Zeytinli, is 15 minutes away from the center of Akcay. A river runs out into the beach by the promenade and the sandy beach is picturesque with its holiday homes and it has an air and a feel of the 1980’s about it. In Turkey people with young families tend to buy their holiday homes in their mid 40’s and then grow old with them. Zeytinli expanded rapidly in the mid 1980’s and has kept its older style. Everything is very relaxed and peaceful. There are few hotels on the beautiful sandy Zeytinli beach and plenty of places to eat and drink.
Zeytinli has an annual Rock Festival around August September time. It is normally held on the beach and features some very well known Turkish artists. Check out their Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/zeytinlirockfest/
