Akbuk is an idyllic, quiet resort with pretty beach-front restaurants, surrounded by olive trees. Still very Turkish in atmosphere and unspoiled by heavy development, Akbuk has the potential to be the next big thing.
The area’s archaeological importance means there are strict planning regulation in place, only 15% of any plot of can be built upon meaning many areas are allocated for green spaces which has helped the town maintain its charming character.
Akbuk has a micro climate due to it being surrounded by a range of Pine Forest mountains, which also makes it one of the healthiest places in the region due. With all this in mind, it’s no surprise the area is attracting growing interest from property developers and investors alike, because of the demand, land and property prices are set to increase.
Akbuk is now very accessible via road and sea, with its newly extended and refurbished idyllic small harbour as a centre focal point to the village. A new highway over and through the mountains is under construction, the local Tourism Minister put a proposal to the Turkish Prime Minister when he was in Didim early 2009 opening the new marina, to request the new fast road links opened in 2011, this making travelling time to Bodrum Milas airport less than an hour, and the new fast road also well under construction to Izmir gives, good access to both airports.
