Book a Akyaka holiday with Diamond Sky Holidays and enjoy a fabulous beach holiday in luxurious surroundings. Akyaka is an idyllic beach resort at the head of the Gulf of Gokova, nestling in deep pine forests and eucalyptus woods, with a backdrop of the majestic Sakar Tepe Mountains. There are some wonderful hotels for 4 & 5 star holidays in Akyaka with amenities and facilities to keep you entertained.
On the whole, you will find that a traditional way of life still continues in Akyaka, as it has been for hundreds of years. As you take in the breathtakingly beautiful scenery which surrounds you, you can watch the local fishermen mending their nets. The quiet town has plenty of restaurants on the seafront promenade and a couple of relaxed bars.
The whole region is protected against modern style development, so any new development has to blend in with the old, making Akyaka a truly wonderful place to holiday as it has retained an old world charm rarely seen elsewhere. The houses are all built in the traditional ‘Mugla’ style of architecture, many constructed out of pine in a distinctive octagonal shape and others have whitewashed walls and hand-carved wooden balconies and decorative features.
The long sandy beach of Akyaka is in a sheltered bay with shallow waters, ideal for children. You can take a boat trip to explore the crystal- clear waters and many untouched bays on this beautiful stretch of coast.
If you are looking for a relaxing break, our luxury holidays to Akyaka should be on your shortlist.
