The resort of Akbuk is centrally located on Turkeys beloved coastline between Bodrum and Kusadasi and has become increasingly popular with European buyers as an ideal location for holidays, investment or retirement living. It is close to Bodrum airport (a 45-minute drive), which in May 2012 opened its doors to the newly constructed terminal which will now handle an annual capacity of 5 million tourists.
Akbuk has good tourist facilities, safe swimming from many beautiful beaches and has historical sites nearby including the Apollo Temple, Miletus and Priene. Akbuk was once a fishing village, considered the most scenic of all the towns in the Didim region. It has residential building restrictions in place to preserve the natural beauty of the area. Akbuk is already an extremely popular holiday destination for European and Turkish holidaymakers alike. In particular, thousands of Turks from the inland towns and cities descend there in the summer months.
Only Turkey can offer so much. Its breath-taking scenery, outstanding historical and archaeological sites and world-class beaches combine with a long, jealously guarded reputation for hospitality to make it a unique experience. Turkey has been described as a huge open-air museum – a storehouse of the history and culture of the many civilizations that have lived there. The extensive historical and archaeological wealth would be sufficient for an entire continent, let alone a single country.
Its shores are lined with beautiful sandy beaches, wide bays, and ports and islands of all sizes. The summers are long: in some places as long as eight months. The country has magnificent mountains and valleys, interspersed with picturesque lakes, rivers and waterfalls – ideal for year-round tourism and sports of all kinds. Avid skiers and mountain climbers, hikers and hunters will enjoy new experiences they will never forget.
