I quite like the look of the Bodrum Penninsula, does anyone have any recommendations? I like a nice beach, nice restaurants, and a bit of history. Not so intersted in wild party like night clubs but I do like friendly bars. Not interested in men as I already have one so not on the look out :hehe:

All help welcome

thanks

The whole Bodrum Peninsula has history so its just a question of degree of proximity.
Yalıkavak has a nice mix of restaurants and beach as does Gundoğan.
Best thing is to come out and try them out- for a holiday.
It is all very much a personal thing.

Turgutreis is just what you;re looking for, beautiful sunsets, fantastic restaurants and really lovely people. we fell in love with the place 5 years ago and still love it.

Yalikavak is probably the nicest place to go. It's much less commercialised than Bodrum and the other large resorts eg Turgutreis. It has a lovely harbour with waterfront restaurants and bars, but no loud discos and clubs.You would need to organise your holiday yourself, as the tour operators don't go there (that's why it remains special!).

I stand corrected! I didn't think any of them did, at least not last time I looked, but then I don't look very often. Just occasionally, out of interest.

Thanks everyone, I am quite happy to create my own holiday, as we did when we went to Oludeniz. Looking for the smaller hotel and pensions so recommendations are welcome.

Agree, Yalikavak is the place, not sure about Beverley Hills, maybe Beverley Hillbilllies, met the Clamppetts. Only joking, we love Yalikavak, it is as someone said, "Special" long may it last.

Every town in the peninsula has something to recommend it...from the history, archaeology, nightlife, swimming and scuba, boating, eating - it's a great place to holiday for independent travellers, couples, families etc
Love the place, can't choose a favourite bit :roundgrin

Yalikavak has my vote too:) although we loved the view from our aprtment complex first which is a WAY outside of Yali. We visited Gundogan for the first time a few weeks ago, but because it was so windy left after two minutes:). I love Bitez it has such a lovely beach atmosphere during the day, but have never been there at night. Turgetries, for some reason we are drawn to it and spent more time there than Yali now even though it is further away from our site. Gumusluk is lovely very picturesque I'd like to have a night out there only been during the day.

.......it's the "Beverly Hills" of Bodrum,according to an article in the Sunday Times who suggest that Engel and Volkers are to build "21 strikingly modern houses designed by architect Richard Meier,prices start at £1.78 million each"......and there is more very positive reading for Bodrum....depending how you look at it,that is.

Red, Bitez is quite charming at night. just behind the Carmi in the middle of the promenade is a square, the the left hand side ( looking from the beach to the main road is a lovely Frenchified restaurant that does lovely turkish food. It is all " look in the cabinets " choose and wait for the grub to be freshly cooked.
Service is lovely, food is good and reasonably priced. Lovely atmosphere,
customers from all points of the compass.

Mart Kadilleri is the name of the place, small intimate and quite irresistible.

No connection other than being a very happy customer.
Regards, Steve.
