I love getting lost in the beautiful bays hidden around every corner. It gives me great pleasure to watch the sunset, while trying to follow the traces left by strangers on the warm, fire sand.
For me instant castles made of sand and footprints on the beach are what best reflect the pulse and energy of Bodrum.
