Tucked away on the south-eastern coast of Turkey, the charming beach resort of Bitez offers a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Modern development has been minimal in this friendly town, which is packed full of traditional Turkish character. Whitewashed houses and shops surround a perfectly curved bay of clean sand, lapped gently by the glittering turquoise sea. Bitez holidays are ideal for couples and families looking to enjoy a slow pace of life in picturesque surroundings. Lush countryside provides an attractive backdrop to Bitez’s town centre, with horseriding trails winding through fragrant mandarin orange groves. Bitez is also within a short drive of the cosmopolitan Bodrum town, which boasts some of the best shopping in Turkey and a host of fascinating historical sights.
Package holidays to Bitez revolve around the spacious beach, which has been awarded the Blue Flag for cleanliness. Here you’ll find children paddling safely in the clear and shallow waters, while sun-worshippers stretch out across the golden sand. A range of adrenaline-pumping water sports is available for more active holidaymakers, with private sections of beach for a quieter bathing experience. Every year Bitez hosts the Bodrum Cup, which attracts sailing enthusiasts from across the Peninsula. Bitez offers spectacular sunset views across the Mediterranean Sea and the Greek Island of Kos, with waterfront restaurants offering al fresco dining in the warm evenings.
