There's a long platform jutting on the beach in Turgutreis where local kids jump off to the water. Nice place to swim and try catching fish. It's just beside the marina and overlooking the big mosque.
at the end of the marina, beyond the st. peter's castle, along the cumhuriyet cadessi is where you could find a stretch of sandy beaches wheere you can take a good swim and/or juz laze and sunbathe.
there area a lot of cafes and restaurants along this stretch, sand beanbags and chairs. the view of the castle is on your right side facing the ocean.
if it's an attraction at all, but the bodrum marina is a place to spend your time strolling along the pavements and watch the yachts and boats sail in and away. yachts in small and big sizes, people coming in and out, strollers, wanderers, joggers, people watching while dining at one of the alfresco restaurants especially at the far end juz near the entrance of the st. peter's castle. nice parks with benches - refreshing juz to sit down and watch the world go by. ...and of course the turquoise water of the ocean and the smell of the breeze.
the marina is a nice place to spend the morning and late afternoons.
It’s really nice to see the Marina of Bodrum. Hundreds of beautiful boats, yachts and other sailing boats are there for your eyes and your photo camera. I spent some time there only strolling along the promenade, watching people passing by etc Some of the owners are there all day taking care of their “babies” and some of them are really nice to see. But I think it’s an expensive hobby...
The Marina of Bodrum is right in the center of Bodrum.You can see the beautiful boats while walking around the Bay.Also you can take a daily boat trip..Daily trip are fun..You can swim,sunbathe and see the nearby bays like Akvaryum..It's really like aquarium..You can also find some boats for diving too..
