Turgutreis is the second largest town on the Bodrum peninsula. Turgutreis is about 25 kilometers from Bodrum, directly at the tip of the peninsula, opposite of the Greek islands Pserimos and Kalymnos. The town is a popular holiday destination with its 5 kilometres of sandy beaches, waterfront restaurants and bars. The market on saturday also attracts many Holiday goers from surrounding areas and is a very busy and bustling example of middle east with a western touch.
The town is named after the Ottoman admiral Turgut Reis who was born there in 1485. Known in the West as Dragut, Turgut Reis was known for his expeditions on the coasts of Spain, France, Italy and North Africa and for his participation in the Ottoman siege of Malta, where he died during that battle. A few kilometres outside the town center, in Sabanci Park, a waterfront memorial with his statue marks the place where he first set sail.
The coastline consists of several inlets, with steep mountains running parallel to the coast. There are several small islands around Turgutreis. The coast and the sea around the islands is littered with wrecks that are the source of artifacts on display at the Bodrum Museum. The islands give very nice dive sites as well
Turgutreis also has a comfortable marina which has been opend in 2003. You can get ferrys to Kos and Kalymnos, Greece, for one day trips. Source: Wikipedia.org
