Visit the former fishing village of Yalikavak on the Bodrum Peninsula in western Turkey for a tranquil, sun-soaked villa holiday. This now thriving resort is perfect for all types of travellers thanks to its diverse mix of attractions – from family-friendly beaches and romantic, premium restaurants, to high-octane watersports and a fascinating Old Town. It’s even fit for royalty: Prince Harry and Meghan Markle holidayed here in 2017!
Wander around the tourist and trinket shops in the heart of downtown Yalikavak where restaurants offer traditional menus and a weekly market sells many Turkish delights. Don’t miss meandering around the palm-lined Yalikavak Marina, strewn with superyachts reaching up to 135 metres and home to designer shops, stunning cocktail bars and world-class restaurants including Cipriani and Nusr-et steakhouse.
For a luxury day on the sand, soak up the rays of the Turkish sun at one of the private beach clubs – with temperatures soaring above 30°C during the summer, there’s no better place to cool off. Later on, grab a cold drink and watch the vibrant orange sun sinking into the dazzling Aegean Sea for abundant photo-opportunities.
