Although it’s some way to Mazi, it’s well worth the 45-minute journey from Bodrum to get there. 

On the road from Bodrum centre to the airport, immediately after Güvercinlik, look for the sign and turn right towards Mumcular.  As you begin to get off the beaten track, tourism gives way to village life.  For much of the 30km to Mazı, the road winds through the pine forest, there are glimpses of a spectacular sea view and you’ll likely come across village children running to greet passing vehicles and untethered farm animals grazing by the roadside.

The newly-built jetty is a hive of activity with boats and jeep safari tours coming and going.  Mazi opens up a whole new world of flavours, with freshly-caught fish and seafood cooked using traditional techniques, and mezes prepared with the finest local olive oil and home-grown vegetables and salad.

In the mornings, fishermen return to the beach after the night’s fishing and around 10am you can choose from sokkan (sea bream), orfoz and lağoz (grouper), barbun (red mullet), çipura (gilt-head bream), levrek (sea bass), kefal (grey mullet), mezgit (whiting), akya (leer fish) - and anything else hauled up in the nets. 

Mazi Restaurant
The village of Mazı on Gökova shores was built on higher grounds so as to not to be seen by pirates and thus avoid their attacks. The main income of the village comes from carpet making. In every house you can see a workbench at which sits a girl rapidly and enthusiastically weaving the Milas style carpets in colours of yellow, cream and brown. If you want to buy carpets you are in the right place. You can buy your carpets for reasonable prices first hand or give orders for a carpet to be made in the size you want. For those that have an interested in carpet making, we advise them to watch the wool used in the carpet being dyed using herbal roots in a boiling cauldron if you come across it.
