Brits are flocking to this coastal city crowned the ‘new Ibiza’ (Picture: Getty Images)

As British holidaymakers struggle to afford party capitals Magaluf, Amsterdam and Ibiza, a Turkish coastal city is experiencing something of a Renaissance amongst British tourists.

Along with its wild nightlife, Bodrum in Turkey also boasts much cheaper pints, food and hotels than Ibiza in Spain.

A pint here will cost you just £2.24 compared to £4.24 in Ibiza, according to PintPrice, whilst a 4-star hotel will set you back just £59 per night. In Ibiza, it’s over twice as expensive at £140 per night for the same quality.

It’s also just £11.77 for a three-course meal for two, whereas the same meal in Ibiza could set you back an eye-watering £68.24 in Ibiza, according to Hiker’s Bay.

Things to do in Bodrum

One thing’s for sure: Bodrum knows how to throw a party, and a cheap one at that.

The city is well-known for its nightlife, with many beach bars and clubs that host top DJs. Rivalling Ibiza with huge dance floors and floor-filling tracks, popular picks include Club Catamaran, Xuma, Halikarnas, and Club Posh.

If that’s not your scene and you prefer a gentler pace, you can venture down Bodrum’s narrow streets where you’ll find cosy, taverns, quiet pubs and even trendy cocktail bars. There are also restaurants, casinos and live music venues.

For history fans, there are tours of Bodrum Castle and the ancient Bodrum Amphitheatre, or you can explore the mausoleum at Halicarnassus which dates back to 350 BC.

If you love shopping, check out the bustling Bodrum Bazaar, which stocks homeware, spices, jewellery and clothes.

There are also beautiful beaches such as Camel Beach, whilst a swim at the dazzling Bardecki Cove is a must-do.

How to get to Bodrum

The quickest way to get there is to fly.

If you’re coming from the Big Smoke, there are flights from London Luton and Stansted that take just over 4 hours.#

However, if you’re seeking the hottest temperatures visit in the summer months June, July and August when it reaches around 35C.
