Child friendly Bodrum

 

Bodrum is known for its funky jazz bars, so make sure you are staying at one of the many family friendly resorts where someone can run after your kids for an hour or two. Its name is said to come from the vault like ancient ruins in the area as "Bodrum" in Turkish means "cellar" or "underground vault".  Home to many famous Greek intellectuals such as Herodotus, Bodrum has a vibrant yachting scene and cute whitewashed houses.

 

For the kidsintow there are endless water rides and pools at Dedeman Aquapark that is the largest waterpark in the country.  Catering to all age groups from the toddler up, you can find water bikes and even a baby bungee for the adventurous kid. A family taxi with suitable seating such as a baby seat or booster seat to suit your family members will be a must, if your hotel does not have a shuttle to the park.

 

There are literally dozens of beaches fringed with pebbly coves or sandy aprons where calm shallow water can be found for the kids to play in.

 

The not to miss Bodrum Castle overlooking the marina and harbor, is a 15th Century castle that is now the Museum of Underwater Archaeology.  You will need a family taxi with booster or car seats to suit the family members to get to this children's make believe world of towers and spooky hallways. From horse riding to boat trips along the coastline, Bodrum is the perfect place for a family adventure.

 

The international airport, Milas-Bodrum serves both Bodrum and Milas and is 36 km northeast of Bodrum town.
