Bodrum is an increasingly popular destination in the southwestern coastal region of Turkey, where Greek and Turkish islands mingle together across the fantastically blue Aegean Sea. Lying at the entrance of the Gulf of Gökova, Bodrum naturally draws travelers looking for the usual beach getaway, including a vibrant nightlife of outdoor DJ sets. However, this is not all Bodrum has to offer. Like in most Turkish cities, fans of history will have plenty of sites to see, like St. Peter's Castle (also simply referred to as Bodrum Castle), which brings a special atmosphere to the city's main marina along with fascinating museums like the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archeology. An exceptional resort industry also awaits visitors coming to town seeking a luxurious Turkish vacation on the breezy beaches of Bardakci Cove. Here is a list of the most fabulous resorts to choose from.
