Akbuk is on the west coast of Turkey facing out to the Aegean. It is situated at the bottom of mountains with forests on their slopes. It is sheltered from the prevailing winds, north west and west. There is a deep and wide cove below the mountains that reach up to 1,000 metres above sea level. There is a rocky landscape that is entirely natural and no construction is allowed to change that. There is pine as well as olive in Akbuk where walking and exploring is a good activity away from the beach. There is no need to do anything other than lie on the beach, with the occasional swim to cool off. There are a number of open-air restaurants with an excellent selection of dishes, including seafood which is inevitably something caught that day. Akbuk gets many yachts sailing through with many anchoring to take in the highlights of the region.
Akbuk is located near Didim (Turkey) 37° 23' 9.9270" N , 27° 25' 52.4578" E
