Greek Waters Pilot
|Wind surfers find ideal surrounding in Akyarlar. The
marvelous scenery of the Greek Aegean islands is just in front of you and
it is perhaps one of the safest, sandiest beaches for children on the
peninsula. There are several cafes and a tiny harbor. Camping facilities
and a couple of small, inexpensive pensions for independent travelers.
Still this place has its own tranquil charm.
Bitez lies 3 miles west of Bodrum, in the bay next to Gümbet. The winds here are particularly favorable for windsurfing and several water sports operators are based here. The beach is sandy, with plenty of sunloungers and umbrellas for sunbathing, Away from the beach it is possible to wander through mandarin orange groves where oxen plough and life continues as before. The village itself is a 15 minute walk, or short drive, inland and remains totally unspoiled by tourism. The only Turkish Delight (Lokum) to be made on the peninsula is made here. Dolmuses leave for Bitez every 20-30 minutes from the main bus station in Bodrum.
Only 2-3 km away from Bodrum Gümbet is the place recently became almost a resort unto itself. Gümbet (named after Kümbet - these numerous white-domed cisterns in the area) features one of the longest and most popular beaches on the peninsula. Gümbet is also one of the most popular water sports centers with water-skiing, windsurfing, parasailing, etc. available.The popularity of Gümbet has also generated serious nightlife and the streets of Gümbet vibrate till dawn with the music from numerous bars, discos and street side-cafes.
