Akbuk, Didim Video


Akbuk is surrounded by green forests and lovely beaches. The ground is fairly level, making it perfect for building, and it has a building restriction that only bungalows or two storey properties can be constructed. This will mean that the area will have a wealth of large detached villas with large gardens and will therefore be very upmarket and command high prices. The low 15% building permission is restricted to help prevent the area looking built up. The government has restricted that 85% of the land in Akbuk has to remain as green area. In contrast to Altinkum, Akbuk is largely untouched and unspoilt by the tourist industry. Akbuk offers blue flag beaches, shops, restaurants and bars. Akbuk is within easy driving distance of a number of stunning sights including Bafa Lake and the Apollon Temple. It has easy access to Altinkum and many other cultural and social activities, whether it is enjoying the local cuisine or enjoying a sense of history by visiting the ruined Roman city of Ephesus, there is plenty to do for everyone!

Turkey / Türkei - Didyma Apollontempel / Temple of Apollon


Didyma (Greek: Δίδυμα) was an ancient Ionian sanctuary, the modern Didim, Turkey, containing a temple and oracle of Apollo, the Didymaion. In Greek didyma means "twin", but the Greeks who sought a "twin" at Didyma ignored the Carian origin of the name. Next to Delphi, Didyma was the most renowned oracle of the Hellenic world, first mentioned among the Greeks in the Homeric Hymn to Apollo, but an establishment preceding literacy and even the Hellenic colonization of Ionia. Mythic genealogies of the origins of the Branchidae line of priests, designed to capture the origins of Didyma as a Hellenic tradition, date to the Hellenistic period.

Didyma was the largest and most significant sanctuary on the territory of the great classical city Miletus. To approach it, visitors would follow the Sacred Way to Didyma, about 17 km long. Along the way, were ritual waystations, and statues of members of the Branchidae family, male and female, as well as animal figures. Some of these statues, dating to the 6th century BC are now in the British Museum, taken by Charles Newton in the 19th century.

Greek and Roman authors laboured to refer the name Didyma to "twin" temples — not a feature of the site — or to temples of the twins, Apollo and Artemis, whose own cult center at Didyma was only recently established, or whether, as Wilamowitz suggested there is a connection to Cybele Dindymene, "Cybele of Mount Dindymon", is mooted. Recent excavations by the German team of archaeologists have uncovered a major sanctuary dedicated to Artemis, with the key ritual focus being water.

The 6th-century Didymaion, dedicated to Apollo, enclosed its smaller predecessor, which archaeologists have identified. Its treasury was enriched by gifts from Croesus.

About Akbuk

Akbuk is a charming place overlooked by majestic green mountains and facing the calm and blue waters of the Aegean Sea. It is an increasingly popular destination for foreigners because of its relaxed atmosphere, quiet beaches and stunning backdrop of mountain forests.

Akbuk has become a rising trend on the real estate industry with its natural environment as well as its history. Many years ago Akbük was a small town where all the local fishermen caught delicious Aegean sea bass, but now has its growing tourism, with holiday complexes as well as summer houses, villas, harbour, and hotels. Akbuk became a township in 1991 and is developing quite nicely just as planned. Most of the infrastructural work has been completed. Clean roads, beautiful and very calm beaches welcome you to Akbuk as it is an ideal resort for those who love to spend quiet and peaceful times. Many people who visit Akbük from the big cities often decide to stay here after their retirement.

The economy related tourism in recent years has made it possible for the local fishermen's boats to operate boat trips along the coasts of Akbuk for the duration of the summer months. During your visit to Akbuk, the chapel on the coast line close to the town center is very well preserved and can be visited as it is open to the public. There are 3 star hotels and also one 4 star hotel, along with one resort for French tour operators rated at 5 stars. There are also small pansiyons & motels available to rent during the summer season. Restaurants by the sea, serve delicious fish and local food, which are at very reasonable prices.
