About this location
The Turkish Aegean Coast region
The holiday town of Akyaka is set in southwest Turkey at the end of the Gulf of Gökova. This little known holiday destination sits at the base of the Sakar Mountain and stretches to the Gökova Plain.
The holiday season spans April through October and the region averages 200 - 250 days of sunshine per year. This area of Turkey has the perfect climate for holiday makers: water temperatures range from 15 - 26 degrees and in the height of summer an onshore breeze makes the hottest of days very comfortable.
This region of Turkey is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Ecologically the local area offers a diverse range of flora and fauna. Architecturally the town is unique and all houses are crafted from local resources in the style of the architect Nail Çakırhan. Culturally the sleepy characteristics of this village are preserved: there are no nightclubs and loud music late at night is forbidden. Historically Akyaka has areas of interest, boasting antique remains, roman tombs and a medieval castle. Nearby Gökova has ancient Lycian rock tombs.carved by hand into the mountain.
Akyaka is served by Dalaman Airport, 67km away. To see traditional Turkey the region's capital of Mugla is a 25km drive. Marmaris, 30 km away, sits on a marvelous bay at the edge of a hilly peninsula and offers a harbourside promenade and a raging nightlife. All are accessible by public transport and car.
The province of Mugla has lots to offer. The ancient city of Ephesus, the best preserved city in the Mediterranean, can be visited within the day. Also a day trip away are the travertine pools of Pamukkale and Hieropolis ruins and the ruined city of Aphrodisias. Köyceğiz is a peaceful lakeside village set within a nature reserve and boat trips can be taken from here to Dalyan, to Sultaniye hot springs and mudbaths and to the ruined city of Kaunos. The journey to Dalyan takes about an hour: the town is set on the banks of a river and is backed by a cliff face with Lycian tombs. Iztuzu beach, famed for its sandy beaches and loggerhead turtles is easily accessed from Dalyan.
Akyaka is an unspoiled village sitting on the edge of the River Azmak and Gokova Plain is best described by its view from the Sakar Pass descending from Mugla. The view is breathtaking and embraces untouched pine forests, secret coves and bays along the turquoise coastline and the government protected Eucalyptus Alley running from the Gökova crossroads to the neighbouring village of Akçapinar. Akyaka rests sleepily between turquoise waters and a stunning mountain backdrop and is a tranquil location far from the crowds of nearby resorts.
Akyaka is a region ouf outstanding natural beauty. The Azmak River flows on the lower boundry of this unspoiled village: the crystal clear waters are a natural aquariuım and flow quickly from its spring source through trees and reed beds towards the Gulf of Gökova. The beauty of the river can be enjoyed by a walk against its banks or by boat. Take pleasure in the beauty of the river's colourful pebble basin and the wildlife that is abundant: fish, tortoises, ducks, kingfishers and the protected fish otters that bring this idyllic ecosystem to life.
Fish restaurants line the banks of the River Azmak. In the morning choose a traditional Turkish breakfast and watch dragonflies dance across the water or in the evening sample locally produced organic vegetable “meze” starters and delicious fish courses. These well known restaurants offer a truly cosmopolitan cuisine to the most discerning of travellers.
Numerous cafés and restaurants line the beach. Akyaka beach is sandy and the coastline is shallow making this location perfect for everyone. The nearby Çinar beach (3km to the west of Akyaka) offers a pebble coastline and deeper waters.
Akyaka has a unique architectural style influenced by Nail Çakırhan. Since 1968 the houses of Akyaka have made the most of natural resources and hand crafted timber and have combined traditional features of Ula houses with modern architecture. Intricate woodwork design and balconies over-flowing with bougainvillea are characteristic of this village and enhance its charm and beauty.
Akyaka is a village unspoilt by development and is a holiday destination secret. Akyaka has a variety of restaurants, bars and cafés. Whilst good food and live music is abundant the calm of Akyaka is protected by its local population: there are no nightclubs and loud music late at night is forbidden.
Akyaka is a magical place where memories are made. Simply put a week is not enough ......

"Simply a beautiful place to holiday"
We chose to stay in Akyaka primarily because of the proximity to the kitesurf beach at Gokova. We had no idea how stunning Akyaka itself would turn out to be. The village is very Turkish and very frie… More
