Maca Kizi

August 10, 2012

There are these places – sexy, vibey, relaxed, stylish – that crop up the world over like distant cousins with a family resemblance.  Summer, beachy ones can be found on Capri, the Mexican Riviera, Uruguay’s Atlantic seabord, Brazil’s Bahia.

And also on Turkey’s gorgeous coast in Turkbuku, Maca Kizi is just steps from the port of Bodrum.  What binds them all together?  The fact that in their past they were humble fishing ports? That they attract a young, good-looking crowd who love to stroll, eat, drink and dance? That they have the perfect hotel – a Scalinatella, a Coqui Coqui, an Uxua, a Marismo, a Maca Kazi – is the linchpin, of course.  These are all places that have the self confidence to be simple, unpretentious, informal.  They all have Assouline style, an easy glamor, a sense of fun.
