Summer Local: Bodrum, Turkey

There are few things as fabulous as a stunning Mediterranean beach town in the height of summer. Bodrum, Turkey ticks off all the boxes as one of the most laid back but marvelous summer destinations that the Aegean seas have to offer. Move over Mykonos, there is a new neighbor in town!

Beach view of Kempinski Barbados Bay

Originally a sailing hub, Bodrum has evolved to cater to the traveling elite. With fabulous luxury chains such as Kempinski Barbados Bay to smaller boutique establishments like Macakizi there are a range of opulent accommodations to call your home away from home.

When in the mood for an alfresco dining experience Mimoza Restaurant is the spot to be. Located in the quaint fishing village of Gumusluk this beach front property is chic without being too pretentious. The fresh catch is generally the way to go, or better yet strike up a conversation with the owner and have him send over his favorite dishes. Trust me, it’s the prime spot to live and eat like a local!
