Yalıkavak is a town near Bodrum in Muğla province, on the Aegean coast of Turkey. It is 18 kilometres (11 miles) from Bodrum and located at the north eastern tip of the Bodrum peninsula. It has been inhabited since near the end of the second millennium B.C. It is an important tourist resort.
Formerly the Bodrum area’s main sponge fishing port, Yalikavak is considered the most elite village on the Bodrum Peninsula.

It also has many high quality restaurants as well as several magnificent bays. Yalıkavak is surrounded by hills offering tourists views of the town and nearby Mediterranean coastline.
