The Aegean Coast region
The stunning new 4 star complex of Apollonium Spa & Beach Resort is set in a superb location in a pleasant natural environment on the sea front and surrounded by forests of pine and olive trees. This area of Turkey boasts an average of three hundred sunny days per year where temperatures in the peak season can reach into the forties Celsius, made tolerable by the calming gentle breeze from the sea and surrounding hills. It's ideal for the sun, sea and sand worshippers.
This area is ideal for culture seekers, possessing some of the most spectacular and significant of Turkeys' archaeological sites with a rich cultural legacy from early Greek, Roman and Ottoman civilisations. The World Heritage site of Ephesus (where St. Paul was said to preach), containing numerous temples, a restored library and a huge amphitheatre, together with the nearby House of the Virgin Mary are only about an hours drive away.
Close to Ephesus is the coastal town of kusadasi with it’s deep sea harbour accommodating up to seven hundred cruise ships per year. The Temple of Apollo in Didim, the large amphitheatre at Miletus and Lake Bafa with its large breeding area for Flamingo’s and other wild birds are closer to the complex. Further afield are the stunning white limestone cliffs and hot springs at Pamukkale which can easily be visited in a day trip.
Altinkum (meaning ‘Golden Sands’) and its older attached sister Didim, is a busier, larger town and is only forty minutes by car or, in the summer months, take the water taxi directly from Apollonium's own private jetty. There you’ll find a vast sandy beach, lots of bars, restaurants, shops, hotels and nightclubs. ‘Sea-cat’ like ferries offer day trips to the nearby Greek islands of Kos and Samos during the summer months with journey times approximately one hour each way.
For the shoppers, a trip to Bodrum with its numerous boutiques, shops, yacht harbour, castle and museum is only an hours’ drive away or closer still is the Outlet Shopping Mall at Söke.
Akbuk (meaning 'white bay') is the nearest town some eleven kms ( fifteen minutes) away by car (a public bus service also runs to/from the complex), boasting a number of restaurants serving both Turkish and international cuisine plus a number of bars - most with entertainment - and a nightclub/disco. It also houses a number of supermarkets, a small post office, pharmacy, butcher, baker, petrol station and ATM's (where you can draw Turkish Lira, Euros and Pound Sterling cash), plus several gift shops and stalls.
There is a weekly market every Friday where you can find everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to local home-made cheeses, honey, olive oil, spices, fish, clothes, shoes and lots more for you to practice your bartering skills !! And If you men have never experienced a Turkish haircut and shave you must frequent one of the local barber shops where they also trim your eyebrows, nostrils and ears!
In the summer months, Akbuk harbour is host to many tour boats offering day trips to the surrounding bays and islands. There are also diving boats from here and nearby Bodrum plus opportunities for the keen angler to take a fishing expedition anywhere along the coastline that will net you Sea Bream and Sea Bass etc.
