Bodrum Turkey sailor´s travel report visit Bodrum by Yacht
The Bodrum peninsula developed to the most attractive turkish holiday area! There is meanwhile a modern international and national airport only 30 km (25 minutes) from the city (Bodrum-Milas, sign BJV) , and there are several Marinas with all the services and comfort, a sailing holidaymaker might expect, maybe some will find, that it´s "too developed" (these sail quicky to Gökova bay or more easterly)
Yalikavak Marina is located in the inside of Yalikavak-bay
and very close to the airport.
Marina, the boats are moored in a part of the main-harbour,
which is however separated from the open harbour and offers very high quality
high season, August, September, it is very recommended to call in for a
reservation of a
place, because the place is full. It is not possible to moore in front of the
open harbour, because this places are reserved for Gulets and dayboats
from B odrum, so don´t even try it. Unfortunately, there are several Discos
right across the street of the Marina, and it is nearly impossible
o´clock in the morning. So: if you want to join the party-people in the
Discos, you´ll have big fun, if not, sleeping is a nightmare.

Chose a charterboat from turkish port Bodrum Milta Marina or Yalikavak Marina on the north coast of the peninsula
|Bodrum-City itself is full with people from Istanbul, Ankara or Izmir, who have their
here and around. The big Bazaar offers a wide range of everything, you
might expect, several high-class-boutiques sell clothes and more for the
sophisticated (especially in the Marina mall, one should not miss!). Theer
is a restaurant at the Marina´s entrabce and a terrace bar with a nice
view over the Marina to the castle, that you should visit during daytime!
Inside the castle there is a archaeologic museum, and it is very interesting
to have that trip through ancient times!
