If you have a holiday property in Bodrum , discover what you can do in summer time below.
There is plenty more than just nightlife in Bodrum to enjoy, its attractions can keep you blissfully occupied throughout the day with horse riding, river rafting, jeep safaris and parasailing for those who like to be adventurous. There are two aqua parks to provide hours of fun in the sun with the hair raising kamikaze slide and near vertical water slides offering plenty to keep the younger members as well as the adults in the family entertained.
A diving centre offers courses at all levels with equipment provided and sea temperatures around 25 degrees it’s a great opportunity to try something new or improve on your current skills while seeing the amazing underwater sea life.
The Castle of St Peter is worth a visit and dates back to the 15th century and is the peninsula’s grand landmark, inside you will find Bodrum’s Museum of Underwater Archaeology with original shipwrecks and their treasures on show. Also in the Castle is the French Tower where the remains of a great and powerful woman lie. Though popularly said to belong to Queen Ada (a Carian princess who died sometime between 360 BC and 325 BC aged 29, and whose tomb was discovered by Turkish archaeologists in 1989), there is no concrete evidence for this. Buried with a gold crown, necklace, bracelets, rings and an exquisite wreath of gold myrtle leaves, her identity doesn't lessen the incredible value of the find, or how about strolling around the remains of the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, once boasting 36 columns and a 24 step pyramid.
As the sunsets why not head to the marina for some of Bodrum’s finest dining. Grab a table in the open courtyard to catch the summer breeze at Küba Bar and Restaurant, a chic and elegant centre for Mediterranean cuisine. Another experience worth enjoying is one of the three restaurants at the Marina Yacht Club, serving everything from fresh lobster to Turkish kebabs. There are also plenty of laid back cafes, bars and restaurants for family meals out where you can enjoy the views along the waterfront.
