Yalikavak has made a name for itself amongst the jet set thanks to its multi million pound Palmarina development. There are now numerous luxury beach bars, clubs and restaurants to visit in the once quiet fishing village. If you want a relaxing day at a quality beach club during your stay on the Bodrum Peninsula you cannot beat Xuma Beach Club.
Yalikavak on Turkey’s Bodrum Peninsula has transformed over the last few years with the development of the multi-billion pound marina which has attracted more visitors than ever to this beautiful seaside resort. Another new addition which is great for families is the Pirates of the Cactus Waterpark that is located just 3km from the centre of Yalikavak in Tilkicik Bay.
With the opening of the impressive Palmarina Bodrum, Yalikavak well and truly placed itself on the map in terms of being one of the most upmarket resorts in Turkey, if not the whole World. Never was this more evident than just a few days ago when the Eclipse, the World’s second largest privately owned super yacht sailed into the Marina with its owner, the Russian oligarch and Chelsea Football Club owner Roman Abramovich, on board.
If you are travelling to the Bodrum Peninsula on holiday you are probably dreaming of days spent lazing on the beach, sipping cocktails in bars along the seafront and generally chilling out. That is all great but Turkey has so much to offer it is a shame not to go out and explore some of the fantastic sights and attractions in southern Turkey. Here are our pick of the Top 5 places you have to visit.
