A picturesque port city with an unrivaled history, Bodrum presides over Turkey's Aegean coast.

Luxury yachts and wooden fishing boats alike parade through the Gulf of Gökova’s turquoise waters and into Bodrum’s ancient harbor. Known as the major port of Halicarnassus in ancient times, the city is now a relaxed destination, famed for its seafood, scenic coastline, and watersport adventures.

    How many ancient amphitheaters are still in use today? One of the best-preserved monuments of ancient Halicarnassus, Bodrum’s historic precursor, Bodrum’s Antique Theater presides over the scenic peninsula and the Aegean sea beyond, all visible as world-famous musicians perform open-air concerts here each summer.

    Boldly patterned woolen kilims hang from the whitewashed walls of Bodrum’s bazaar, a sprawling emporium that fuses the fine treasures of Turkey's handicraft heritage with a vast array of contemporary goods. Farmers from around the area sell fresh produce, herbs, and spices in a tradition that has gone on since ancient times.

  3. Bodrum Castle

    Built in the early 15th century by the Knights of St. John, this towering fortification dramatically perched on rugged coastline over the Bay of Bodrum now houses the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology. The largest museum of its kind, it displays excavations from Mediterranean shipwrecks dating back to the Bronze Age.

  4. Bodrum Harbor

    The ancient port city’s inner harbor, once the docking place of fishing boats and merchant ships, now operates as a luxury yacht marina, speaking to Bodrum’s transformation into the scenic flagship of the Turkish Riviera. Now, the port’s waterfront is lined with lively cafés, trendy bars, and popular nightlife destinations, attracting a discerning, international jet-set crowd.

  5. Ephesus
    5. Ephesus

    A couple hours up the coast from Bodrum sits another ancient capital: now known as Ephesus (Efes, in Turkish), the city was built in the 10th century BC on the site of the former Arzawan capital, and became one of the twelve cities of the Ionian League. Its Temple of Artemis was one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, and the chapel known as the House of the Virgin Mary has been an important Christian pilgrimage site since the 5th century.

Ali Cireli
Concierge at Caresse, a Luxury Collection Resort & Spa, Bodrum

“While the area around Bodrum is home to a number of scenic beaches, one of the most picturesque and secluded is Bitez Beach, on the edge of a secluded bay just west of the city, not far from Caresse. Get a taste of vintage glamour as you recline on yellow-and-white-striped chaise lounges shaded by raffia umbrellas, then go swimming in calm, crystal-clear waters. Hike across bougainvillea-lined hillsides and admire the mesmerizing sea views.”
