Bodrum, Turkey, from €356pp for 7 Nights in October

Defined by its deep, turquoise-blue waters, pine-fringed coves and bays, and its white sandy beaches Bodrum is a popular choice for European travellers.


Part of Turkey’s turquoise coast, this breathtakingly beautiful corner of the Mediterranean offers superb value for a memorable holiday. Picturesque white painted buildings facing onto a smart marina, presided by the picture-book medieval castle of St Peter, help give Bodrum its charm. Bodrum Castle, built in 1402, is the town’s number-one tourist destination, and offers peaceful views over the town and the azure Aegean Sea.


Inside is the Museum of Underwater Archaeology, filled with finds from shipwrecks, which is worth a visit too. Some of the best beaches and bays in the peninsula can be accessed only by boat, so consider chartering a dinghy or booking a spot on a gulet (a traditional wooden boat) tour. If you fancy a more laid back afternoon, try a traditional Turkish hammam experience or indulge in a facial and massage for some self-care.
