Bodrum Turkey sailor´s travel report visit Bodrum by Yacht

Bodrum view to the caste over the Milta Marina Bodrum City Turkey

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)

The Bodrum Yalikavak Marina is located in the inside of Yalikavak-bay and very close to the airport.
On the most westerly part of Bodrum peninsula, there is Turgut Reis Marina , which is Port of Entry as well, and offers a wide range of high class services. One of the most famous and best recommended yacht-maintenancecompanies is located here: Yachtworks, managed by Yusuf Civelekoglu and Can Süretli.
This Marina is located perfect, if you come from Kusadasi in the north or from Greece, Dodecanes islands to check in to Turkey. Not far away is the beautiful bay of Gümüslük, where the famous fish-tavernas directly on the shore are full every evening with turkish tourists from Bodrum.
The bus from Turgut Reis goes regularily to Bodrum, and even a Taxi is reasonable. Turgut Reis offers everything, that a sailor can expect, there are fantastic supermarkets directly at the Marina´s entrance, niche city with ambiance and by for not so noisy like Bodrum-City.

In Bodrum-City, Milta 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 services! In 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 to close an eye before 4 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.

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!
