Aktur Bay is one of the oldest holiday destinations in Bodrum. It is a popular town t visit should you be looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of the city. Located on a wide bay with a sheltered sandy beach, this long sandy beach is also located between Ortakent and Bitez. The water is also pretty clear to swim in. Along the coast, you will notice that Aktur Bay is a popular place to moor for yachts. The village at this bay has colourful mature gardens, traditional houses all in the comfortable shade of the pine trees. Facilities are all available on site, along with bus services to visit the nearby towns. Should you have enjoyed the beach long enough you might want to venture into the forest and hike up the hills to catch an even more picturesque view of the entire bay. Either way a great way to enjoy a late afternoon or the evening is to try any of the fresh seafood caught by any of the several restaurants or tavernas that line the beach. If you have enjoyed this bay other travellers go beach hopping – or bay hopping at either Poyraz Bay, Meteor Bay or Cokertme Bay.
