Bodrum

Bodrum is one of Turkey’s most talked about holiday resorts in Turkey. This game is greatly due to the Fisherman of Halicarnassos who did so much to promote it, who caused our intellectuals to fall in love wtih the place, so much so that now many of writers and artists can be found for most the year in Bodrum.
Entertainment is definitely added to holidays in the town. In Bodrum holidays are divided into two. During the day it is time to swim in extremely blue bays, to leave your body to the hot sunshine and in other words to rest and get ready for the night. once the sun sets and the stars begins to fill the sky another call of life is heard. This is the call of the Bodrum nights. The restaurants are ready fort he night, on the water front, in nearby villages, on streets of white houeses and on the hills.
Bodrum is not only a town of sea, sun and fun nights. The story of civilisation in Bodrum has a history going back 3,000 years. The historian Herodotus says that the city was founded in 1000 BC by the Dorians on the location where the castle is today. In those days the place was an island. The height of Halicarnassus was in the 4th century BC. During the 24 years rule of King Mausolus he made the city the capital of Caria and began construction of the magnificent monument, the Mausoleum, one of the Seven Wonders of the world.

Orak Island

Orak Island is a location where yachts and boats on Gokova tours do not pass without stopping. The island stretches opposite of Kargicik Inlet and has indented shores covered with olive trees in the lower slopes of the hills. There is no settlement on the island but there are sheltered coves that you can anchor at in the North and in the east the sea that is like an aquarium.

Bodrum

Cokertme

Cokertme is a small and picturesque fishing town, that gives you to have a dinner and an overnight stay. This gorgeous bay is surrounded by pine and olive trees and is pleasantly sheltered against the winds. The area allows you to walk on shore and make small strolls in the nature.

Bodrum

Mazi

Mazi is a virgin cove just near Bodrum with extremely clean water. It has not yet been opened up to construction, has a very green character, with monumental trees and stones. The village of Mazi on Gokova shores was built on higher grounds so as to not to be seen by pirates and thus avoid their attacks. The shores of Mazi do not get crowded even in the hottest summer days. Its long beaches and rocks are available both for swimming and fishing.

Bodrum

The Seven Islands

On the southern shores of the Gokova Gulf there is an area that has four islands in front and where a gulf of more then two miles is formed between the coastlines. In all weathers between these islands and coves there is a calm site you can anchor. The island of Martili (Seagull Island) in the west is barren. On its southern part and northern point there are beautiful beaches at which to swim. The other islands are called Uzun (Tall), Zeytinli (Olive) and Kucuk (Small). All have steep and rocky coastlines where there are no beaches. The islands are mostly barren but in the cove areas there are pine forests. The most significant anchoring points in the Yediadalar are Camalti Cove, the port of Bekar (Gokagac Inlet), the port of Karaagac, Babus Inlet, Kufre Cove and Gollu Island. The Camalti Beach and the sea bottom are sandy. The shores are covered with forests. The port of Bekar is like a pool with a diameter of 150 metres. The gulets cannot enter and yachts only go there rarely. The most popular cove for gulets in the area is Kufre. All the coves are linked to each other with dirt paths. There is a shabby restaurant called Yedi Adalar that serves boats at the mouth of Kufre. Right opposite Kufre there is the Gollu Island, which is ideal to moor and for swimming.

Bodrum

Cleaopatra Island (Sedir Island)

Sedir Island is in the Gökova Gulf and is so named because of the numerous cedar trees on the surrounding shores. Kedrai means ‘cedars’, and the durable wood from these trees was particularly used for building ships.
The island has a sandy beach made up of tiny limestone balls, thought to be a natural result of the geological conditions on the island. However, the beautiful sand was reputedly sent by ship from Egypt by Cleopatra, so that she could swim here with her Roman lover, Anthony. Because of this legend, the beach is known as Cleopatra Beach and receives many visitors in the summer months.
We don’t know exactly when the city was founded but we know that Lysander, a naval commander from Sparta, attacked the island in 405 BC, first withdrawing when he met strong resistance, then gaining control of the island with a second assault. Probably because they had angered him, he sold off all the inhabitants as slaves. However, after this the island was inhabited continuously and, after being a guard post of the Knights of Rhodes in the Middle Ages, came under Ottoman rule.
The island is about 700 meters long and the archaeological remains are on the east side. They consist of ramparts, an amphitheatre, an agora, a necropolis and a temple of Apollo which is almost exactly in the centre of the island. This temple was built on a platform and a church was built around it in Byzantine times.

Bodrum

Pabucburnu - Yaliciftlik

Yaliciftlik is at the entrance of the Gulf of Gokova and possibly the best seas of Bodrum are in the small bays to be found here. In the coves of Pabucburnu and Kargicik, the most popular with Bodrum locals in the past, there are now high quality hotels and holiday resorts. The daily boat and gulet tours find an indent in these coves to have their breaks. The hill sloping down to the coves have many walking trails that have a brilliant scenery.
