Welcome to Bitez


In summer, Siesta Daily Boat Cruises offers day trips from the beach departing at 10am and returning around 6pm.

For some cultural edification, visit the ruins of Pedasa, signposted just before the turnoff to Bitez village on the D330 linking Bodrum with Turgutreis. A relic of the lost Lelegian civilisation that predated the Carians, this small site features defensive wall foundations and a number of chamber graves.
