The Villa Bodrum Location & Links
Yalikavak lies at the north-west corner of the Bodrum Peninsula, 17 km from Bodrum and used to be a fishing and sponge divers village. The permanent inhabitants of Yalikavak number around 6, 800 people. This fertile coastal region is ideal for sailing and all water sports and attracts many foreign yachts to the harbour that once sheltered mainly fishing boats.Yalikavak is renown for superb sunsets and its unspoilt shoreline and sparkling clean sea is one of the few remaining abodes of the endangered mediterranean monk seals and therefore a protected area. In 2002 Yalikavak Bay was awarded the "Blue Flag" for its clean waters.
Yalikavak impresses with its combination of alluring traditional charm and a sense of recognition of the importance of contemporary comforts desired by today's discerning visitor. This is what makes Yalikavak attractive to those who care for both, the old and the new
Yalikavak does not only mean tranquility. There is a reason for so many windmills being constructed here. This detail definitely has lots of meanings for windsurfing fans. Mountaineers and trekking fans will also find lots of challenges. While taking a walk among tangerine, olive and laurel trees, you can pick up some herbs like sage, thyme and mint.
