With its long, crescent-shaped beach, a variety of watersports and a laid back atmosphere, Bitez is a great place to unwind and enjoy genuine Turkish hospitality. There’s a good selection of beachside bars and restaurants and, just behind the beachfront area there are lots of olive and citrus groves, perfect for an evening stroll.
For serious shopping and also for night owls, Bodrum is just 6kms away and is very easy to get to, day or night, by cheap dolmus or taxi. Bodrum is also great for sightseeing with its magnificent harbour and castle. In Bitez there’s a weekly market and, in May, there’s the Bitez Spring Festival with crafts, music and folk dancing.
