Location & area
The Turquoise Coast/Lycia region
Akyaka is a traditional turkish holiday resort, Completely unspoilt, with only recent interest from the more discerning holiday maker.
The village is famous throughout Turkey, not only for its natural beauty, but for its special architecture. The famous architect Nail Cakirhan won the 'Aga Han' award in 1986 to honour his special type of carved wooden houses. The village is strictly monitored to ensure it maintains its picture post card image , and the conservation areas are preserved.
The air in Akyaka is reported to be beneficial to those with health problems...which makes it extremely popular with Turkish holiday makers. The gulf of Gokova (Heavens plain) is also known for its cooling breezes in the hot summer months.Whilst normally serene and refreshingly calm out of season, during the months of July and August , the village develops a life of its own...resulting in a lively, but still relaxed, fun filled atmosphere...
Students from Mugla University descend to play guitars on the beach and BBQ in the forest.
Occasional turkish singing / dancing breaks out in the restaurants, where all are welcome (and encouraged) to participate!Akyaka is one of the most beautiful villages you can see on the Turquoise Coast. It 's delightful position at the gulf of the conservation area of the Gokova plains is bordered by the magnificent Sakartepe mountains.
Akyaka has a wide sandy beach, safe for children with umbrellas and sunbeds . This beach offers some lovely Bars and Restaurants, catering for all tastes. It is a fabulous place to sit and watch the sunset. There are many more restaurants in the village plus a local bakery, butchers, hairdressers and a bustling wed morning market. Several ATM's are available in the village.
For a slightly more sophisticated evening, why not indulge in one of the five fish restaurants on the Azmak river, A fresh menu of bream, bass, mullet and shell fish are available to be eaten on the edge of the cooling fast flowing river .Bordering the beach is the small harbour at the base of the River Azmak. Here local fishing boats provide Fish or Kofte (meatballs) snacks and Tea/ Soft drinks etc.
Several boats are available to hire. Fishing trips or day cruises or just a small boat trip up the river for breakfast or a beer.

Important Notice : Avoiding Fraud
It's rare, but some helpful hints to watch out for with regards to fraud:
- It is important to NEVER wire funds or use/employ other fund transfer mechanisms such as western union: Always use a credit card to protect yourself against fraud. If owners pressure you into providing a deposit or refuse to accept credit cards, there is a high probability that this is a scam.
- If at all suspicious of fraud, ask to see their website, or any other literature they can provide or send to you. Ask them for contact details for guests who have previously stayed on their property insisting on telephone numbers. Be suspicious of emails that originate from free email services (yahoo, hotmail, gmail, etc)
- Research the property thoroughly on the internet to see if there is any history or mention of scams associated with the property.
