Sun-drenched beaches, popular tourist resorts and ancient ruins all await with our flights to Bodrum.
If you’re thinking about booking a flight to Bodrum, it’ll probably be the beaches that are tempting you – and understandably so. Skirting the Aegean Sea, Bodrum’s coastline is a mix of wide golden expanses and secluded coves hidden in the shadows of rugged mountains. Head away from the sand and you’ll find a thrumming city that’s your gateway to popular resorts like Gumbet and Altinkum. What’s more, flights to Bodrum put you within touching distance of one of the best-preserved classical cities in the world – Ephesus. This is where the Temple of Artemis, one of the Seven Wonders Of The World, once stood. These days, you can still feel its time-worn grandeur as you walk among its crumbling libraries, churches and amphitheatres.
Bodrum Top 5
SPRAWL on the sands at Altinkum beach. Translated it means ‘golden sands’, and that’s exactly what you’ll find on this wide, pillow-soft stretch.
MOSEY around Bodrum’s weekly food market. Thursdays and Fridays see trestle tables bowing under the weight of fruit, veg and spices in every colour of the rainbow.
TUCK into ‘pirzola’. These melt-in-your-mouth lamb chops are seasoned with sumac and thyme and griddled to perfection.
MAKE your way to the aptly-named Bar Street in Gumbet – it’s a road of revelry that packs in everything from cheesy disco joints to good-time Irish pubs.
RELAX in a traditional hammam. These old Turkish bathhouses will wash away your stresses and leave you feeling as good as new in no time.
