Bodrum holidays

A tranquil market town by the sea

The peaceful market town of Akyarlar sits at the south west tip of the Bodrum peninsula, just 10 kilometres from Turgutreis. Compared to the crowds of tourists that reach nearby Bodrum and Turgutreis each season, it's gloriously quiet with an authentic Turkish feel. Choose a holiday to Akyarlar in Turkey and discover this little-known resort before the secret gets out. 

Akyarlar faces the Greek Island of Kos and it's this location that explains why the droves of European visitors haven't quite colonised this particular stretch as military law forbids foreigners from owning property overlooking foreign lands. The secluded bay features a little crescent beach bedecked with loungers and parasols and backed by a handful of cafés and restaurants. Punctuate blissful beach days with a boat trip from the jetty to explore the coves and inlets along the coast.

Take a ride in a local 'dolmus' minibus to reach Bodrum in 30 minutes and Turgutreis in 20 minutes.
