Akbuk is located in centre of Turkey’s favourite coast next to the clear waters of the Aegean Sea. The town, which is between Bodrum and Didim, is the perfect holiday location set in a beautiful natural environment by the sea. Akbuk is a much loved region by both foreign and local tourists. It is purported to have the highest oxygen ratio and the lowest humidity in Turkey. The climate in Akbuk is warm and the gentle 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. Akbuk offers blue flag beaches, shops, restaurants and bars. Akbuk is within easy driving distance of a number of stunning sights including Bafa Lake and the Apollo Temple. It has easy access to Altinkum and many other cultural and social activities, whether it is enjoying the local cuisine or enjoying a sense of history by visiting the ruined Roman city of Ephesus, there is plenty to do for everyone!
Akbuk is surrounded by green forests and lovely beaches. The ground is fairly level, making it perfect for building, and it has a building restriction that states only bungalows or two storey properties can be constructed. This means that the area will have a wealth of large detached villas with large gardens and therefore be very upmarket and command high prices. The low 15% building permission is restricted to help prevent the area looking built up. The government has imposed restrictions to ensure that 85% of the land in Akbuk remains as green area.
Akbuk set at the foot of gently sloping mountains and extending around a beautiful turquoise blue bay is fast becoming a hot spot for British buyers. For lovers of peace and tranquillity coupled with breathtaking views this is definitely the place to be. Although not a thriving tourist resort, Akbuk offers a charm and a feel of real Turkish living.
