In the atmospheric shopping streets you will find local handicrafts such as copper goods, painted ceramics, hand woven carpets and kilims competing with street stalls selling "genuine fake watches", designer name clothing and natural sponges. Jewellery shops abound offering a huge array of beautiful designs and there are fabrics, famed Turkish towelling, boxes of sweet pistachio filled Turkish delight and pastry shops with a tempting selection of sweet and savoury.

The coastline is famed for its crystal clear waters where swimmers and snorkellers will enjoy the deep blue water crowded with huge living sponges, octopus and scarlet starfish.

Bodrum's night life is the best. Dine in one of the elegant restaurants overlooking the marina or in the busy and bustling Restaurant Alley, a vine shaded lantern lit street with outdoor restaurants, one spilling on to the next, authentic live music and impromptu displays of Turkish dancing. The choice of bars is extensive, some loud and blaring, others refined and chic, there is something to suit all age groups.

Basing your holiday on the peninsula allows great access to numerous nearby historical sites.
