Best Neighborhoods to Explore in Bodrum

Some visitors are drawn to the activity and vibrancy of Bodrum town, where you’re spoilt for choice with its ancient sights, shopping, as well as restaurants, bars, and clubs.

But just walk down any of its cobbled back-streets, and you’ll find small restaurants that cater to the local Turkish crowd. Here, you’ll get more for your money as well as a relaxing and authentic dining experience.

As well as discovering the quiet back streets of the Tourist hubs, the Bodrum Peninsula has an array of quieter villages to explore. Gundogan, Kucukbuk, Kadikalesi, Gumusluk and Akyarlar are a few of travellers’ favourites.

At the inland villages of Derekoy and Dagbelen you may stand out as one of the few English speaking visitors, and it may be a challenge to order a tea the way you like it, but they both offer a local slice of Turkey, where life is not in a hurry, and the immediacy of today’s modern existence dip slowly out of view like a waning sunset.
