Akbuk – Turkey

Akbuk the secret treasure of the Aegean Coast of Turkey is fast becoming one of the most sought after tourism destinations. Akbuk retains the feeling of a small traditional fishing village, legendary for its Crystal Clear Turquoise Sea and renowned for its hospitality and friendliness.

Akbuk, located between Bodrum, Altinkum and Didim is a haven for those who enjoy a relaxed and laid back holiday or life style. Set in an idyllic fishing village, with a back drop of natural pine forest mountains, only 20 minutes’ drive from the popular tourist destination of Altinkum and only 45 minutes’ drive from Bodrum airport, Akbuk is the perfect location to purchase a holiday home or investment property.

In 1991, Akbuk separated from Altinkum and Didim to become a “Fevzi Pasa” or township in its own right and has grown steadily ever since. Set in an idyllic fishing village, with a back drop of natural pine forest mountains but with the benefits of activities such as snorkelling in the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea, wind surfing, fishing, horse riding, Jeep safari or just sunbathing on one of Akbuk’s beautiful blue flag sandy beaches, this up and coming resort has something for everyone.

The centre point of Akbuk Bay is the Harbour, with its long pedestrian promenade, where you can take a relaxing walk stopping off for a meal and enjoy the ambience of the traditional Turkish relaxed atmosphere and watch the beautiful sunset across the bay.

There are wide varieties of shops; with a market every Friday located next to the main Akbuk bus station, restaurants and bars within the town itself but those wanting to experience the bustling tourist area of Altinkum will find it is only a short 20 minutes’ drive away. Steeped in history, the Apollo Temple and the Roman city of Ephesus are within easy reach, you will also find the breath-taking Baffa Lake within the locality of this up and coming resort.

Once a small fishing village, Akbuk remains decidedly traditional in feel and is largely unspoilt by tourism. It is now rapidly becoming a popular tourist resort with visitor figures rising year on year meaning great future rental prospects

For those who are health conscious Akbuk is also reported to have the highest oxygen ratio and the lowest humidity in Turkey making the climate pleasant with a refreshing breeze even during the long hot summer months!
