Bodrum is an increasingly popular tourist destination in Turkey’s south-western coastal region, where Greek and Turkish islands mingle over the stunningly blue Aegean Sea. Located at the entrance to the Gulf of Gokova, Bodrum naturally attracts travelers looking for the usual beach holiday, complete with a buzzing nightlife with outdoor DJ sets. However, this is not all that Bodrum has to offer. As in most Turkish cities, there are plenty of sights for history buffs to see, such as St. Peter’s Castle (also known simply as Bodrum Castle) which, along with fascinating museums such as the Bodrum Museum, brings a special atmosphere to the city’s main port for underwater archaeology. An exceptional holiday industry also awaits visitors who come to the city for a luxurious Turkish holiday on the breezy beaches of Bardakci Cove.
