Lying at the outermost promontory of the Bodrum peninsula, Turgutreis has transformed itself from a fishing village to a bustling holiday resort. A new modern marina has been built to complement its long sandy beach. Together with neighboring Kadikalesi, Turgutreis is a 'Windsurfers' Paradise'. The entire Bodrum peninsula offers wonderful opportunities for water sports such as: water skiing, parasailing, dinghy sailing, windsurfing or canoeing. From Turgutreis you can also take day trips to Bodrum to visit the Castle of St Peter with its amazing maritime museum, or you can experience a day out to Ephesus - one of the best-preserved archaeological sites in the world. Also worth a visit is Pamukkale, one of nature's phenomena where hot mineral waters flow down the mountain and have solidified to form snowy white pools.
