named after the famous sea captain Turgut Reis, this town has developed quite rapidly becoming the largest settlement on the peninsula after Bodrum.
A distance of 20 kilometers from Bodrum, Turgutreis is spread throughout a rich valley well planted with orchards and vegetable gardens.
Çatal Island and many islands of various sizes fan out in front of the town protecting it from westerly storms. These islands and the sea surrounding them make a spectacular backdrop for the setting sun, providing some of the most beantiful sun-sets in the world.
North of Turgutreis, 23 kilometer from Bodrum, lies Kadikalesi Bay, an area with a long vivid history. The castle from which the village takes its name was built during Hellenistic times.
A wide sandy beach is surrounded by tangerine groves.
