Yalikavak Map  



Yalikavak map>>

Yalikavak is situated on the Northwestern face of the peninsula and 18 km to Bodrum.
Yalikavak is certainly the only town in Bodrum that grows in an overwhelming speed and the most famous one in Bodrum.
Legend says that its name is a depiction to many poplar trees it once had. Nowadays it is rather difficult to spot poplar trees in the area, contrary to its namesake. Indeed, its hills are covered by mostly oak forests.
Yalikavak is proud to boost a 29 km shoreline dotted with many teagardens, restaurants, cafes and is the windiest area in the region.
The howls of endless winds almost never cease in Yalikavak. The locals were fisherman and sponge divers until recent past. It should be everyone’s duty to advise people to visit Tilkicik, Agacbasli, Pasha, Dutlu, Alaca bays…

Another symbol of Yalikavak, which must be mentioned along with the windmills, is the Mediterranean Seals, which live in the town’s bays.

The villages surrounding the vista, sprinkled around the hills are just as characteristic of the Aegean settlements as Yalikavak itself and just as inviting. Geris, likened to Tibetan villages by many, Gocabel, Sandima, and Dagbelen villages… It is impossible not to feel as if in a time warp when visiting the village of Geris ( Pasanda ), which has a history dating back to 4500 years.

The deserted Village of Sandima, built on the southern outskirts of the 35 m. high, conical shaped Hill of Partipanaz, which is visible from any point, has a rich history indeed and was used as a sun watch by Yalikavak people. The population of the village is only three. One feels as if walking through a mystical movie set that is carefully set up.
