From most of the towns and villages on the peninsula, you can get to Turgutreis easily and with convenient frequency. Situated 20 km from Bodrum, Turgutreis is the second largest town on the peninsula. It’s the main commercial center in the western part of the peninsula, and is perhaps best known for two features – it’s stunning Sunsets and the copious shopping opportunities.
