Discovering the Brilliance of Bodrum!

Bodrum is not well known as a chartering destination, but it can easily compete with the best there is to offer through out the rest of the Mediterranean! It is a district and a port city in Mugla Province, in the southwestern Aegean Region of Turkey and has a truly fascinating melange of history, beauty and culture.

It would serve as a magnificent starting point from which to set out and explore the many delights that the Turkish coast offers; be it Marmaris and Knidos or Gocek and Antalya for example. Bodrum itself is famous for housing the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World (though it was unfortunately destroyed by the Crusaders to build Bodrum Castle). Some of the other spectacular sights you can see are the Myndos Gate and City ruins and the Cevat Sakir and Zeki Muren museums to name but a few. Bodrum is a beautiful cosmopolitan and sophisticated city where something is always going on.

The peninsular itself, and the coast around Bodum also houses a wealth of beaches, coves, and islets and there are a huge number of festivals happening through out the year; from ballet to camel wrestling. Why not look to charter PAPA JOE, a traditional Turkish GULET that provides guests with plenty of space as well as luxury. If you are looking for a week or two to transport yourself away from the cares of home or even to celebrate a marriage then look no further. Let PAPA JOE take you on an idyllic tour of Turkey and wash your worries away!
