The small harbour is home to fishing boats carrying on the traditional activity of the town; regular boat trips also depart from here. Several charming fish-restaurants are located on the banks of the crystal-clear and ice-cold spring-fed stream that meets the sea at the harbour.

To the south of the town are protected wetlands, a haven for wildlife, to the north are the towering limestone cliffs of Sakar Hill, and to the west, forests of red pine extend along the remote coastline.  Akyaka is 1 hour from Dalaman airport and 30 minutes from Marmaris and and Mugla.
