"LADIES and gentlemen, welcome back to St.-Tropez!" Turkbuku by Olya777

Turkbuku Travel Guide: 8 reviews and 22 photos

A hidden treasure on the Aegean Sea, Turkbuku, is possibly the next St.-Tropez for the jet set. In Turkbuku, a tiny village on the north side of the Bodrum Peninsula, women in gold bikinis tan on sun beds to get ready to party all night.

Turkbuku doesn’t have sand beaches, so the beach clubs have wood piers extending over the water, with sun beds, tents and bars.

As the stars glimmered overheard and illuminated white yachts drifted in the distance, waiters in white shirts bearing the words “Saint-Tropez” threaded among the Philippe Starck chairs and dancing V.I.P.’s, extending cocktails into outstretched arms adorned with designer watches and impeccable tans. Working the other side of the room, a roving photographer popped off a succession of flashbulb bursts as he captured mugging corporate tycoons and fashion models...

this is Turkbuku...

Not much English is spoken in Turkbuku and menus are usually in Turkish but the quality of food and service is very good as they depend on repeat customers.

After you spend a week in Turkbuku, you would feel like you have jet lag as the day begins around 1pm and end around 6am.
There aren’t that many hotels in Turkbuku as the main crowd from Istanbul either have summer villas there or come with their yachts (ideally both)
