Holidays in Turgutreis

Turgutreis Introduction

Turgutreis is a delightful, uncommercial resort located at the western end of the Bodrum Peninsula with wonderful views of the blue Aegean Sea and the nearby Greek islands. The resort’s beach is perfect for families as it slopes gently into the sea but is just as appealing to those who simply want to unwind, take it easy and get a serious tan! There’s a selection of watersports for the more energetic and, for night owls, there’s also some night life.

Why Choose Turgutreis?

Turgutreis has a good selection of bars and restaurants, a choice of mini-markets and shops, a few night spots and a really nice beach. There’s also some excellent sightseeing and it’s perfect for couples and families alike. And it’s only about half an hour by dolmus or taxi from Bodrum with its great shopping and night scene. A lovely resort with something for everyone.

Best Time to Travel

Most returning visitors agree that the best time to visit Turgutreis is in May, June, September and October when the temperatures are perfect – in the high 70s or low 80s. The beach is a little crowded in July and August but it’s a long beach so you’ll always find space. If it’s sea-swimming you like then September and October are great as the Med is at its warmest then.

The Resort

Boasting a long beach, a sea front promenade and some low-key night life, Turgutreis is a great place for a memorable summer holiday. The beach offers a range of watersports, from windsurfing to banana boat rides, and, of course, there are plenty of sunbeds and umbrellas for hire. There’s a good selection of shops, bars and restaurants in the resort (and a weekly market) and there are also regular dolmus services to local towns and villages on the peninsula and, of course, to Bodrum.

Eating & Drinking

Turgutreis offers a good selection of places to eat and drink from doner kebab stalls to excellent local restaurants. There are also coffee-shops, pattiseries, family-run cafes and more up-market bars for that special evening cocktail. There’s something for everyone and, a big bonus, it’s all within easy walking distance.


There’s lots to see in and around Turgutreis and, apart from the numerous boat trips available, including a day trip to the Greek island of Kos (from Bodrum), you can also visit and / or try your hand at every type of water sport in addition to enjoying a Jeep Safari, a Turkish Bath, a visit to Pamukkale and, of course, a not-to-be-missed trip to Ephesus.

Night Life & Shopping

Holidaymakers don’t spend a week or two in Turgutreis for the nightlife and shopping although there are a few low-key nightspots in and around the resort together with a sprinkling of shops and a weekly market. For serious nightlife, Bodrum, with its great club and bar scene, is about half an hour away by taxi or dolmus whilst shopping in the local markets and bazaars in Bodrum is great fun (and easy to get to).
