Bardakçı is an extremely small and cute cove with a sandy beach. The sea somehow extremely cold! It is a special place for people especially looking for cold water to swim or chill. The place has a special mythical story though: The Hermaphroditus, son of Hermes and Afrodite falls in love with the Nymph Salmakis(the bay's name also) here but she doesn't reply his love. So he prays to god to make them together into one body and his wish is accepted. And the hermaphrodite fact in science is born!

In my opinion, Gümüşlük is the best cove of Bodrum if you like diving. You shouldn't expect any sandy beach or sunbath sessions here. This place is like a sunken ancient city, that you can still see the walls of ancient civilizations under the water. There is a small island, very close and barely connected to the shore, which it is a tradition to struggle the whole way along the small rocky path on the sea to reach the island! There are awesome fish restaurants just next to the sea. Great place!

Catamaran is a swimming disco! As it can be understood from its name, it is a giant catamaran, designed for around 1500 people and after the time comes, it gets under way and people are having their disco joy over the seas of Bodrum. Constructing the dance floor by glass is the greatest idea of this floating disco, since you can see the underwater while dancing on it! If you get bored in the middle, there is a free transfer from Catamaran to the marina every 15 minutes after midnight..

Karaincir is the most favorite bay for the local people. But in my opinion this place is a little bit over rated. The water is cold and the sand is not special. Having many great restaurants along side the beach is great though. And if you like underwater hunting, this is a good place to catch octopus. The hills in both sides of the beach prevents the winds and gives you enough heat to take a hellish sunbath! Jumping after such sunbath is a great experience I have to say.
