More than a million tourists visit Bodrum City each year, drawn by its sandy beaches and luxury hotels.
Appreciate the collections at Castle of St. Peter and Bodrum Maritime Museum. Explore hidden gems such as Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology and Xuma Beach Club. Venture out of the city with trips to Altinkum Beach (in Altinkum), Palamutbükü Plajı (in Palamutbuku) and Herakleia (in Kapikiri). There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Yaliciftlik Sahili, hunt for treasures at Bodrum Bazaar, head outdoors with Outdoor Activities, and get some fabulous bargains at Moden Leather Shop.

For photos, more things to do, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Bodrum City driving holiday planner.
