Bodrum is one of the top departure points for a yacht charter. It sits on a peninsula in South West Turkey that juts out westwards into the Aegean Sea; even before you head out into the open sea there are plenty of places to see close to the city itself, smaller villages and resorts as well as quiet coves and beaches where you are away from any crowds. Bodrum is a jewel surrounded golden sunsets and azure waters. You really should partake in all the local cuisine, cultural attractions and visit the waterfront outside the famous Bodrum Castle, built from the stones of the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus before or after your charter. Also, it's very famous with high-level marinas, world-famous restaurants, and nightlife.
Bodrum is the best starting point for sailing the Aegean coast of Turkey as well as to the Greek Dodecanese and Cyclades Islands. In the south, The Gokova Gulf and Hisarönü Gulf are acknowledged to be one of the best cruising areas in Europe. With abundant sunshine, crystal clear waters, continuous blue skies, good anchorages, and friendly people, this coast offers many diversities. There are many unspoiled areas rich in natural beauty and in costal settlements and villages.
The season starts in the spring and continues for several months until the end of October. You will be able to get flights into Bodrum-Milas Airport from most regions of Europe during this time. Also, there are ferries operated by ferry companies between Kos Island and Bodrum throughout the summer.
