Vacation Rental Description
Mandalya Gardens Apartments have arrived and what a perfect location! The apartments and resort typify the way we like to holiday; laid back, relaxed and stylish, we love them and we know you will too.
The beautiful town of Akbuk (meaning 'White Bay') sits nestled between the crystal clear waters of the Aegean sea and spectacular protected mountain forests and olive groves. The idyllic scenery, breathtaking sunsets and quiet beaches make Akbuk the perfect place to relax and unwind.
Historically a small fishing village supplying delicious Aegean Sea Bass, Akbuk has now been discovered by tourists attracted by it's unique blend of nature and history. Increasing numbers are moving into the area to share in the laid back lifestyle and health benefits - Akbuk is purported to have the lowest humidity and highest oxygen ratio in the whole of Turkey.
Akbuk's idyllic natural beauty is subject to strict preservation orders, a protection not afforded to other bigger, less exclusive resorts. The harbour is peaceful, even in summer, and has been awarded the internationally-recognised Blue Flag award for cleanliness. Aside from the picturesque bay and beaches there are a number of things to do in and around Akbuk so you can make your stay as relaxing or active as you like!
There is a wide range of restaurants, bars and cafes dotted along the harbour and beach-front where you can relax and take in the beautiful views. One of our favourite places to eat is The Garden Restaurant which sits overlooking the beach. It's laid-back friendly atmosphere is the perfect place to enjoy authentic local cuisine, the flavour of which is enhanced by the wood fired ovens and barbecue. Taking a 10-15 minute walk along the waterfront you will find a rich variety of restaurants/cafes offering food that caters to all tastes, including traditional local dishes.
There are a variety of small shops in Akbuk. Fresh bread, fruit & vegetables are incredibly cheap. There is a local market every Friday, where you can buy freshly caught fish, vegetables, spices and clothing. There are also a variety of shops and modern supermarkets providing everything you would expect for your stay.
Akbuk is situated on the Aegean coast just 20 minutes from the lively resort of Altinkum, around 50 minutes from Bodrum airport and approximatley 1hr 45m from Izmir airport
