More information on this area:
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
On the Bodrum Peninsula buildings are not permitted to be built more than 2 stories high, and there are no buildings higher than 3 stories in the whole Peninsula. This tends to make the area look particularly attractive. Most of the buildings are white washed cubes, similar to those in the Greek Islands. This is because this part of Turkey used to belong to Greece and some of the Greek Islands used to belong to Turkey. As you can imagine, there is a lot of history around the area.
Archaeological excavations have established that human habitation in the Yalikavak area began in around 2000BC, and there are ruins and artefacts from the Carian, Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Ottoman eras. The historic sites such as Sandima, Pasanda (Geris), Kandiba and Termil (Dirmil/Gökçebel) attract visitors from all over the world. Yalikavak is famous for the numerous windmills found in the vicinity. The winds, that until recently turned the vanes of these working windmills, now fill the sails of boats and windsurfs. Another “typical” feature found in abundance here are domed water cisterns which, in the past, were used in times of drought and are now being adapted for artistic and cultural uses.
A 20 minute road journey will take you to Bodrum Centre with its historic castle which was built from 1402 onwards, by the Knights of St John as the Castle of St. Peter or Petronium. The Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is also located in Bodrum town.
Ferry trips to the Greek island of Kos can be made from Turgutreis and Bodrum
Further afield you can visit Ephesus, the largest archaeological site in the world, the stunning pools at Pamukkale, the royal rock tombs at Dalyan, and the temple of Apollo at Didim.
Yalikavak, 18 km away from Bodrum centre on the North Western tip of the Bodrum Peninsula, has grown in size over recent years, but remains still very much a place where the locals welcome holidaymakers with open arms. The permanent inhabitants of Yalikavak number around 6,800 people. Yalikavak is becoming ever more popular as an alternative resort to Bodrum. The small harbour is surrounded by restaurants and bars, and while there is the occasional disco bar, the general atmosphere is quiet, unhurried and relaxed, yet further along the shoreline is a new sophisticated Marina.
Approaching Yalikavak from Bodrum you cannot help but notice the stunning panoramic view of Yalikavak Bay. This fertile coastal region is ideal for sailing and all water sports and attracts many foreign yachts to the Marina and old harbour that once sheltered mainly fishing boats.
FISHING & SEAFOOD
Yalikavak still supports a thriving fishing industry and the restaurants around the picturesque harbour and marina display a wide selection of fresh fish every day. The town is known for its excellent seafood restaurants - try Sait, you won't be disappointed.
Yalikavak has a huge selection of restaurants to suit all tastes.
SHOPPING AND WEEKLY VENDOR'S MARKET
There are many shops in the traffic free centre, selling local wares and tourist items. Every Thursday there is a colourful weekly market split in 2 halves. Clothes, textiles and traditional Turkish wares on one side, and the other with fruit, vegetables, great choices of olives, herbs and spices.
Just a few minutes walk along the shoreline from the centre of Yalikvak is the new Marina. The Marina is home to many large yachts and is visited by yachts from all over the world in summer. It has stylish shops and several restaurants and cafes, plus a seaside 2,500 seater Amphitheatre used for open air concerts and fashion shows during the summer months.
The main beach in Yalikavak is long and narrow and lined with a few restaurants. It is easy to sit back and not worry where your next drink or meal will come from! Yalikavak's beach is never busy and you won't be sandwhiched in amongst sun loungers. Away from the harbour end of town, the quieter the beach becomes. Yalikavak is always said to be a little cooler in the summer than other parts of the region due to the gentle offshore breezes. Whereas Bodrum is hot, in all respects, in summer.
Yalikavak is renowned for its superb sunsets and unspoilt shoreline. Its sparkling clean sea is one of the few remaining abodes of the endangered “Monachus Monachus” Mediterranean seals and therefore a protected area. In 2002 Yalikavak Bay was awarded the "Blue Flag" for its clean waters.
Local buses (Dolmus) go to most local villages as well as Bodrum town and are a cheap way of getting around. Other towns worth a visit by bus are Gundgoan, Gumusluk, Turgutreis. Dolmus mini buses to these run from Yalikavak bus depot regularly all year and more frequently in the summer season

Guest Feedback for holidays at Mavi Su Villa
Stunning Views from Villa and Pool | May 2015
We stayed in this villa in May this year (2015). The villa is situated a short (approx 15-20 min) cab ride from the lovely town of Yalikavak, there are plenty of taxis available from the town at a very reasonable price. The villa is situated on a small gated /guard complex which we could see was very well taken care of with pretty gardens approaching the villa. The road to the villa is a little steep but the taxi will take you to the door so no problem for those with any mobility issues. When we arrived at the villa itself, we were so pleased with our choice, it was modern, bright, clean and had everything we could have needed. The bedrooms were bright and comfortable and each one was colour coordinated with air conditioning and plenty of bathrooms, some bathrooms are shower only but there is also a great jacuzzi in the ensuite for the master bedroom! wonderful after a long day of sightseeing! The villa Is lovely and spacious and was furnished to a very high standard, a very comfortable lounge/dining area inside with TV but also a pretty dining area outside and a bbq was available for enjoying the summer evenings outside. The villa pool was lovely, well maintained with plenty of cushioned sun beds on the spacious patio area. The view from the villa/pool was stunning, with views of the open ocean on one side a views of the lovely bay on the other (which was even more pretty at night with the marina lights). There is also a community infinity pool on the complex. We had a wonderful relaxed stress free stay at this villa and we will certainly be more than happy to return again without hesitation. Wifi is also available.

We feel right at home. The delicious house immediately feels like a warm bath. We were lucky with the weather. Only the first two days were a bit cloudy and light rain. The rest of the days were warm with an agreeable temperature of 25 degrees

Our first choice of villa | June 2015
We had been hoping to staying at this villa for ages and were so pleased when Annie confirmed to us that Mavi Su was available for our dates - it was our first choice of villa and we could not have made a better choice! Everything from our initial enquiry with Annie to being met by Sara and taken to the villa could not have worked better. We also had the comfort and knowledge that Annie knew the villa and so could talk from an informed, personal perspective - we were not simply dealing with an on-line booking and payment system with no guarantee of what we were getting.
The villa is everything and more you could wish for - very spacious, immaculately presented and has lovely touches of luxury and personality throughout. A Welcome Book providing villa information together with the all-inclusive Welcome Pack just made it all so easy and comfortable on arrival. We spent most of our time outside on the patio swimming, resting, reading, admiring the views over the bays and enjoying meals al fresco! The sunsets will stay in my memory for ever. Plenty of space to enjoy some 'me time' too if you want to get away and have an hour or two to yourself. Plenty to do in the local area: fab shops in Yalikavak, good food shopping, any number of restaurants to choose from, beaches, easy access to places of interest and Yali Travel organised a couple of great days out. There was nothing I can think of that was lacking and I spent one of the best holidays I can remember at Mavi Su. A very special villa and I have a lot of very special memories. Thank you for everything!
