Yaliciftlik has long been known as a hidden gem on Turkey's coastline; over the years, several top-class hotels and small holiday villages have touted it as an “exclusive” destination, only for those in the know. The area still retains its tranquil status, with unspoilt surroundings and fantastic views around the bay from across the resort.
Treks into the nearby mountains and pine forests are an ideal way to escape the afternoon sun and explore the countryside, while the ancient city ruins of Theangela and Syangela are close enough for a fascinating day-trip. Alternatively, take a trip out on the water, either on a glamorous yachting trip or with a diving group.
Yaliciftlik's major attraction is its beach, and the bay the resort lies in, which features spectacular panoramic views, soft sands and sparkling waters, without the crowds and markets that populate many of Turkey's bigger beaches. The promenade has a few small restaurants serving regional dishes, locally-caught fish and freshly-grown produce, while the cafés are ideal for a light snack or refreshments during the day. Explore the hidden coves and inlets along the shore – you're sure to find a secluded part of the beach, perfect for those just looking to relax and enjoy the natural surroundings.
A Yaliciftlik holiday is ideal for walkers and wildlife-lovers, as the countryside around and above the resort promises a wealth of footpaths and cycle paths to explore, with excellent views and a variety of flora and fauna to discover. The pine forests around the area offer shade from the hot midday sun, and an adventurous afternoon out, and the paths through the trees to the top of the hill are the best way to see the area's natural environment. From the peak of the highest hill overlooking the district you can see over the whole resort, and find ruins from the ancient city of Syangela.
Bodrum City, a thriving metropolis of holiday-makers, bustling markets and a vibrant nightlife, is just 30 minutes from Yaliciftlik, ideal for a day trip and not to be missed while on holiday in the Bodrum district. Visit Bodrum Castle and the famous Mausoleum of Halicarnassus, one of the Seven Woders of the Ancient World.
