Turgutreis - The Place

Turgutreis is a charming town offering a relaxing welcome to its summer holidaymakers. Surrounded by mountains and pine clad hills, it spreads out from the harbour with its white houses and mosque spires glinting in the sunlight. Turgutreis lies in a fertile area and is surrounded by citrus groves and orchards. With almost twenty kilometres of beaches, varying from dark sand to pebbles, holidaymakers are spoilt for choice. The sandy beaches slope gently into the sea providing safe bathing for children and weak swimmers. There is a bustling harbour and a modern marina that attracts many luxury yachts. Excursions leave from the harbour to the Greek islands of Kos and Rhodes which are clearly visible from the town. There are also trips to explore the coastline of the Bodrum peninsular which is ideal for scuba diving and snorkelling.

The town has many pavement cafes, bars and restaurants catering for most tastes and there are shops and a market providing holiday essentials as well as the usual gifts and souvenirs. The outskirts of the resort is where the noisier nightlife is found leaving the central area fairly relaxed.

There are many places of interest in the area including the ruins of the original walled town. The renowned archaeological site at Ephesus is not so far away. It is second only to Pompeii in showing well preserved examples of life in Roman times and is well worth a visit.

Turgutreis Nightlife

Turgutreis has many bars and restaurants providing a lively nightlife. Those on the edge of the resort offer live music and there are one or two discos. Many locals as well as tourists enjoy the simple pleasure of evening walks along the waterfront watching the spectacular sight of the sun setting over the islands in the Aegean.

Turgutreis Shopping

Shops, roadside stalls, bazaars and markets are usually selling their goods until late in the evening. Many shops don’t close until midnight. The shop keepers and stall holders have a very proactive approach to selling and you will be offered many ‘bargains’. There are many outlets for leather goods, carpets and gold and silver jewellery. Don’t forget to buy the blue glass beads to protect you from the evil eye!
