Bitez Turkey Travel Guide
The beautiful beach resort of Bitez is located on the Bodrum Peninsula in south west Turkey, just 10 minutes from Bodrum town. The Bodrum Peninsula has glorious sandy beaches and beautiful coves lapped by clear blue seas, making Bitez popular for family holidays. The large crescent shaped sand and shingle beach at Bitez has been awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness. Because the bay is sheltered with onshore winds the beach at Bitez is very popular with windsurfers. Other watersports available here include scuba diving, water-skiing, parasailing and sailing, and not forgetting the pedalos which offer heaps of fun for the whole family. Dedeman Waterpark offers a great fun-filled day out for the whole family when you need a break from the beach.
The town of Bitez is much quieter than Bodrum with traditional houses and shops blending well with the more modern hotels and apartments. Although Bitez itself is a quiet and relaxed resort there is plenty to do and see in the surrounding area. There isn’t a awful lot of evening entertainment on offer here apart from the bars and waterside tavernas but there is much livlier entertainment at Bodrum and Gumbet.
Boat trips are very popular with tourists here including trips to the Greek island of Kos, trips on a traditional Turkish gulet, relaxing trips that stop off at the hidden coves for some snorkelling and beach relaxation, catamaran and yacht charters and romantic moonlight cruises.
Explore the beautiful countryside by foot and follow the trails which meander through the pine forests and orange and olive groves. Spring is the best time for walking or hiking in Bitez as the weather is cooler and the fruit groves are in full bloom. Experience the amazing trails on horseback or bicycle which will take you through the countryside where you will discover quaint villages before reaching the amazing coastline where you will marvel at the beautiful views across the Mediterranean and Aegean Seas.
For history entusiasts there are excursions to historical sites including the 3,000 year old ruins of Troy, the temples and theatre of Ephesus, the fabled city of Pergamum, the natural pools of Pamukkale and Bodrum Castle which is just 10 minutes from Bitez.
