Bodrum is not just the city of Bodrum, it also has a fairly large peninsula. There are many small villages that are accessible via Bodrum. To do this, go to the main bus station. This is the central point of contact for all activities in the area and the peninsula of Bodrum.
On the bus station there are on the one hand buses that carry passengers all over Turkey, to Istanbul, Ankara, Izmir, Antalya up to Agri. On the other hand, there are the minibuses that drive to all villages on the peninsula. For some villages but you have to change. These minibuses carry about 14-15 people in the winter when driving, and on market days it is quite possible that you are very busy.
The next village on the south side is Gümbet. You can reach it by minibus passing through the city, Gumbet is popular for its beach and colorful nightlife. At the beginning of the 90’s Gumbet was a stronghold of the English but meanwhile you can see many different nationalities there.
After Gümbet comes the small village Bitez. It is located in a small valley on the south side of the peninsula and is rather to call peaceful.
The villages Ortakent-Yahsi are also located on the south side of the peninsula. They are in the same valley as Bitez. You are because of your peace and your long beach.
