How to Spend 1 Day in Bodrum

How to Spend 1 Day in Bodrum

Blessed with an idyllic setting along the Turquoise Coast, Bodrum has long been one of Turkey’s most popular seaside resorts and cruise destinations. With just one day, you’ll have enough time to take in the highlights, admire the ocean views, and get a taste of Turkish culture and cuisine. Here’s how to spend one day in Bodrum. 

Morning: Cruise the Coast

The best views of Bodrum are from the water, and there are numerous options for boat cruises. Join a half-day catamaran cruise around the Bodrum Peninsula, or opt for a private boat cruise for a personalized experience and enjoy a delicious lunch onboard. A typical cruise itinerary explores the peninsula’s bays and islands, many of which are only reachable by boat. Perhaps stop to discover the natural caves and hot springs of Black Island, ride a camel along Camel Beach, or marvel at the many tropical fish in Aquarium Bay. Don’t forget your swimsuit—the clear turquoise waters of the Mediterranean are perfect for swimming and snorkeling. 

Afternoon: Sightseeing in the City

It’s possible to reach Bodrum’s main sights on foot, and a guided walking tour will ensure that you maximize your time. Discover Bodrum’s ancient past—the modern city is built on the site of the ancient Greek city of Halicarnassus—as you visit ruins such as the Myndos Gate and Bodrum Amphitheater, which also offers a spectacular view over the city. Pay a visit to the landmark Castle of St. Peter, which affords stunning coastal views and houses the excellent Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Then head to the Palmarina, Bodrum’s lively marina, lined with colorful boats, souvenir shops, bars, and restaurants. 

Night: Drink, Dine, and Dance

Bodrum’s nightlife is legendary, and the aptly named Bodrum Bar Street is buzzing with activity all night long. Enjoy a leisurely dinner at a local restaurant, sample the local spirit raki, and stop at one of the many bars playing traditional Turkish music before dancing into the early hours at one of the city’s beachfront nightclubs. Alternatively, escape the busy beachside bars for a relaxing dinner at the Karnas Vineyards, where you can sample typical Turkish cuisine and discover the region’s fine wines during a guided tasting.
