Weather in Bodrum

The climate in Bodrum is moderately Mediterranean. It is better to rest from May to October inclusive. Day trips from Bodrum are available at this time. Since the resort is washed by the waters of the Aegean Sea, and it is cooler than the Mediterranean, the weather here is much milder than on the Antalya coast. The average summer temperature does not rise above 30 degrees, and the sea warms up to a comfortable 24 degrees. In this regard, Bodrum is simply an ideal vacation spot for both the adult generation and for very young tourists.

The resort's air harbor is Milas Airport, located 36 km from the city. The date of the construction of the air harbor is 1997, and quite recently a modern terminal was additionally opened, in connection with which the airport's capacity has doubled.

Hotels and regions

Where is the best place to stay in Bodrum depends on the preferences of the client. Lovers of bars and nightlife will love the Gumbet region. Families with children should opt for Bitez, Ortakent, Turgutreis. For all fans of windsurfing and other water activities, the best place is Göltürkbükü, where there are always big waves on the sea. If you prefer a calm measured pace of life without bars and night discos, then the village of Torba is at your service - olive and pine groves, sandy beaches - the perfect unity with nature.

Hotels rooms in Bodrum is not as diverse as on the Antalya coast. There are mainly premium class hotels, a small selection of "3 stars" hotels and a huge number of apartments and villas. Where is the best place to relax depends on your budget. In Turkey, Bodrum is considered a favorite destination for local stars, athletes, politicians and other VIPs. Due to the comfortable climate, this resort has recently gained popularity among our compatriots. But we would like to draw your attention to the fact that the English-speaking staff are mainly here only in 5-star hotels, the animation is calmer and unobtrusive, the “all-inclusive” system is rather an exception than a constant value.
