Aspat Cove,Bodrum

BODRUM ASPAT BAY
Once you get over the hill next to Bagla you are in Aspat. The famous local traditional song of Cokertme tells of this region.

Those who come with their yachts love this region as it is closed to the north west winds. It has fresh drinking water available for those who come themselves or by Yachts.

On the hill, although partly in ruins, the Castle of Aspat ‘Çifit’ stands in its full grandeur. During the reign of Mausolus the ancient city of Termera was built in here.

The cove for many years was a shelter for pirates. The castle was built as a monitoring point. The old stone building on the shore is believed to have been constructed by an Arab official from the island of Crete.
