Akyaka - Gifts, Memories and More
The Gulf of Gökova, Gökova Körfezi, or Gulf of Kerme (Turkish: Kerme Körfezi, ), is a long (100 km), narrow gulf of the Aegean Sea between Bodrum Peninsula and Datça Peninsula in south-west Turkey.
The alluvial plain, also named Gökova, which extends to the Gulf’s end, is the location of the townships of Akyaka and Gökova, with only a few kilometers separating the two. These settlements saw their populations considerably increase in recent years, with Akyaka, especially, becoming a rising center of tourism.
Locally and casually, erroneously or confusingly, the township of Akyaka is sometimes referred to as Gökova, after the name of the gulf and the plain, while there is also an inland township of Gökova neighbouring Akyaka, whose intersection is further ahead in the direction of Marmaris
