How Far is It to Bodrum?

You come to Bodrum to relax, have fun, and enjoy the one-of-a-kind Aegean atmosphere, leaving home thousands of kilometres behind. Would it not be amazing if you could double, even triple the experience by just travelling a couple of kilometres more?

The Aegean coast of Turkiye is also known as Turkish Riviera. For thousands of years, various civilizations rose and fell on these lands, leaving us a deep-rooted history. If you are already in Bodrum, it also means that you are close to other jaw-dropping destinations around.

Knowing how far another interesting location to Bodrum is helps a lot when making your travel plans. In this article, you will find the distances between various domestic destinations and Bodrum, starting with the towns and villages within the Bodrum Peninsula.

Distances within the Bodrum Peninsula

If it is your first time, having so many places to go in the Bodrum Peninsula may seem confusing. You may rest assured that there is nothing to worry about. It is a small peninsula and the short distances between different towns and villages make it convenient to visit as many places as you wish.

Have you seen the Bodrum Map which I prepared for you? Using the map and the below distance chart together, you can decide where to go next. It is free to download and distribute as long as you give credit to The Best of Bodrum.

The below table shows distances between Bodrum town centre and other towns and villages in the peninsula. There are also average travelling times from given locations to Bodrum based on Google Maps’ estimations.

The travel times may change drastically based on the season. The data in the table were taken in July when trips take longer than usual due to traffic conditions. For example, a minibus ride from Ortakent to Bodrum usually takes around 15 minutes in winters. However, according to the July data, it takes twice as much.

Distances of Other Destinations to Bodrum

Travelling within the Bodrum Peninsula is easy by using the public transport. However, if you want to explore further, making some travel arrangements may be necessary.

Would you like to visit Ephesus or The Virgin Mary’s House? Driving from Selcuk to Bodrum takes around two hours. You can visit them both and you may still have enough time for wine tasting in Sirince, which is close by and one of the most beautiful mountain villages in Turkiye.

What about a day trip to the Apollo Temple in Didyma? On your way back, you can take a glimpse at the history by visiting the ancient cities of Piriene and Miletos, before the open buffet dinner at your hotel back in Bodrum.

Have you ever considered how would it feel to soak in the mystic water terraces of Pamukkale? It is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which is 3 and a half hours away from Bodrum. Just check the official website of the Hierapolis Archaeological Site before leaving.

As you can see, the unique location of the Bodrum Peninsula on the south-western coast of Turkiye offers quite exciting opportunities to visit many other world renown interesting places.

If your schedule is tight, I would recommend renting a car to save time. But you can still take a bus from Bodrum Bus Terminal or sign up for a daily tour. Please note that the daily tours are usually available only in the peak season.

Distances From International Locations to Bodrum

Months after I first published this article, I was on one of my virtual travels through Google Earth. I found the ruler tool from the menu and started to measure air distances to Bodrum from some of the cities in the world for no other reason than curiosity. In the end, I came up with the table below.

I don’t see any practical use for you, but since I did it anyway, why not share?
