By mid-May the sea has warmed up with the days long and sunny. June is perhaps the most perfect month with balmy evenings and delightfully warm seas.

There are several ways to explore the peninsula of Bodrum, the most enjoyable of which is with one of our wonderful gullets or hiring one of our wonderful sailing or motor yachts.
