About Bodrum

Authentic Turkish seaside escape

For years Bodrum has been hailed as the Turkish seaside town of choice for authentic Turkish style. This lively harbour town not only offers a selection of unmistakably stylish clubs and hotels worthy of the finest European cities, it also manages to retain an authentic atmosphere born from the hectic market stalls, exotic Turkish culture and fresh seaside air.

Flight deals to Bodrum

A wonderfully attractive city that throws up majestic sights such as the imposing St Peter’s Castle, Bodrum is a real hit with holidaymakers. You can fly directly from London Stansted to Bodrum in a shade under four hours, although it may be the case that selecting a service with a stopover in Istanbul will allow you to lower the cost of your flights. The centre of Bodrum takes around 45 minutes to reach by bus , while private transfers and shuttles are popular choices for completing onward journeys. The airport is also equipped with taxi and car hire facilities.

AIRLINEDEPARTRETURNPRICE (per person)

This village of whitewashed cottages draped in vines and tinged with fresh seaside air scores highly on the holiday card with everyone. Up on the hillside, the Manastir Hotel (Mustafa Kemal Caddesi 37) offers chic seclusion for luxury lovers. Asmin Hotel (Alibaba Sokak 9) offers mid-range accommodation seekers a central, comfortable choice with rooms right beside the castle. Or if you want to be near the beach, Gulet Hotel (Cumhuriyet Caddesi 177) has clean, spacious rooms. Budget travellers are in for a treat in Bodrum as well because Melis Pansiyon (Turkkuyusu Caddesi 42) is one of the friendliest places in town.

Some of Bodrum’s best shopping is to be found in the marina area. Boutiques line the main road (Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi), offering local jewellery, ceramics and carpets in addition to fashionable beachwear. Check out the narrow streets behind the castle for more craft shops, while the market is located next to the bus station and highly popular with locals. Head there on a Tuesday for the textiles, and Fridays for the local produce.

For a superb offering of Turkish favourites head to Orfoz (Cumhuriyet Caddesi 177), while if its seafood that gets your tastebuds tingling then you'll be thrilled at the bustling Fish Market (Cevat Sakir Caddesi), where the catch of the day couldn't come fresher. Nazik Ana (Hukumet Sokak 7) is great for rustic local food at cheap prices, perhaps before you hit the plentiful bars in town. The young and beautiful flock to Küba (Neyzen Tevfik Caddesi 62), or for something a little more low key head to Mavi Bar (Cumhuriyet Caddesi 175).
