Beaches is Bodrum has mountains view, water is very clean. But nothing special
A great city with a diverse atmosphere. Tourism combined with local culture combined with ancient history combined with stunning natural scenery in the surrounding peninsula and coves.
Bodrum was conquered by Alexander the Great and is home to the ruins of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Beyond that it's gorgeous. It sits right on the Aegean directly opposite the Greek island of Kos. The only drawback is that it's so popular with tourists that the town is given over a bit to cheesy nightclubs and generic food.
The town from which the Bodrum Peninsula takes it's name. Bodrum is a chic, cosmopolitan town which is equally comfortable as a home to trendy yachting types with it's substantial Marina and Yacht Club; independent travellers with a large number of small hotels and hostels; and a number of large all-inclusive sea-front hotels for European package holiday makers. The other towns on the Peninsula act as dormitories for the main town, as Bodrum itself doesn't have much of a beach. The young at heart tend to stay in Gumbet, which is to the west of Bodrum, while Bitez is for those seeking a quieter pace. The ubiquitous Dolmus (shared-minibus) makes getting around the Peninsula reasonably quick and straightforward.
