Akyarlar

This beach resort area known as Akyarlar is part of the Bodrum peninsula in Aegean Turkey. Once here it is hard to notice that this swanky shore feels like several resorts in one.  It is often overlooked by all the tourists arriving into Bodrum, so you tend to get real little look into a Turkish market town without the mass hoards of tourists. Akyarlar is composed of small coves and bays, hills with spread out cosy pensions and hotels. If you are lucky you might able to find accommodation with a view towards the Greek island of Kos. As for other neighbouring beaches there is a decent selection. On the east side is a beach framed by hills with a sandy beach and a few dining options. While on the west side it is a bit more organised with concrete platforms available along the shore to jump from and take a swim. There is also a small beach and a few daily boat trips working out of the harbour to take you out along the coastline if you feel like a day out on the waters.

There are regular minibuses that run between Akyarlar and Turgutreis. Other travellers also opt to visit Aspat and Golturkbuku while in the area.
