Perched at the tip of a long peninsula, away from the buzz of Marmaris, is the small seaside town of Bozburun. Once a sleepy fishing and gulet-building village, today Bozburun is a tranquil and upmarket holiday town, where tourism and local culture blend with charming results; traditional architecture mixes with boutique hotels, making Bozburun a beautiful and peaceful place to stay.
The Bozburun peninsula juts into brilliant blue sea, with forested hills that reach right down to the lapping waves and rocky coastline. The smells of pine, carob and almond waft on the warm breeze, and there are olive and fig groves as well as fields of lavender and wild thyme. Make sure you try the thyme honey produced here – it’s a local speciality that’s famous all over Turkey.
Bozburun is the perfect relaxing choice for discerning travellers. Sit and soak up the views from your hotel swimming pool, dine in traditional fish restaurants and explore the abounding natural beauty here.
The small harbour in Bozburun is as picturesque as they come, with little wooden boats bobbing around in its naturally sheltered waters.
Charter boats head out of the harbour and venture to isolated, hidden coves. Swim in the crystal clear waters and keep your eyes peeled for the loggerhead turtles that survive thanks to conservation efforts in these waters. With hillside hiking trails, weekly markets and quirky little museums, you won’t be short of things to do in Bozburun.
To protect the beauty of the Bozburun peninsula, construction is heavily controlled. So the big hotels found in other Turkish resorts are nowhere to be seen here in Bozburun; instead you’ll find a collection of small, boutique-style luxury hotels and self-catering apartments.
Nestled expertly into the pine-clad hills and offering staggering sea views, tranquillity and luxury touches such as infinity pools, Bozburun’s hotels make for a relaxing and indulgent holiday. If you are on a budget, however, then fear not. There’s an excellent selection of high quality two- and three-star hotels with a great range of amenities and those all-important sea views.
