Activities on the Bodrum Peninsula
It could be argued that the main reason people choose to holiday in Turkey is for the sunshine, beaches, water sports activities and lively nightlife - which is probably true - but there are so many other ways to enjoy yourself here on the Bodrum peninsula - listed below are 7 of our favourites:-
(1) Traditional Turkish Bath at Bodrum Hamami
Get your skin in tip top condition and ready for the beach with a visit to a traditional Turkish Bath. Wrap yourself in the large "pestamal" (a traditional towel) and enter the hot bathing area to enjoy an exfoliating scrub, massage and foaming wash - after which you can relax on the large, heated marble platform allowing your skin to perspire and cleanse.
(2) Dedeman Aqua Park Bodrum
A great family day out with free shuttle service for all the family (no entry charge for children under 6 years of age) at the largest water and amusement park in Turkey (40,000 m2) with 5 pools and rivers (including Wave Pool) and 24 slides. Are you brave enough to try the Kamikaze Slider?
(3) Bodrum Castle and Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology
Take a trip back in time to the worlds of the ancient mariners who sailed to meet their destiny, shipwrecked on Anatolian shores, and to the medieval Age of the Knights of St John who built Bodrum Castle from stones that once were part of one of the Seven Wonders of the World.
