Ten minutes outside buzzing Bodrum Town is the tiny beach resort of Ortakent. A change of pace from its lively neighbour, Ortakent holidays move at a mellow pace. The village's fragrant citrus groves are situated throughout the charming centre and line the picturesque beaches. It is a wonderful choice for relaxed family and couples' beach holidays, just 45 minutes from Milas Airport.
Ortakent has a choice of Blue Flag awarded beaches with soft, dark sand and an unspoilt shore. It is a beautiful part of the coast for swimming and sunbathing, with a colourful beachfront promenade running behind for drinks and meals throughout the day. Yahsi Beach is a particular favourite, in a prime position with fantastic conditions and facilities.
The Bodrum Peninsula is famously good for water sports. You can head out on the jet skis or hit the surf with some windsurfing lessons, or explore the crystal clear depths on a scuba diving excursion. The resort has facilities for snorkelling as well as scuba divers of all ability levels, with courses and lessons available for beginners.
Ortakent is one of the oldest settlements in the Bodrum area, and has several fascinating monuments to its history. The most impressive is the Mustafa Pasa, a distinctive tower that was one of 13 in the area, built as protection in the 17th century. Around an hour away, the city of Bodrum is a top destination for a day trip for anyone interested in the area's rich history and culture.
The nightlife on Ortakent holidays is relaxed and informal, with a number of pleasant eateries where you can enjoy local specialities. The seafront is the best place to go for a delicious meal, family-friendly restaurants and a handful of easy-going bars that are good spots to sit back, enjoy a cold drink and watch the sun set over the peninsula.
