Akyaka Things to Do

  • Akyaka boattrip with a motoryacht to...

    Don't take the big tourist boat in Akyaka! Much more intresting to go to the harbour and make an agreement with the captain of a motoryacht. Ask for half a day or whole day tour. You can swim in a bay, visit the island and navigate back tot Akyaka in the eveningsun. The prices are reasonable, and if you are staying in a hotel (Yucelen very good)...

  • Cedar Island

    You should take a boat to go to Cedar Island and swim at Kleopatra Beach. The sand of the beach is very special and it is protected; therefore you can't bring slippers, towels with you. You have to have a shower as you leave the beach in order to make sure that you don't carry the sand with you out of the beach. What is so special about the sand?...

  • Sedir ( Kedrai ) island and Cleopatras'...

    A nice drive down south 30 mins to 1 hour max with the old road on your left in places.Follow the signs to Sedir island,not hard,and then catch the boat.Morning is probably calmer but rough it's not bad even in November with a cold wind as the boats can easily manage.Kedrai means cedar in Greek .The island is dissappointing with only 1 restaurant...

  • River tour

    Walk to the harbour and the first couple of boats do the river tour.An Autumn morning was not the best time but still 15 degrees warm and the slow cruise upstream and back for half an hour was all we could spare but worth it.The crystal clear water amongst the reed beds is amazing,you can see everything underwater.Several cafes and restaurants...

Akyaka Restaurants

  • Great food & atmosphere

    Feron restaurant is a stone's throw from the beach front so ideally situated for a meal without battling the heat or breeze. It's run by a Geordie lass and her Turkish husband, with Turkish staff (they used to run Kazan a couple of years ago which also has a review from their time there). Warm and welcoming with reasonably priced food, good sized...

    Night life in the village is poor. Late night dinners are very popular. There are a couple of bars, but not compared to the ones in MArmaris and Bodrum. The village is more for couples like to walk on the beach under the moonlight!

Akyaka Off The Beaten Path

    Sunset near the power station

    by Tdiver Updated Feb 2, 2006

    We came from Marmaris to Akyaka through some wild back roads,forest roads and along the bay and passed some great places to picnic,party and swim with almost noone else around.Maps are probably useless and out of date so just see what you can discover.The local power station on the north side of the bay and either side and inland are your target.

    by erendilight Updated Jun 2, 2005

    cennet cukuru is one of the best diving attractions in the area.. you can go there by the agencies from dalyan or akyaka.. it is between 70-80 euros per person...

    Equipment: all kinda diving equipment.. if you do not have them you can rent from the agencies but the price will get higher..
