Welcome to Bozburun on the Bozburun Peninsula, Turkey. This community guide helps holiday guests find suitable accommodation or a Blue Cruise when exploring Bozburun and the fabulous Bozburun Peninsula.
Around Bozburun you can find a wealth of holiday accommodation to meet all requirements, from simple Pansiyons (bed and breakfast houses) to apartments, hotels, to luxury villas in Turkey with ecological chlorine-free private pools. Its your decision. Watch the Video.
Bozburun now has its own Harbour Customs Post to provide Customs clearance for Gulet Cruises that sail to Simi, Rhodes and the other Greek islands close by. This makes Bozburun the gateway to Greece as gulet cruises save at least one day sailing from Bozburun, compared to Marmaris, Datca or Bodrum.
This is a big boost to Bozburun tourism as Gulet Cruises or Blue Cruises will now enter and leave Turkey via Bozburun. Gulet cruises starting in Selimiye and Orhaniye heading to the Greek islands can now directly clear Customs at Bozburun, avoiding the long detour to Datca Customs down the Datca peninsula.
The nearest airport to our luxurious villas near Bozburun is Dalaman (DLM), which is about 2.5 hours transfer away by car. Next nearest is Bodrum, which is about a further 30 minutes away by car. The nearest large city to Bozburun is bustling Marmaris.
Bozburun, by contrast is a lovely relaxed town that makes its living mostly from the sea in terms of fishing and yacht/gulet charters. Most people arrive in Bozburun by yacht or gulet. This should not be surprising as Bozburun is also world-famous for the construction of wooden Turkish gulets, built entirely using centuries-old traditions.
Bozburun is an excellent place to retreat from the pressures of modern life. We hope to see you soon in beautiful Bozburun, staying in our luxury stone villas.
This has been one of the best holidays that we have ever had. The villa is superb and it has been lovely having the occasional Turkish tea with Rafet, who has kept the pool immaculate.

Welcome to Bozburun, a corner of paradise with its matchless natural beauty, situated where the Aegean and the Mediterranean seas meet. With a population of just 2400, our quiet town is blessed with beautiful bays and coves, with the heritage of ancient civilizations. Bozburun is world famous for the construction of traditional wooden two masted, light rigged schooners – called Gulets. During the summer season Bozburun attracts many guests so you will find plenty of yachts and Gulets in our harbour. Many of our guests become captivated by Bozburun's beauty and return year after year, staying in luxury villas for rent.
Bozburun has a mild climate, so is warm all year around, producing a clean environment with abundant oxygen. Our peaceful environment means our guests leave us renewed, refreshed and happy after a stay in Bozburun. When staying in Bozburun, there are clean and comfortable pensions with reasonable prices, hotels, motels and boutique hotels that meet different holiday accommodation requirements. For eating, we have a number of restaurants that serve delicious and healthy sea food along with the favourite dishes from Turkish cuisine, with markets and weekly open market for self catering guests.
Around the town and harbour's edge you will find our coffee and tea houses offering a chance to refresh yourself and admire Bozburun, with souvenir shops for memories of your stay in Turkey.
For the best experience of Bozburun, I recommend swimming in our pristine waters around the bays and taking beautiful photos home of our breathtaking views. Bozburun literally means “bare point” in Turkish but if you take the effort to come and visit us, there’s no chance that you will find it bare or regret it.
What an amazing place and what a wonderful week! The villa was just awesome and was a great base to explore an unspoilt, quiet part of Turkey. We were able to walk straight from the villa into stunning hills with their green forests and the Mediterranean is only ten minutes away in the other direction.
