The resort of Akbuk is centrally located on Turkey’s Aegean 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 the doors of its newly constructed terminal with an annual capacity of 5 million tourists.
Akbuk has good tourist facilities with safe swimming from many beautiful beaches. It also has historical sites nearby, including the Apollo Temple, Miletus and Priene to name but a few.
Akbuk was once a fishing village and was 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. It 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.
