The town is famous with its very liberal nightlife that attracts straight and gay tourists from all over the world.

Overseeing the town is the famous and stunning 15th century Castle of the Knights of St John. On the east side of Bodrum is a long beach lined with restaurants, cafes, bars, and nightclubs that are typical of a Mediterranean resort. On the west side of Bodrum is the harbor and yacht club, with its elegant yachts, upscale boutique shopping and fashionable restaurants and bars. The town itself is filled with well-preserved white washed buildings with brightly painted wooden windows and doors, covered in red and purple bougainvillea, creating the perfect Mediterranean/Aegean look.

Of course, the beaches and unspoiled bays dotted along the coast of the Bodrum peninsula are famous for their beauty. Imagine yourself swimming in astonishingly clear, warm, tideless, aquamarine seas. Underwater divers can enjoy the watery paradise of reefs, caves and majestic rock formations, as well as the multicolored sponges of all shapes and sizes that coat the seabed, and the incredible variety of aquatic life, including octopus. And you can see the Greek Islands from any spot along the coastline.

A great part of the fascinating atmosphere of Bodrum is its history; remains of which are spread over this ancient city of "Halicarnassus". The tomb of King Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World dating back to the 4th century BC, stands on this land where Herodotus, the father of history, was born. A 1,300 seater theater from the 2nd century BC near Goktepe, is a absolute ‘must see’. And don't miss the Haman, or Turkish baths, a few blocks from the harbor.

And then there is the Bodrum peninsula to explore. The charming villages nestling against secluded bays host a great selection in gay friendly guesthouses. Gumbet and Bitez beaches are great for wind-surfers; Ortakent has the best sandy beaches for a solitary walk; Akyarlar beach is famous for its powdery sand and in Karaincir you can enjoy fun days on wonderful beaches and a fine relaxing atmosphere at night.
The northern side of the peninsula is best to explore by car. The white windmills, that still grind grain, sit among the orange and green olive groves. You will come across the marina in the modern village of Torba, the old towns of Golkoy and Turkbuku, with restaurants and cafés overlooking a bay. A boat trip to Karaada will give you a change to enjoy the warm mineral waters flowing out of rocks in a grotto.

So, whether you looking for relaxation, sun, fun, culture, history, windsurfing, vibrant nightlife, sailing, simple or fine dining, swimming, snorkeling or scuba diving, Bodram, Turkey has it all for the gay and lesbian traveler.
