Akyarlar is a small and sleepy fishing town, about thirty minutes drive from the ever popular Bodrum, but is well worth a visit in its own right. Due to its nature as a fishing town, Akyarlar naturally has many small restaurants that serve fantastic fresh seafood and because of its size, and proximity to Kos, there are rarely as many tourists as other areas might have.
There is also a small market on Thursdays, where locally grown produce can be bought, as well as fabrics and soft furnishings. And when you’ve walked around and witnessed all that Akyarlar has to offer, make sure to visit the crescent shaped beach, the main attraction here, with Forbes magazine voting it one of the most luxurious stretches in the world.
But not only is the perfect golden sand of the beach why you have to visit, the curl of the waves in the coastal wind offers a fantastic opportunity for windsurfers to meet a challenge. Overall Akyarlar is a beautiful location worthy of at the very least a day trip, if only just to experience the locally grown cuisine and play on the phenomenal beach.
