What to Do in Bodrum in One Day

Bodrum is a summer vacation must-visit with plenty of activities to choose from in this bustling port city. The marina brimming with yachts and cruise ships, its waterfront promenade packed with vendors and outdoor restaurants, while the town itself features picturesque whitewashed houses.

If you’re in Bodrum and searching for an exciting day of exploration, take a Jeep safari along the Turkish coastline. Not only will you see stunning landscapes but you’ll get to experience true Turkish culture as well.

There’s also a full-day waterpark in nearby Glen Haven that would make an excellent afternoon with your kids. At over 40,000 square meters, it’s one of the biggest parks in the area.

Another fantastic day out in Bodrum is taking a boat tour around the bays and beaches. Not only will you get to take in stunning landscape views, but you’ll also be able to swim in crystal-clear waters!

Hamam: Enjoying a relaxing hot bath in one of Bodrum’s many Turkish hamams is a must-do during your trip. Barakci Hamam, famous for its healing mineral springs, is one of the best to try during your vacation.

Yahsi Beach: Situated near the city center, this beach offers plenty of opportunity to unwind and take in some rays. However, it can get busy during peak tourist times; therefore it’s best to visit early in the morning when there are fewer visitors.
