Holidays in Torba

Torba Introduction

Torba is a delightful resort and, although only a short distance from Bodrum, is quite different in that it’s much smaller, less commercial and has a lovely laid-back feel to it. You can swim in the crystal clear Aegean Sea, enjoy a superb seafood meal overlooking the bay and enjoy a little low-key nightlife in lovely surroundings.

Why Choose Torba?

It’s really the best of both worlds in Torba – the laid back atmosphere and the easygoing way of life but with Bodrum, with its shopping and nightlife, just a short distance away either by taxi or by dolmus. All ages are catered for in Torba and there’s a good choice of hotels and apartments. The scenery is stunning, there are excellent excursions and boat trips, some shops and, best of all, a resort which has one of the prettiest settings on the Bodrum Peninsula.

Best Time to Travel

April to October is the best time to visit Torba although it will be less crowded and less hot if you avoid the peak season. The weather is ideal in May and June with long days and temperatures in the high 70s and low 80s. In September and October, the high season crowds have departed and the sea is really warm.

The Resort

Torba’s location could not be better. It enjoys a fabulous setting between the blue Aegean and the imposing pine-clad hills behind the resort and there’s an attractive seafront with bars and restaurants. Local transport operates on a regular basis to Bodrum and nearby villages and boat trips run every day to little coves and bays dotted around the peninsula. There’s also a small selection of shops and restaurants.

Eating & Drinking

Torba offers a good selection of places to eat and drink from family-run cafes and tavernas to more up-market international eating places for the discerning visitor. There’s something for everyone and there are some really nice bars for an evening drink overlooking the bay.


There’s lots to see in and around Torba and, apart from the numerous boat trips available, including a day trip to the Greek island of Kos (from Bodrum), you can also visit and / or try your hand at various water sports in addition to enjoying a Jeep Safari, a Turkish Bath, a visit to Pamukkale and, of course, a not-to-be-missed trip to Ephesus.

Night Life & Shopping

Visitors don’t come to Torba for the nightlife and shopping although there are a few low-key nightspots in and around the resort together with a sprinkling of small shops. For serious nightlife, Bodrum, with its great club and bar scene, is just a short distance away either by taxi or dolmus whilst shopping in the local markets and bazaars in Bodrum is great fun (and very easy to get to).
