From the beach looking north, you have beautiful views of green mountains that cradle the village and bay of Akbuk.
Retire To Akbuk
Many people who have come from big cities to visit Akbuk have made decisions to retire here. There are plans for quite a bit of development of the next few years but given the building restriction and preservation order this resort is set to become exclusive to people seeking idyllic holiday homes.
The whole bay along the sea-front (approx 6km), is lined with trees and straight ahead of you; there are fantastic views of Bodrum peninsula. To the right you will find Akbuk’s little harbour, making it an ideal place to walk before, or after your evening meal. The beach is dotted with sandy coves that lend themselves to sunny days of sun-bathing. There are plenty of restaurants nearby, with fantastic views of Bodrum peninsula.
There are some bars and a disco nearby if you feel like a drink or dancing the night away. Shopping for groceries, you will find mini-markets and a popular Friday market, again only a few minutes’ walk away.
Akbuk is approximately a 15/20 minute drive to Altinkum. There is a regular bus service (dolmus) that will take you to Altinkum
Property in Akbuk is good value for money, mainly because Akbuk is still a small resort. Akbuk is still peaceful and unspoiled.
Lovely sandy beaches stretch all round the bay and the views from this large mountain backed bay are spectacular.
Akbuk is situated 10km south of Altinkum.
Akbuk is definitely one to watch for the future! It’s a great place to buy a Property in Turkey.
