Beautiful Bodrum, Turkey | Private jet charter

Located on Turkey’s south-west coast, the holiday and yachting resort of Bodrum has many attractions for visitors: Historical sites, beautiful beaches, luxury retail, a vibrant nightlife and a selection of boutique five-star hotels. The weather in Bodrum is superb all year round with long dry summers, mild spring and autumns and warm winters.

St Peter’s Castle and Museum of Underwater Archaeology

Just 3km from Gumbet, Bodrum Castle (aka St Peter’s Castle) has a dominant position on a promontory overlooking the Bodrum peninsula. This beautiful 15th-century Crusader castle has been transformed into the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.


People and yacht watch at this wealthy enclave located opposite Bodrum on the Turkish Riviera. Enjoy succulent cuisine at the chic waterfront restaurants as you admire the mega-yachts, then stay on to party in one of the many nightspots in town.

Bardakci Cove

A must visit – Bardakci Cove lies just outside Bodrum harbour – and is an idyllic cove for sunbathing and enjoying the water. You’ll find seafood restaurants, luxury hotels and it’s a popular stop-off point for water taxis – the trip takes just 5 minutes from Bodrum harbour. The perfect location to escape the Turkish summer heat.


Renowned for its tranquil winding cobbled streets, Gumusluk is touristy in high season and for good reason. Its beaches are clean and family friendly, the restaurants all offer superb sea views and serve fresh local provenance, and it has a fascinating history.

Bodrum Amphitheatre

Offering panoramic views across the Peninsula, 4th-century Bodrum Amphitheatre could seat up to 13,000 guests in its heyday. It’s one of the best preserved structures in the Halikarnassus complex and is reachable by a shared taxi (dolmus) in 10 minutes. Book in advance for concerts and festivals that are regularly held here.
