18 May 2017Staying just outside Akbuk at Aurum Beach and Spa resort. We arrive June 8th but am wondering is it safe to visit Akbuk ? It looks lovely.

Reply from webmaster - Why wouldn't it be safe? Just don't get involved in any political rally's or break the law and you will be fine. Enjoy your holiday, the Aurum is a lovely resort.

15 September 2016After reading Erica's interesting recall of years gone past it made me realise just how much Akbuk has changed, I didn't discover it until 2004 but even since then I have seen many changes and personally not for the better, although thankfully world wide economics have slowed things down. Having said that I spent some great times in Akbuk and unless you are aware of all the changes it still has bucket loads of appeal & charm and certainly worth a visit.

14 September 2016I read Erica's interesting article on early Akbük. My Turkish wife and I bought our summer house in Didim's Gaye 2 sitesi at the end of the 1970s. At that time we were unaware that Akbük even existed. We were luck enough to have drawn one of the houses in the front of the site and remember standing on the foundations of our house in 1980 having walked along the coast from Didim. The only way to get there was on foot, tractor or horseback, although the fishermen on the small jetty in Didim did offer to take us there by boat. The empty bottles of Rakı near the jetty persuaded us to decline their offer. During my many years in Didim I was able to monitor the development of Akbük town from my sailing dinghy as I sailed across to the other side of the bay from Didim. I moved to Bodrum two years ago but I still have fond memories of the area. I wonder if Erica remembers a small sailing boat with a distinctive red and blue sail off the Akbük coast.

14 September 2016Just read the lovely recollections of Erica about Akbuk over the years. A very charming and well written piece. Let's hope future changes are for the better and not too many more incursions into the hills behind us! Love the name 'the silk road'! Thanks
