Bodrum is a yachting paradise known worldwide with its new and improved marinas attracting super and mega yachts; its virgin, natural coves, and bays that offer absolute serenity, as well as small towns studded along the coastline that boast of remarkable shopping, dining and nightlife experiences. Turkey’s most popular summer destination both for local and international visitors renews itself constantly. Every season Bodrum gets on the summer stage and hosts luxurious spots, boutique pleasures and refined delights for a sumptuous adventure. Renowned for its flat-roof white stone houses, perfect summer weather with close to zero humidity, crystal clear Aegean bays and beautiful nature that shelters various types of citrus, the peninsula promises all the decadence the Mediterranean lifestyle offers. The perfect time to visit Bodrum is in the summertime, from May to October.In ancient times, Bodrum has been best known as the home to one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus built by Artemisia II, who adopted and greatly developed this beautiful Aegean city with roots going back to the fourth century BC. It kept its status as an important and coveted port city throughout history, while changing hands between Persians, Greeks, Italians and Ottomans. While its popularity in Turkey and prominence as an archeological treasure trove became apparent only in the middle of 20th century, it wasn’t until the 1970’s that Bodrum became a haven for beauty seekers, local and worldwide, and it partly owes its fame to the efforts and vision of several entrepreneurs who fell in love with it.
