Azmak is the name in short of a short but deep stream which joins the sea in Akyaka and formed by springs extending about two miles from East to West. Its depth allows boats to travel up it for a considerable distance. This allows you to see the richness of its underwater fauna watercress and celery thrive which feeds the fish and small turtles.. The water is very cold and slightly salty due its level course with the sea across the plain.
Small boat trips take you up the length of the river – either hire your own or join in for 5 tl with the local Turkish tourists. Children love this little trip where you can see directly the bottom of the deep river and its fish. On a hot day jump into its cold refreshing water and let the stream force carry you down to join with the salty waters of the gulf.
Over the past few years kite surfing has become very popular with both Turkish and International guests and in the afternoon as the winds rise at the end of the gulf the area is dotted with many colourful kites.
Paragliding is also popular from the surrounding cliffs as Is kayaking and boating. Many boats do daily trips to Cleopatra Island where Cleopatra and Mark Anthonly lived – it is said the sand was brought to the island from Egypt.
