Akbuk is located in the centre of Turkey's favourite coast. The town which is between Bodrum and Didim (Altinkum), is a perfect holiday location set in a beautiful natural environment by the sea.
Akbuk is covered with protected forests and olive trees. The region has many small clean beaches and bays. Akbuk is a much loved region by foreign and local tourists, it is purported to have the highest oxygen ratio and the lowest humudity of Turkey, and is rich in nature and sea.
The climate here is warm, but being in the bay a gently breeze is refreshing to cool you down especially in the peak summer months. In contrast to Altinkum Akbuk is largely untouched and unspoilt by the tourist industry. I am sure you will agree is is a little piece of heaven.
Akbuk is 70 Km from Bodrum (Milas) airport, 65 Km from Kusadası and just 18 Km from the resort of Didim/Altınkum.
