Turgutreis is the second largest town on the Bodrum Peninsula. It is located 20 kilometers from the center of Bodrum.. The name was given to the city in honor of Turgut Reis, an admiral of the Ottoman Empire, who was born there 500 years ago.. Turgutreis became popular with tourists just recently.
Over the past 10 years, from a fishing village at the narrow dirt road, Turgutreis has become a rapidly growing coastal city. Turgutreis has extensive beaches, a unique street of bars, D-Marin marina, a huge open-air market, giant supermarkets and a covered bazaar; on the hills near the town there are tombs that belong to the period of ancient Greece. Many Europeans choose this district for permanent residence, so everybody will understand your English here. Today Turgutreis is a real tourist center that is able to compete with Bodrum itself.
As the tourist popularity of the city is growing, the attractiveness of real estate here is growing too. Luxurious complexes of villas with panoramic views of the Aegean Sea and the islands are popular with investors from around the world.
