Akyaka Holidays – Undiscovered gem in South-Western Turkey
If you are looking to take a break from the stressful city life in a peaceful and authentic rural environment then the village of Akyaka is the right place for you. This gorgeous little village lies beneath the mountain of Sakartepe and borders on the Gulf of Gokova on the other side. The mountain provides a cooler hideaway on a hot sunny day whilst on the beach you can enjoy the calm, warm breeze from the sea. Although getting discovered by the ‘city’ people from Ankara, Istanbul and other large Turkish cities, and these being joined by quite a few European visitors, the village has to date not undergone any major development, therefore is set to preserve its wonderful rustic charm.
Last Minute Holidays in Akyaka – One of the prettiest villages on Turkish Turquoise Coast
You can visit Akyaka on a shorter trip if you are staying anywhere in the Gulf of Gokova or why not book nice week’s Akyaka holidays and stay in one of the authentic family-run pensions which has preserved its authentic Ottoman architecture (apparently the first settlement in this village dates back to 1500!). On your Akyaka holidays you can spend a day on the quiet beach with crystal clear turquoise blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea, enjoy the watersports, snorkelling or simply soak up the sun. Alternatively, the riverside with its numerous precious species of flora and fauna is a true birdwatcher’s heaven on Akyaka holidays. The village market will welcome you with its typical Turkish atmosphere – lots of stalls filled with leather goods, hand-made souvenirs, herbs, spices, pastry and jewellery and the clever Turkish salesmen with whom you can haggle to get bargains galore!
