-Beaches: Visitors can enjoy the beautiful sunshine while listening to the monotonous whisper of the Aegean while relaxing on the Bitez Beach. Though the beach is pebble and does not offer ideal promenading grounds, it is great for anyone looking to grab a sunbed and work on their tan.
-Nightlife: Night owls will find bar crawls in Bodrum a highly rewarding experience as they party in memorable joints like Aquatica. This beach club actually floats on the sea waters in a secluded bay and offers revellers their favourite poison and the chance to shake a leg to mixes by globally acclaimed DJs.
