Why Charter a Yacht in Bodrum, Turkey

Bodrum Castle (Castle of St Peter)

Bodrum’s appeal as a sailing destination has been growing in the past couple of decades.

Bodrum has become a top destination for those who enjoy the combination of modern luxury with the ancient past. Bodrum’s most iconic sight stands on a promontory east of the city’s harbor. Over the past 3,000 years, this location has played host to several magnificent structures, including the famed 4th-century BCE palace of Mausolus. Unfortunately, the building has been lost to history, but in its place stands the iconic Bodrum Castle (Castle of St. Peter). Apart from its turbulent history, the most intriguing aspects of the castle lie in its architecture. There is evidence that some of the building materials were reused and recycled from the Mausoleum of Halicarnassus. Today, the fort is home to the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archeology.
