About Turgutreis

Turgutreis is the second largest town on the Bodrum peninsula.It is named after Admiral Turgut Reis who was born in the village of Karabag which overlooks T'reis on the hillside above the town and where there is a statue to the Admiral in the village square. Turgut Reis was also known as "Dragut" he died of his wounds at the seige of Malta on 23rd June 1563.The town holds a three day festival around June 23rd each year, when Turkish navel warships visit the bay and military bands and entertainers hold concerts in Ataturk Square.

Getting around Turgutreis

Local buses ( Dolmus ) go to most local villages as well as Bodrum and are a cheap way of getting around.Other places worth a visit by bus are Yalikavak, Gumusluk, Akyarlar, Karaincir and buses to these run about every 20 mins or so untill late at night.

Turgutreis attractions

There are four large supermarkets and numerous local shops.There is also a new marina opened in 2005 where outlets for Armani, Helly Hanson,Gat etc are found as well as more up market eateries but not over priced.It is worth using the Turkish restaurants as well as the touristy ones as they are good value and the food is excellent.

Turgutreis restaurants

There are over 120 bars and restaurants in town and most restaurants are of a good standard.

Turgutreis day trips

Turgutreis is a quieter option to the more touristy resorts close by such as Bodrum and Gumbet.There is a good beach and as it is on the tip of the Bodrum peninsula the water quality is very good due to the currents passing through between the headland and adjacent islands.The Greek islands of Kos, Pserimos and Kalymnos are close by and from June to October the ferry leaves Turgutreis for day visits to Kos.

Turgutreis events

The main event of the summer is Turgut Reis day which commemorates the death of Admiral Turgut Reis who was born in Karabag.
Throughout the season there are several sailing regatta's based on the marina. Races are organised around the islands offshore.

Turgutreis: Dolmus from Turgutreis
03 Oct 2010 by Victor Bruggeman
Hello there,
I am from Belgium and we're going on holiday to Yalikavak, I think 20 km from Turgutreis. We have friends staying in Turgutreis. What we like to know: Is there a direct connection between Turgutreis and yalikavak by dolmus or do we have to go first to Bodrum?
Thanks for eventual info
