Bodrum – a savvy investment choice

It’s hard not to fall in love with Bodrum. Located on the shores of the Aegean Sea, Bodrum’s historical beauty and many attractive resorts offer a good mix of tradition and modernity.

For investors looking for one of the best zip codes on the Turkish Riviera, Yalikavak is a good place to consider. Yalikavak is now called the “Queen of Bodrum” and Palmarina is famous for its many hotels, bars, shops, and entertainment. Here, you will see rich people with their big boats glistening in the water and their well-dressed workers walking along the harbor. There is an international vibe, with many foreigners living in the area for six months or more. Yalikavak is a place where you will find land, walled houses, and houses with the latest building technology, helipads, and infinity pools. Many presidents, celebrities, and well-known businessmen have personally signed up for seven sums of money for a luxury house in Yalikavak, but rest assured that those with a limited budget are still saving for it. Yalikavak now has a growing number of Turkish property developments suitable for those who want to live without leaving their savings.

If a more traditional place is more your style, Yalikavak’s sleepy neighbor Gumusluk might just be for you. Here, designer clothes are replaced with shorts and bikinis, good food from beach barbecues, and traditional food – the famous coastal area for grilled fish and seafood. Gumusluk is small and relaxed, he is doing something wrong. But, having said that, most of what is sold in Gumusluk is a modern house designed with a simple lifestyle in mind. Beautiful whitewashed villas with sea views and pools typical of Bodrum properties can be found from around.



Gundogan, a growing fishing village, also attracts investors and retirees who want to escape the tourist crowds and live a quiet life. Then there’s the glitz and glamor of Turkbuku, perfect for those who want to live a luxurious life in a big country house.
