Bodrum has gained the reputation as the centre of the Turkish art community with its lively, friendly and Bohemian atmosphere and many small galleries. This community has encouraged an informal day-time life style and a night-time of excitement.

The waters offer up multicoloured sponges of all shapes and sizes, octopi and an immense variety of other aquatic life.
