An impressive medieval castle built by the Knights of Rhodes guards the entrance to Bodrum´s dazzling blue bay, in which the Aegean and the Mediterranean Seas meet. The town´s charm is well-known, attracting a diverse population of vacationers who stroll along its long palm-lined waterfront, while elegant yachts crowd the marina .
Not far from town, you can swim in absolutely clear, tideless, warm seas. Underwater divers, especially, will want to explore the numerous reefs, caves and majestic rock formations. The waters offer up multicolored sponges of all shapes and sizes, octopi and an immense variety of other aquatic life.
