The Akbuk area
The traditional Turkish fishing village of Akbuk is quite small, and definitely unspoilt. It is centred at the heart of Turkey's understandably favoured coastline of the South West Aegean and the sea is crystal clear and quite shallow (quite safe for young children). It is nestled at the foot of lush gently sloping mountains which are defined by stately fir trees. Akbuk extends around the picturesque turquoise bay, where the views have to be seen to be believed. This 360 degree panoramic view can be best appreciated from our spacious second floor balconies. Akbuk is known for the views and mountain walks and its very high oxygen levels and low on pollution. They say that the medical experts send people to this area for these reasons. Unlike Altinkum-Didim, with their high rise apartment blocks, Akbuk has height restrictions so private apartments are only allowed to be built up to 2.5 storeys high and the land in Akbuk can only be built on to a maximum of 15%. Akbuk is primarily a resort frequented by local Turkish tourists, with a variety of good quality, modern and traditional restaurants which offer good value for money in relaxed atmospheres without the hustle and bustle of livelier resorts. Some of the seafood restaurants put the days fresh catch from Akbuk harbour on display for you to choose from and many of the restaurants have marvellous uninterrupted sea views. The resort is very popular with Turkish holiday makers during the high season giving it a real Turkish vibrancy. Outside of the peak summer months of July and August Akbuk is more tranquil when relaxation is the order of the day. There is a weekly market every Friday just a short stroll from the apartment where one can find anything from cheap fruit, vegetables, fish to spices and jewellery! The busier resort of Altinkum is 15-20 min. ride away by local Dolmus (small bus) with its many bars and shops. Due to Akbuk's close proximity to Altinkum-Didim it has been discovered by some British tourists but not by the masses. Therefore no kiss-me-quick hats/karaoke atmosphere and jam-packed beaches! There are a wide variety of activities available around Akbuk which include walking, cycling and jeep safari. Trips including the water park, Bodrum, Kusadasi, Apollo temple in nearby Didim, Bafa lake, scuba diving, and a large number of boat trips both from Akbuk (250 mtrs from apartment) over to the Greek Island of Kos. Alternatively one can catch a dolmus (small bus) to Altinkum for those who do not wish to drive and take an organised boat trip to the nearby Greek islands. From Altinkum there are a number of organised trips to places of historical and natural interest, as mentioned above, as well as to Kusadasi and Bodrum, which can be booked locally and you can be picked up from the apartment or explore yourself by the local dolmus which is extremely cheap.
