Akvaryum Beach Travel Guide
You can call Akvaryum Beach Palamutbükü or Gerence Beach. But, whatever you say, the cleanest sea of Turkey is located in Datça. Due to its proximity to Greece, its beaches are very similar to those in Greece. Datça is a small settlement, you cannot see big hotels. There are only boutique hotels. The coves are untouched, there is no business, and everyone can have a comfortable picnic.
The water of the Akvaryum Beach is as clear as the water of an aquarium. Therefore, you can watch the creatures in the sea while swimming. The stones of the beach are mostly colored red and pink. There are stones of all colors. The water is very cold. It is between the two capes extending towards the sea. There are also many cavernous cavities. The view of the beach is magnificent. There are no stairs to go down to the beach. While people were going up and down, they created a path with footprints, and this path is used to get down. It is not a tough way, you can easily get off with your belongings.
However, my advice to those who want to come to this beautiful beach is to set off with a car rental. You can park your car up, there is no parking fee. The forest area where cars are parked is also ideal for setting up a tent. There are trees to set up swings and hammocks, and it will be comfortable to set up a tent as the ground is flat. In addition, the distance you will go to meet your needs such as market, etc. is maximum 3-4 km. There are no businesses on the beach. It is recommended that you bring your vital foods and drinks with you, such as water and bread.

Muğla Dalaman Airport car rental will be the most logical choice for those who will come by plane. I recommend you to take a look at the other bays (bük) that continue in rows while you are at Akvaryum Beach. Palamutbükü is one of the most visited ones.
By the way, “bük” (waterside thicket) means a community of thorns, reeds and shrubs that are very common, difficult to enter, on the plain, on the shores of lakes or streams. Since everywhere is bushy in Datça, all bays are called “bük”.
