About BODRUM HOLIDAYS
The resort of Bodrum, is one of the South Aegean’s most attractive resorts, and steeped in history. The hillside is covered in painted villas adorned with bougainvillea. Narrow streets wind their way down to the sea, and the peaceful setting of its twin harbours offer shelter for yachts. And provides opportunities for trips to nearby islands and beaches and seaside restaurants along the picturesque coastline. The 15th-century crusader Castle of St Peter dominates every part of the town, now home to the fascinating Museum of Underwater Archaeology. The other attraction in town is the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, the crumbling remains of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. As Turkey’s leading seaside resort Bodrum is a popular, yet it remains unspoilt and retains its charming Turkish character.
When To Go

The best time to visit is when it’s slightly hotter from June to September where temperatures can reach high 20s into to 30C.
