Bitez is unique in the Bodrum region for being one of the few areas that doesn’t have a powder fine white sand, but instead a coarse sand beach, although it is meticulously clean, having been awarded a blue flag. But don’t let this put you off because Bitez has a popular and successful windsurfing and sailing school and also plays host in October to the annual Bodrum cup, a sailing regatta that draws yachts from all over the Bodrum peninsula to compete. The yachts create a beautiful setting of the clear blue sky and dozens of fluttering white sails through the day, complemented further by the sparkling blue sea.
The waters of Bitez are shallower than most and offer the perfect setting for beginners to feel confident trying out some of the more daring water activities as well as to give unconfident swimmers a relaxed environment to enjoy the sea. And although there are many places to enjoy the activities in the water, Bitez also has some private sheltered coves in order to retain the peace and quiet that so many come to find.
But October isn’t the only time worth visiting Bitez, because it is eternally beautiful with lush greenery covering the area and horse riding trails that wind around the fragrant tangerine orchards. Bitez is a short drive to the Bodrum resort allowing guests the ease of access to multiple sites of historic importance as well as some of the best shopping in Turkey.
Bitez offers fantastic views of the sea, with the Greek Island of Kos also visible. Due to a low amount of tourist development the true Turkish essence of Bitez is still present in its whitewashed shops and houses and even though many popular activities are available, as well as locality to larger Bodrum resorts, Bitez stays essentially a small slice of perfection.
