After falling under Bodrum’s spell, Cevat Sakir Kabaagaçlı, also known as the ‘Fisherman of Halicarnassus’, has written so passionately about his place of exile that Istanbul intelligentsia started to flock to Bodrum in search of a new, beautiful and liberal hangout.
Ever since, the peninsula has become an increasingly popular destination for discerning travellers who are appreciative of its pristine sea, soothing weather and picturesque beauty. Today, Bodrum is synonymous with beaches and nightlife, known as a popular holiday destination for both the Turkish elite and international jetsetters alike.
