Luxury holidays in Bodrum Peninsula
When to go
July and August are hot, pricey, busy and buzz-y. If you’re looking for sizzling-hot sunbathing by day and posers’ parties by night, this is the time to come. For a quieter stay, visit in early June, September or October.
PlanesBodrum International Airport is 36km from Bodrum city centre, and around a 45-minute drive. London, Manchester, Amsterdam, Paris and Dusseldorf have direct flights.
BoatsIf you’re lucky enough to have your own super-yacht, you’ve come to the right place. Moor your vessel at the Bodrum Marina waterfront: it will be in good company, surrounded by millionaires’ toys.
AutomobilesCar rental companies based at the airport include Avis. Navigating your way to Bodrum from here is fairly easy; for beach hopping and hilltop-town exploring, we’d advise adding on a SatNav.
TaxisLook out for the sunshine-yellow licensed local taxis, which can be flagged down or hopped into at taxi ranks. Try Turkbuku Taxi (+90 (0)252 377 5639) if you can’t spy any on the horizon. Alternatively, make like the locals and hop on a Dolmus, the traditional Turkish bus, affectionately nicknamed the ‘shared taxi’.
