Holidays to Bodrum are ideal for those seeking a pristine beach with crystal clear waters on the Aegean. The accompanying whitewashed houses and narrow streets add to its charm. There are plenty of cheap Bodrum flights, including charter and budget airlines that depart from most of the major regional UK airports and the average flying time is four and a half hours. The Greek island of Kos is only a few km away from the airport and well worth a visit, but Bodrum central is 36 km from the airport, so it's worth considering cheap Bodrum car hire. The resort is at it's most busiest between May and October when the low cost carriers and charter flights are at their peak. Outside of these months, the resort quietens significantly as holidaymakers head further south to resorts around Antalya.
The many hotels and pensions for Bodrum holidays are to be found in the resort of Gumbet. Most are just a short walk to the beach and a large variety of bars, restaurants and discos for those who want to party the night away. There are also deals to be had on villas in nearby Ovacik and some superb beachside hotels on Ortakent Yahsi Beach. Cheap holidays in Bodrum are readily available but do check the reviews, particularly on accommodation at the lower end of the scale as there is a fine line between basic and spartan.
Bodrum holidays are almost invariably beach based but it is worth making time to visit the ancient ruins in the mountains and villages of Sandima, Pedasa and Kiril. Check out the busy markets on Tuesdays. Do try to have a Turkish bath; it is an experience you'll never forget. Finally, don't miss the Mausoleum, one of the seven wonders of the ancient world.
