The Turkish Aegean Coast region

The Turquoise coast is a stunning region of Turkey boasting beautiful beaches and numerous resorts. Some are very busy, others, like Akyaka, are more charming and traditional. The area contains many sites of historical importance and largely remains very Turkish.


Akyaka is a traditional turkish holiday resort, Completely unspoilt, with only recent interest from the more discerning holiday maker.

The village is famous throughout Turkey, not only for its natural beauty, but for its special architecture. The famous architect Nail Cakirhan won the 'Aga Han' award in 1986 to honour his special type of carved wooden houses. The village is strictly monitored to ensure it maintains its picture post card image , and the conservation areas are preserved.

The air in Akyaka is reported to be beneficial to those with health problems...which makes it extremely popular with Turkish holiday makers. The gulf of Gokova (Heavens plain) is also known for its cooling breezes in the hot summer months.Whilst normally serene and refreshingly calm out of season, during the months of July and August , the village develops a life of its own...resulting in a lively, but still relaxed, fun filled atmosphere...

Students from Mugla University descend to play guitars on the beach and BBQ in the forest.

Occasional turkish singing / dancing breaks out in the restaurants, where all are welcome (and encouraged) to participate!Akyaka is one of the most beautiful villages you can see on the Turquoise Coast.
