A Peninsula of promise

Book a Bodrum holiday with confidence at The Co-operative Travel. The Bodrum Peninsula at the western tip of Turkey juts into the Aegean Sea at the eastern limit of the Mediterranean and it's a destination that is becoming increasingly popular with British tourists.

Part of its new-found popularity is due to the fantastic Mediterranean climate, another factor is the friendly locals, but one of the main reasons is the superb value offered by holidays to Turkey. Cheap holidays don't have to compromise on quality and there are plenty of value breaks available to Bodrum that offer cheaper deals than other comparable European locations.

Adjacent to the town of Bodrum is found one of the bigger Bodrum peninsula resorts - Gumbet. Its beautiful beach serves as the daytime focal point and a superb selection of restaurants, cafes and buzzing clubs provides multiple options for an evening of splendid entertainment.

Holidays to Bodrum can take a variety of forms, from all-inclusive beach resorts to cultural discovery tours or a combination of both. In addition, Bodrum holidays offer not only the very best of western and Asian cultures but also combine the best of ancient and modern attractions.

Bodrum Amphitheatre is one of the best preserved anywhere in the world, dating back to 300 BC it still hosts modern-day performances and provides a stunning natural backdrop to Bodrum Bay. One of the original Seven Wonders of the World - The Mausoleum of Halicarnassus - is also sited at Bodrum. However there's not a lot to see as most of the stones from the building were used to build The Castle of St. Peter, another Bodrum attraction, in the 15th century!

But for sun seekers it is the beaches that prompt them to opt for Bodrum holiday deals. Beautiful Bitez beach is one of the Bodrum Peninsula's growing stars. Long and shallow it is perfect for families with young children and is fast becoming a water sports haven. If you would like a change of pace you can take a boat trip to Greece and visit the island of Kos.
