Hidden gem of Bodrum…

Yalıkavak is a town on Turkey’s Bodrum Peninsula, on the Aegean Sea. It’s known for its marina and beaches, including Yalıkavak Beach, just off Plaj Caddesi (Beach Road) in the center of town. On nearby Küdür Peninsula are the Panormus rock caves, offering views of the coastline. The hills outside Yalıkavak shelter a group of old stone windmills and the abandoned village of Sandıma, with stone houses.

About The Location

Sunbathing on the long strip of sandy beach or one of the wooden jetty’s. isit one of the public beaches on Küdür Peninsular, and maybe a glimpse of the endangered Mediterranean Monk Seal.

Head through Yalikavak town, and nestled in the corner of the harbour breakwater are the day boats from the Yalikavak Cooperative.  There’s the standard offering of South and North.  The South Tours does a loop down to Gümüşlük, and the North Tour ventures out and around the Yalikavak peninsula.
