Bitez Beach & Bay is approximately 6km from Bodrum, and has a cresent shaped cove with a long sandy beach.

This resort area is one of the Bodrum Peninsula’s maturer tourist resorts, and has had time to get past it’s development phase.  The area is well maintained,  with lots of olive and citrus groves. These groves seperate Bitez Bay from Bitez Village, and provide a tranquil route for strolling between the two.

Bitez Beach and bay is known as an ideal location for water sports, because of it’s calm and shallow waters. It attracts beginner windsurfers in the morning, and in popular with intermediate and advanced windsurfers in the afternoon when the off-shore winds pick up.

History

  • Amid the Citrus Groves between the Beach and the Village, is the adandoned ruins of an old Greek Church. Although it’s closed to visitors, and in dire need of renovation, it has beautiful dolphin mosiac floors that are worth a visit.
