Altinkum and Bodrum

Aegean Turkey

If value for money and guaranteed (well, virtually) sunshine then Turkey has to be the choice - the second most visited country by British visitors in the summer. Here at Suncastle we offer properties on the Aegean in Altinkum, neighbouring Akbuk as well as properties in Bodrum, Kusadasi, Fethiye and even Istanbul. 

Arriving into the resort of Altinkum you will see straight away where it gets its name from. Altinkum means golden sands and has several gloriously sandy beaches which gently shelve in the warm Aegean Sea .

Located about 70km from Bodrum airport this up and coming resort has everything to offer the holiday maker or resident whilst maintaining its definite Turkish feel. There are three larger beaches in the resort, all of which offer all kinds of watersport and activities. Along main beach the promenade slopes around, lined with various bars, shops and restaurants. Dining in Altinkum is varied and of a high standard. Restaurants compete with international menus and traditional Turkish food.

Although quite a sleepy resort during the day, Altinkum comes alive at night with its various bars and nightclubs. The resort has changed dramatically over the past few years. Whilst it still retains its Turkish charm, the resort has expanded and the main road leading you out of the resort will bring you past several large supermarkets, to the town of Didim . On a Saturday you will be mixing with the locals at the market. The market sprawls out and offers a wide variety. Just a few minutes away are the ancient temple of Apollo . Right on your doorstep, there is one of the finest examples of ancient Greek architecture. Spend time during the day wandering around its columns, and dine at night in the traditional restaurants which overlook it.
