Located only 40 minutes away from Bodrum center by minibus (dolmus), Yaliciftlik is probably one of the best preserved places around the Bodrum peninsula. It has a beautiful sandy beach where you can swim and sunbathe in solitude and is surrounded by crystal clear sea, secluded small bays and beautiful pine forests. Four kilometers from Yaliciftlik ('Beach Farm') you can visit the farming village of Ciftlikkoy. The stone farmhouses are scattered around the hillside, and the main crops are pine honey collected from the beehives in the forests and figs grown in the surrounding orchards. Untouched by tourism, the village offers an interesting insight into local farming life on the Bodrum peninsula.
