ALTINKUM - The friendly beach resort of Altinkum is located on the north of the Bodrum Peninsula. The name of Altinkum translated means "Golden Sand" - what an appropriate name! There are 3 main beaches in the resort. They all slope gently and are very safe for families with children. The main beach curves round the beautiful Altinkum Bay creating two further beaches at either end of the town. You can lie and soak up the sun on a sunbed or stay cool under an umbrella, both of which are in plentiful supply and at a reasonable cost (2 sun beds with sun umbrella cost c£5.00). There are a wide variety of watersports located at the end of main beach including, Jet Skis, Water skiing, Windsurfing, Banana Boat Ride, and, for those who think that holidays should be at a more sedate pace, Pedalos.The quietest of the three beaches is "Third Beach" which offers a quieter environment and its waters are clear and sparkling.
SHOPS - The main resort shopping centre is Dolphin Square, near the centre of the resort front. There are also a large number of shops on the seafront. All the shops are open late at night when the area becomes its liveliest. This is your opportunity to pick up a real bargain, especially if you are good at haggling! If you fancy designer clothes but can't normally afford them then many good copy designer items are on sale. If you are looking for jewellery then you will find that the quality of the gold here is excellent with the prices much cheaper than in England.
When shopping for provisions, there are two main supermarkets -GIMA and MIGROS, which caters for most people's tastes, having a wide variety of well-known food, toiletries and kitchen goods. Gima is located between the seafront and the town centre and Migros at the start of the town centre.

However, most international cuisine is catered for here. Most prices are shown in Sterling and many restaurants and shops are happy to accept payment in Sterling. There are numerous bars where you can sit and just watch the world go by. If you fancy a boogie, there are several discos and in the height of the season the resort is very lively. You will find many bars serving snacks, all reasonably priced, throughout the day.
Most restaurants in Altinkum run a free pick up and drop off service if you are using their restaurant.

There is a variety of nightlife and entertainment to choose from ranging from lively bars, clubs to the quieter, relaxed restaurants and bars. the quieter ones are in one of the back strees with the livelier ones by the harbour or Dolphin Square.
PLACES TO VISIT
BODRUM CASTLE - Built by the Knights of Rhodes in the 15th century and dedicated to St. Peter, the castle took 99 years to be finished.
It is built on Zephyrion Island, the original site of the city of Halikarnassos. Stones from the Mausoleum of King Mausolos were used in its construction.
There are 5 towers in this castle, all of which have a name: French, English, Italian, German and Snake towers. The castle covers approximately 30,000 sq. meters.
PAMUKKALE -which is unique in the world with its cascading water from the cliffs forming, crystallized, dazzling white & Frozen Waterfalls.
The thermal waters have been used for therapeutic treatments since the Roman period. Enjoy the therapeutic hot spring waters.
MILETOS - is one of the oldest cities of Ionia,The city was on the point where the Buyuk Menderes ("Meander") flew into the Aegean Sea. Because of the alluviums, Miletos has been remote several times from sea, which explains that one can see today different harbors.
Miletos was also the city of many scientists and philosophers such as Thales, Anaximander, Hekataios (principle source to Herodotos) and closer to us, Isidorus, the architect of Hagia Sophia in Istanbul. Miletos had its alphabet recognized by the Greek world as the official Greek alphabet, basis of the current Latin alphabet.
TEMPLE OF APPOLO - This is a marvellous site and was one of antiquity's most sacred places. Many times looted and burned, the colossal sanctuary still impresses with its elegant beauty surrounded by a double-colonnaded portico. Not far from the archaeological site is the beautiful beach of Altinkum. There are local dolmus’ up to temple of Apollo located in the heart of Ancient town Didyma every 15 minutes from Altinkum. If you like walking, Apollo temple of Didyma is approximately half an hours walk from Altinkum.

Had such a fantastic time, villa was absolutely fabulous. Beach, bar and restaurants all within a few minutes walk. Altinkum a 10 min bus ride away. The villa was excellent value for money and included all the mod cons including Sky TV, IPOD player, washing machine, microwave, linen and towels etc. We were looked after very well by the managing agent and nothing was too much bother. Am looking to book again next year. (Sept 2011)
Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed my holiday in Altinkum. The villa was absolutely gorgeous and spotlessly clean. Can't speak highly enough of all the staff at the blue restaurant down the road, they were all so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I'd recommend the villa to anyone.... just deciding when to book for next year !
