Most of the holidaymakers will stick around Bodrum for a while but if you are looking for a close escape, make your way over to Tuzla Bay. This small fishing village has plenty of charm to make you forget all the stressful hustle and bustle of daily life. There are so many different activities to do here asides from enjoying the natural beauty here. There is even a lake that is separated from the ocean by a narrow land mass. The shallow waters in this bay are a favourite spot by a variety of birds and other wildlife. Take a stroll along the lake, set up a picnic by it or heading back to the village to explore its cobbled lanes and quaint charisma. Perhaps indulge in some bird watching! Asides from the more tranquil activities should you be looking for something more active you might want to head over to the golf course for a quick 9-hole game. At the bay itself there is an array of water sports available, snorkelling, swimming, water skiing to name a few.
From Bodrum other gorgeous bays worth visiting are Longoz Bay, Cokertme Bay and Seven Islands - Kufre and Uzun Liman.
