out over the horizon, or you're after a more family-orientated atmosphere where there are standard western food offerings as well as the more eastern cuisine, taking a walk from your hotel and enjoying the evening in Bitez is a must.
Bathe on the Beach
Watersports including parasailing and windsurfing are rife in the area in and around Bitez, but that doesn't mean that the humble sunbather can't enjoy their slice of the beach, too. With languid turquoise waters as you get closer to the shore, it's a perfect place for a paddle or, if you don't want to get your feet wet, the beach offers sunloungers and parasols for hire.
Relax in a Hamam
A traditional Turkish bath experience is definitely not one to be missed and is completely different to a massage that you may have enjoyed before. From the moment your skin touches the warmed marble, you will feel your aches and pains slip away - you will walk away feeling rejuvenated and fresh as a daisy.
Chilled out, relaxed and rustic, Bitez provides a little bit of traditional Turkey for holidaymakers to fall in love with. Take each day as it comes and use the opportunity to truly relax and unwind. With plenty of attractions, day trips and bustling resorts nearby, you're also perfectly placed to visit somewhere a little livelier if you fancy a change of pace.
Located in the next bay along from Bitez, you can expect something completely different in Gumbet. Vibrant, energetic and lively, a stay in Gumbet will mean that, no matter what the time of day or night, you'll have something to keep you occupied. From the array of watersports and sizeable beaches to the nightlife that lasts until the early hours, if you're looking for somewhere high-spirited, Gumbet is ideal.
