Bodrum which was the harbour of the ancient city of Halicarnassos, has developed in recent years to become the homeport of hundreds of modern yachts. For instance, after mooring your yacht inside the harbour, you will visit the Castle of Bodrum which will take you back hundreds of years into the past.
In addition to the marina, it is also possible to anchor along the edge of the harbour as well as in the wide bay situated on the east edge of the Castle.
An impressive medieval castle built by the Knights of Rhodes guards the entrance to Bodrum dazzling blue bay, in which the Aegean and the Mediterranean Sea meet. The Castle now houses the Museum of Underwater Archaeology. Known in ancient times as Halicarnossos , Bodrum is the birthplace of Herodotus and the site of King Mausoloses Tomb, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
