Bodrum, Turkey - We've got it covered

Owning a property in Bodrum not only offers the opportunity to enjoy an excellent climate, established tourist resort, wealth of local activities, fabulous choice of restaurants and bars and stunning scenery, but also allows you to get a high return on your investment. Bodrum and its surrounding areas has for many years been a popular with tourists and remains one of the most visited areas along the Turkish coast. Homer rightly described Bodrum as 'the land of eternal blue' and throughout history Bodrum, or Halicarnassos as it was referred to in ancient times, has been fought over by those not wanting to share its beauty and favourable coastal location.

Bodrum is a maze of fascinating little winding streets. The narrow lanes leading to the clear blue waters of the Aegean are now lined with all manner of restaurants, shops and bars. It is located on a peninsular between the East and West harbour and for anyone sailing into shore, you can't help but marvel at the pretty white houses and ancient tombs that surround both harbours.

Central Bodrum and the many villages surrounding it have grown rapidly over the last 20 years. Bodrum is ideally suited to year round living and property investment with increasing numbers of Turkish and foreign visitors coming to the area. It's warm climate, cheap cost of living, fair property prices, wealth of historical sites, numerous restaurants and wide range of sporting activities on offer mean it's a well rounded choice for a buy to let, holiday home or permanent residence. For those that enjoy golf or are looking for a golfing investment, Bodrum is again ideal. Vita Park Golf Resort is a new 18 hole golf facility on the shores of Mandalya Bay next to Tuzla Lake. This has created a great deal of interest and there are now many developments springing up in the nearby areas of Bargylium, Gulluk, Tuzla and Guvercinlik that are well worth considering.

Over the years Bodrum has played home to many civilizations and the history of the area is astounding. It was dominated by the Roman Empire, Persians, Macedonians and the Byzantines. Bodrum Castle, still in existence today, was constructed by the Rhodian knights and is well worth a visit on any trip to Bodrum.

The Bodrum Region covers a number of areas, please see individual descriptions below:

Ortakent and Yahsi
Akyarlar and Bagla


The popular area of Bitez lies just 5km from central Bodrum and is serviced by a regular dolmus (bus) service year round. 40km from the airport, the word Bitez actually means full of trees and aptly describes the location as it is covered in citrus and olive groves. It's home to one of the cleanest beaches on the Bodrum peninsular and has a lovely promenade to the rear of the beach offering a growing number of restaurants and cafes, many of them offering free sun beds near the shoreline. The area is relatively unspoilt as yet and attracts those looking for a great location mixed with a little tranquillity!

Ortakent & Yahsi

Situated 7km from the centre, between Bodrum and Turgetreis is Ortakent, one of the oldest settlements in the region. A fascinating area, it plays home to the Mustafa Pasa tower house along with 12 other tower houses still evident. Dating back to 1601, canon embrasures can be seen on the roof and walls. The popular daily boat trip stop of Camel Beach, named due to the camel rides available lies to the West end of the main sandy beach called Yahsi. There are a growing number of developments in this area.

Akyarlar and Bagla Bays

Following along the coastline past Camel Beach and Yashi, looking out towards the Greek Islands are the beautiful coves and bays of Akyarlar and Bagla. Offering truly stunning views and crystal clear waters, these sandy bays are possibly the safest in the region for children. There is not much other than a resort and spa in this area and residential building is prohibited.


Turgutreis is the nearest resort to the Greek island of Kos and is on the Western tip of the Bodrum peninsular 18km from the centre. The area was named after the General Turgutreis following his participation in the Ottoman siege of Malta and a statue commemorating him can be seen just outside the resort in the place he first set sail. It has a large marina with a 500 yacht capacity and has grown rapidly over recent years now playing home to many re-sales, developments and newly built properties. It's a good rounded option for investment offering miles of beaches, an established tourist resort centre with a wealth of restaurants and bars and a popular local market that comes to town every Saturday.


Steeped in history both on land and underwater, just 20km from the centre of Bodrum is Gumusluk, famed as the harbour of ancient Myndos. Popular with those who like to snorkel, the small village and bay is truly fascinating as there's just as much to see underwater as there is on shore! Known for its beauty and seafood restaurants and still quaint and relatively untouched by tourism, the building laws are strict in this area but there are a handful of developments spread along the coast just outside the village centre for those looking for a quiet location.


The winding mountain road that takes you the 18km from Bodrum to the once sleepy seaside village of Yalikavak offers you the opportunity to enjoy some of the most amazing views of the coast and peninsular. Yalikavak is quaint. Its cobbled streets play home to lovely local and seafood restaurants and the sunsets are spectacular! Port Bodrum Marina opened in Yalikavak in 2003 and offers mooring for luxury yachts and smaller fishing boats. The area is becoming more popular with investors and developments can be found around the area including some luxury projects and villas.


The secluded village of Gundogan sits 16km from Bodrum and is relatively small in comparison to other nearby resorts. With a handful of smaller hotels, a few restaurants and constant refreshing breeze have attracted walkers and water-sports enthusiasts with property development only coming to the area recently. There are now a few developments dotted around Gundogan and many plots available for private and custom builds.


On the North shore of the peninsular, around 14km from Bodrum, is the newly named area of Golturkbuku referring to the two small villages of Golkoy and Turkbuku. Once occupied by the Greeks, the area is pretty and has for many years been popular with Turkish and foreign artists, actors and musicians who can often be seen in the local bars and restaurants. The area is growing in popularity and is home to a number of projects and properties for sale.


Torba is q quiet seaside village just 5km from central Bodrum. Now a popular residential area with many developments on offer, it lies on the coast and homes a pebble beach and number of coves and bays ideal to explore by boat. There is an established community here and many bars and restaurants to while away an evening.


Tuzla is now popular due to its proximity to the new Vita Park 18 hole Golf Resort. The area covers over 380 hectares with a lake that attracts a wealth of birdlife including pelicans, egrets and flamingos. This pretty area is also home to Bogazici, a fishing village hosting many seafood restaurants and small stone houses. This is an area to consider if you are seeking a golf property or good buy to let income.


The attractive town and bay of Gulluk lies just 15 minutes from the championship golf course of Vita Park and is ideal if considering a golfing property. The bay itself is steeped in history and has a good choice of local restaurants and bars.
