Gardens full of tangerine trees, a dreamy bay, and delicious culinary adventures…

Welcome to Bitez, the beloved district of Bodrum.

When you turn left from the Bitez junction on the Bodrum-Turgutreis road, towards the beach, you would arrive in Bitez. If you continue on the road that extends in front of the Bodrum Courthouse, you would come across the old village square of Bitez and the “Agacli” neighborhood, now known as the village part of Bitez. Restaurants to explore, tiny shops to discover and of course, the narrow meandering paths leading to Bitez's famous tangerine gardens can be reached from here.

We recommend you take a look at the daily life of Bitez flowing unhurriedly in front of you while having a coffee at the "Ağacli Kadin Kahvesi", an old Bodrum house in the center of the village now serving as a coffee house for women.

If your coffee break is over, you can take a walk on the paths through the “Bag Arasi” (Among the Groves) region amongst the lush tangerine groves, or you can go down to the beach and enjoy the sparkling sea of Bitez coast (Bitez Yalisi).

If you choose the “Bag Arasi” option, you can take a quiet walk on the shaded paths and dried river beds stretching between fragrant lemon and tangerine trees. It is also possible to pamper yourself with some delicious food if you stop by the charming little restaurants and breakfast venues scattered among the gardens during your walk.

When you go down to the beach, Bitez Yalisi, the special name for the shoreline of Bitez, welcomes you. Bitez, one of Bodrum's favorite bays with its pleasant beach and shallow turquoise sea, is lively with its venues along the coast. You will discover a colorful Bitez around you while walking on this beach, which offers a very enjoyable walking track from one end to the other.

The beach of Bitez is generally preferred by families with children, with its sandy beach and shallow sea that does not deepen easily, but if you like deep waters, the beaches in the Aktur area, Bodrum's first cooperative houses, may be more attractive to you. You can try various famous Beach Clubs there.

Let's not forget that Bitez is also one of the well-known beaches in the surfing world. The wind is quite favorable and excellent windsurfing escapades can be found here. You can find many large and small surfing organizations that provide training and rental equipment along the beach or on the beaches in Aktur.

Are you a little hungry after enjoying the sea at Bitez Yalisi during the day? When the sunbeds are up and replaced by tables, you can try the restaurants that compete in flavors along the beach. A delicious dinner awaits you on this lively beach with venues catering to all tastes.

Gorecek Island, which stands parallel to the peninsula extending from Bitez to the Aegean Sea forms a strait between the peninsula that is called “Adabogazi” (The Island Cape).

These two bays and this area, which are very close to each other, are called “Aquarium Bay” among the locals. This region, which is frequented by blue cruise boats, is also on the route of daily boats. Here you can take a break and swim in the crystal clear sea.
