Ottoman fortress on the summit of Mount Aspat and ruins of an
old Greek chapel on the slope welcome the traveller to this old
fishing village of Akyarlar. It ıs 18 kilometres from Bodrum and
used to a popular Greek summer resort long time ago as there are
many old houses lined on the shore. Fishing was the main
occupation until recently and local fleet of fishing boats would
fill the harbour. The fishing fleets are long gone and have been
replaced by daily tour boats. Nevertheless, Akyarlar remained
its intimate and cosy atmosphere.
The bay consists of the small harbour at one end and a
curving sandy beach sloping down into the incredible blue of
the Aegean. Opposite Akyarlar, 5 kilometres across the
strait, there lies the Greek Island Cos. There are regular
services from this Island to Bodrum.
