Located only 6 km away from bustling resort of Bodrum, Torba is a tranquil sea-side village nestled between olive groves and piney woods. Torba bay is calm and crystal clear, teaming with fish and haunted by sea turtles and by the rare Mediterranean monk seal. The shoreline is blessed with secluded coves, ideal for picnics or a private swim. There is a wide range of activities available including: sailing on a traditional Turkish gullet along the beautiful coast, diving in calm shallow reefs or in caverns, walls, drop offs and tunnels, waterskiing, windsurfing, parasailing and dingy-hiring. Despite the recent developments, the village still retains a relaxed, rural ambience.
