Turkey has adopted the role of the number 1 tourist destination, overtaking Spain in the past two years. You are asking why? It is simple – less expensive (certainly for properties), fantastic climate and having shrugged off a once tarnished image people have now found hidden gems in this country and one of those hidden gems is Akbuk/Didim. Once a small town, now offers expansion to become a big city with newly built marina and proposed golf courses around the city.
Altinkum and Akbuk area are developing constantly and offer beautiful nature and history as well as many opportunities for investors and for people who would like to settle down.
The long awaited Marina project in Altinkum has been finished and was opened in June 2009. The New Marina Road is updating. This road will be the main entrance to the resort. Also a Turkish company has officially signed up to a 49 year lease to operate a golf course project with hotel and residential village.
The mortgage system got recently passed by the government and therefore it is the perfect time to buy your property before the prices increase.
Akbuk is a more laid back resort compared with that of Altinkum, however if you want the more up beat resort you can just hop on a dolmus (bus) to Altinkum and it takes 20 minutes.
Akbuk is very scenic with beautiful long sandy beaches surrounded by mountain views and pine forests. This resort offers everything tranquility for those who seek it and a vibrant nightlife nearby.
Why Altinkum/Didim ?
Today’s Didim is a rapidly growing holiday resort completely different than what it used to be 10-15 years ago welcoming large population of tourists with its beautiful beaches, ancient towns, culture, climate from all over the world. Comparing to the big tourist resorts like Bodrum, Kusadasi it’s not been spoiled we can say. Still it is very much possible in Didim / Altinkum to have a quiet vacation/stay without being trapped between loud music and partying young folks. This is exactly why Didim is a perfect resort; it offers the best of both worlds. Also newly built marina offers new opportunities for the growth of Didim.
