If you want to stretch your legs, there’s plenty to see away from the sand, and the region represents a fascinating blend of natural beauty and local culture. The Bodrum area has been inhabited for thousands of years, and these peoples have all left their marks on the surrounding landscape. The remnants of one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, the Mausoleum of Mausolus, are here, as well as the Theatre of Halicarnassus. There are also more modern architectural marvels, such as the castle, alongside several mosques.
If you’re given the chance, make sure you join in with some of the local festivals. These aren’t confined to the summer months, making Bodrum a great year-round destination.
