At first glance Azmak river reminded me of the rivers that can only be seen in National Geographic documentaries of pristine natures, it’s such a feast for the eyes!

Just imagine a shimmering fast flowing river with a bunch of ducks and geese gliding, floating, and paddling on it! The crystal clear water lets you see pebbles and vegetation on its floor!

The source of the river is the springs originating from the mountains and in the end, it joins the Gulf of Gokova, who wouldn’t want to dip their feet or dive into that clean and cool water on a sizzling summer day?

Boat trip

As you walk along the river you will see visitors swimming in it, chilling on their picnic chairs, or sunbathing! It took us around half an hour to get to the boat station near the harbor from which we took a boat trip. On the boat trip, we saw some special species of birds and there was a deep part called the aquarium where the boat stopped and let us look for fish. I saw two big fish but couldn’t see any colorful ones. The fee for the boat trip was 30 TL per person and it’s better to sit near the edge of the boat if you want to have a better view otherwise your view will be partially blocked by the roof and other people on the boat.

Cafes, Restaurants, and Local markets

There were plenty of restaurants, cafes, and hotels located on the bank of the river. Some of the restaurants were on the pier and you could have your meal or drink while dipping your feet into the water. We went to Azmak restaurant and ordered “Kofte” and “ Sac Kavurma". The food was mediocre and the price same as other restaurants in the area. It was very clean, but the staff didn't look very friendly to me. We had our lunch with the breathtaking view of the river, and sometimes ducks got closer to us. The view was just stunning!

Near the harbor, there are many juice bars, cafes, restaurants, and booths selling handicrafts. We tried cactus fruit known as prickly pears for the first time and it was tasty.

On the beach of the Gulf, you can see people swimming and sunbathing. Akyaka harbor featuring an array of palm trees is a beautiful place for a short walk and taking photos.

If you are a history lover don’t miss out on visiting İnişdibi rock tombs which are located around a 10-minute drive away from the river. The rock tombs are secured, and you can see them and take photos from the outside of those boundaries. There are ongoing excavations in the area and seems that in the near future the remnants of the ancient city will be brought to the surface.

I highly recommend all Marmaris visitors to see Azmak river in Akyaka, it's too good to miss it!

Took a 30 minute boat tour along the river, busy queue to start,this is a very popular thing to do in Akyaka.The tour was leisurely, water was crystal clear, we can see the bottom of the fast flowing stream, very vibrant foliage can be seen underwatee. We saw few species of birds and the resident ducks and geese.
Locals and tourists a like were taking a cooling dip by the river banks.

A great area to relax. I suggest you find a place for yourself, especially under the tree. Afterwards, you can enjoy nature by turning your camping chair towards the river. The water temperature averages 12 °C. I suggest you go into the water.

Perfect place to chill out. Dive into the stream of the cold river and let it take you hundreds of meters without effort. Then walk up and do it again. Please keep the river and around clean!

Azmak is not just a river for you to enjoy the view. The water comes from the mountains. It's cold but very healthy. Once you jump in, you'll be addicted. Feel your skin and hair afterwards, you won't regret :)

This was part of a trip we took and it felt very different from what we'd been doing. A little boat trip amongst nature in crystal clear water. With the mountains providing the backdrop. After the boat trip I went back down and put my feet in. Very refreshing and just a little different from being by the beach which is only a 5 minute walk away

Good escape especially at hit weekends. You can walk along the river or swim if you like xold fresh water. There are some restaurants and cafes around but pricy. Try 20mins.river tour. Night time also attractive.

It’s incredibly clear with a forest like plants in it. Quite cold and strong current if you like to swim(which I enjoyed). I’d advice to take a boat trip first and see.

Visited Akyaka for the day whilst staying in Marmaris. One bus to Marmaris bus station then another that stopped on the motorway for Akyaka. It was a 5min walk to the footpath. Views were stunning to look down at this village. Took about 15mins to walk down to the start of the village. Quite steep and all downhill to the sandy beach, it was quite when I visited, got the river boat around the village. Got a lovely fresh bread spiced chicken salad roll and soft drink from Pinarlar restaurant. All in this outing cost me £9. A great day out and great value for money.
