The sea and village harbour is just a very short walk away from the villa. Akbuk, originally a small fishing village, remains an undiscovered gem on the Aegean coastline, it lies between the resorts of Bodrum and Kusadasi and is a 20 mins car drive from Altinkum.
Akbuk is very tranquil and offers beautiful scenery with a delightful bay, surrounded by green mountains. There are surrounding pine forests and numerous olive groves in the locality. The Sitesi is situated in the heart of the local community.
The bay's sea front is lined with trees and offers wonderful views of the Bodrum peninsular. The sunset over the bay is spectacular viewing.
The bay area around Akbuk is approx 8 km long. It offers a number of quiet beach areas and parks, 20
or so restaurants along the seafront, a small harbour, an area with various shops and a
large outdoor market held every Friday. The market sells fresh dairy produce, fish, confectionery, fruit and vegetables. Many other items are for sale such as clothing and plants.
Akbuk is very peaceful and is an excellent place to get away from the hustle and bustle
of everyday life. It offers many areas which you can explore either by foot, bicycle or car.
Sun, turquoise-blue sea, unspoilt bays, coves, mountains and lakes provide you with a wonderful environment for a relaxing holiday. From April to October the Aegean coastline provides an ideal climate offering perfect conditions where you can relax on the sandy beaches, visit remarkably well preserved historical sites or enjoy the peace of untouched landscapes. You will also experience the natural warmth, friendliness and traditional hospitality offered by the Turkish people in Akbuk.
The small villages of Yesilkent, Kazikli, Bozbuk and Dezinkoy are close by and are relatively small in
size. They definitely are worth exploring. The lagoon area at Yesilkent is rich with wildlife such as lizards, pelicans and flamingos.
Akbuk is not a commercialised resort. However, Altinkum is just a 25 minute small bus (dolmus) ride away (a transportation experience not to be missed). Car hire is readily available too. Altinkum has a town area and a sandy beach with typical seaside resort facilities.
Akbuk is a residential town with no high rise hotels, in July & August the town is populated with Turkish holiday makers, most of whom own second houses in the area. It is a great place "to get away from it all" and just relax on holiday.
