dbo:abstract
  • Turgutreis ist eine kleine Stadt an der Westküste der Halbinsel von Bodrum im Südwesten der Türkei. Die Stadt wurde nach dem größten Sohn der Gegend, Admiral Turgut Reis benannt. Traditionell war der Mandarinen- und Gemüseanbau vorherrschender Wirtschaftszweig. Seit einigen Jahren ist Turgutreis vom Tourismus entdeckt worden. Turgutreis ist dank seines vorherrschenden Nordwestwinds (Poyraz) für Windsurfer und Segler sehr gut geeignet. Der vorgelagerte Archipel aus kleinen, schroff aus dem Meer aufragenden Inseln und Inselchen wie Çatalada gehört zu den schönsten Panoramen der Ägäis. Nahe liegt auch die griechische Insel Kos - in einer Stunde mit einem kleinen Transferschiff, jedoch von Bodrum aus in einer halben Stunde mit einem Tragflächenboot zu erreichen. Am Abendhorizont sind Pserimos, Kalymnos und Leros (Dodekanes) zu sehen. Gulet-Tagestouren kreuzen im Archipel und westlich bis Gümüşlük, dem antiken Myndos, das dem Brutus Asyl bot, östlich bis Akyarlar. Seit 2005 findet unter freiem Himmel ein Klassik-Musik-Festival mit türkischen und internationalen Orchestern und Solisten statt. (de)

Produce from the surrounding villages are collected here for transport. The town is a popular holiday destination with its 5 kilometres of sandy beaches, waterfront restaurants and bars. The market on Saturday also attracts many Holiday goers from surrounding areas and is a very busy and bustling example of middle east with a western touch. The market owners take Euros, British Sterling and the Turkish Lira. Although most items are fake they are still a cheap alternative to the expensive originals. Haggling is a must as most Bazaars in the world.There are mostly hotels and holiday homes peppered along the coast line but there is evidence of more production of homes. The town is named after the Ottoman admiral Turgut Reis who was born there in 1485. Also known as Dragut, Turgut Reis was famous for his expeditions on the coasts of Spain, France, Italy, and North Africa, and for his participation in the Ottoman siege of Malta. Where he died during that battle. A few kilometres outside the town center, in Sabanci Park, a waterfront memorial with his statue marks the place where he first set sail. The coastline consists of several inlets, with steep mountains running parallel to the coast. There are 14 Turkish islands around Turgutreis including Küçük Kiremit, Büyük, Fener, Çatal, Yassı, Tüllüce, Kargı, Köçek, Kadıkalesi, and Sarıat, as well as the Greek islands Kos and Kalimnos. The coast and the sea around the islands is littered with wrecks that are the source of artifacts on display at the Bodrum Museum. The area has a marina which was built several years ago. You can get a ferry to Kos, which is 45 minutes journey and costs €17 return, only valid for one day. (en)
