About the town

This is a page about town Turgutreis, but since this town is not listed on VT I will put it under Borum page, as it is only 18km away.

The district,which comes under the City of Mugla and Bodrum Town,is in an area of 55000 Hectare and is situated where the Mediterranean Sea meets the Agean Sea.The natural structure consist of several inlets,giving the coast line a lace like appearance,with steep mountains parallel along the coast such Doru,Boz,Pamuklu,Çatal,Çukur and the Asar mountains.The average heigth of these mountains is 300 m and there are river beds and rich valleys between them.
There are 14 Turkish islands around Turgutreis including Küçük Kiremit,Büyük Kiremit, Fener, Çatal, Yassý,Tüllüce,Kargý,Köçek,Sarýat as well as the Greek islands Kos and Kalimnos.The peninsula is covered in forests and there is much natural vegetation outside of the forest.There is a delta as the result of rich earth brought by the Akar Stream in early ages,where the locals grow figs and mandarins as the main livelihood.

    Very interesting page! I must visit Turkey one day! You may want to update your tip about money, since there is a new, stronger Lira now. And I think you wanted to write most European tourists "DON'T need visas".

    Delightful page, very informative with nice photos. Sorry to read about the staring men; you are an attractive woman, and the guys are probably looking you over wherever you go. They're just more suave and discreet than the Turks!
