Harbour and Marina

This fertile coastline with clear waters and a small beach is ideal
for sailing and water sports and attracts many foreign yachts to the
harbour which once sheltered fishing boats. The newly built Port
Bodrum in Yalikavak has brought new visitors and a sleek,
sophisticated new image. The 450 berth marina offers its guests
everything a five-star resort can provide. It also offers some
interesting attractions such as diving and sailing schools.

Attractions and History

Many buildings in the town have undergone sensitive restoration
including the conversion of an old water cistern into an art
gallery. Yalikavak's history goes parallel with that of Bodrum.
Today, most of the archaeological remains are unexcavated sites. It
is suggested that the ancient city of Yalıkavak was situated on top
of one of the hills. Few tombstones and city walls still bear
witness to history of the town. the Carian cave tombs are worth
seeing. The tombs have been carved directly into the rock and
fronted with cut stones. It once contained a funerary urn in the
shape of a ship's prow. Located along the main road are a number of
antique cisterns which have been used by the numerous civilizations.
Many are still used today. Yalikavak is famous for the numerous
windmills found in the vicinity. The winds that until recently
turned the vanes of these working windmills, now fill the sails of
boats and windsurfs. Another “typical” feature found in abundance
here are domed water cisterns which, in the past, were used in times
of drought and are now being adapted for artistic and cultural uses

Bodrum - (17km from apartment)

Bodrum, home of the famous Greek historian Herodotus, is these days
better known as a popular holiday resort. Here you will find
villages of white houses trimmed with purple bougainvillea and miles
of sandy beaches with a variety of water sports.

This charming town attracts a diverse mix of visitors who stroll
along its long palm-lined waterfront, while elegant yachts fill the
marina. Not far from the town, you can swim in clear, tideless, warm
seas. Underwater divers explore the numerous reefs, caves and
majestic rock formations. Bodrum has gained the reputation as the
centre of the Turkish art community with its lively, friendly and
Bohemian atmosphere and many small galleries. The evenings in Bodrum
cater for all tastes from relaxing in one of the many restaurants or
cafes, dining on fresh seafood and other Aegean specialties, to some
of the best clubs in Europe which keep going until dawn!

Myndos at Gumusluk (10minutes from Apartment)

Gumusluk is 45 kilometers from Bodrum and is set amidst tangerine
groves. It is a lively fishing port, with numerous fish restaurants
along the promenade, displaying a wide variety of locally caught
seafood. Thanks to strictly enforced building prohibitions, the sea
front has kept its original appearance and fishing village charm. No
cars are allowed in the central area. The history of the town is at
least as old as that of Bodrum. Gumusluk is the site of a Lelege
