What travelers are saying
- Absolutely stunning place to visit to absorb some of the ancient culture of the country. The size and scale of the ruins cannot fail to impress when you read the information boards and realise the walls were originally 3 times higher. Very exposed so wear a hat and strong footwear. Plenty of cafes outside for much needed refreshments.Written September 10, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Clean beach with great facilities, changing cubicles, showers and toilets. There are loads of sun beds and parasols to hire. Water is shallow quite far out and great for those not so confident in the water. Water is clear and warm and great fun. Can’t wait to go back againWritten September 25, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Miletus Museum is found on the entrance road to Miletus Archeolgical site. There is sign posting from the main Milas to Söke road. There is a good surfaced road into the site which is near the village of Yeniköy.
The museum has a car park next to it. Entrance fee is 40TL. There is a separate entrance fee for the nearby ancient city ruins. Historic Ilyas Bey Mosque is a short walk from the car park.
The museum is small but well presented There are information boards in Turkish and in English.
Most items are from Miletus but also from Priene and Didyma. The exhibits from Didyma are mainly the statues from the Sacred Way that linked this sanctuary with Miletus.
Among the objects from Miletus, there are terracotta figurines, ceramics, and jewellery including gold pendants, necklaces, and rings. One can also admire numerous statues, including river god Meander in repose, taken from the Baths of Faustina. The oldest objects are from the Minoan time of 3000BC to 1450BC. This part of the museum collection is complemented by the exhibits from a nearby hill Zeytintepe, which was a sanctuary of the goddess Aphrodite. There are also objects from Kazartepe - the necropolis from the Hellenistic and Roman times, located south of Miletus.Written August 9, 2022
- We thought we would take our 4 year old to the local water park to try before we made the journey to the larger one over an hour away, but ended up bringing her here twice instead. Yes it’s run down and needs a massive overhaul but it’s cheap.
The kids pool is fantastic and there are 3 great flumes. Highly recommend for younger families. The bigger slides for older kids look like a disaster waiting to happen and I wouldn’t be happy letting my kids on them when older. Very old and dangerous looking, and not properly manned.
Be careful on the tiles, lots of rough and broken tiles, and the matting around the pool is very rough on wet skin. My wee one had both feet bleeding, so definitely bring swim shoes for the pool (even though the attendants will try and get you to remove them).
The food is hit or miss. The pizza is delicious but the burger meat is suspect.
It’s definitely aimed more at locals than tourists but my 4 year old daughter had a blast both times we went, so would recommend for younger families.Written October 21, 2019
- Having had the luck to pass through this village on a trip out to Militos istopped here for a coffee, Akkoy is a truely old village with its white painted old houses not alot there but then you come for the culture and wiled away some time looking at the many paintings very goodWritten May 24, 2018
- For 10 TL a ride, the price felt fair. The kids (2 and 6 year-old) had a blast, and us, adults, also enjoyed some of the rides. Our favorite was the Frisbee, and the least favorite was the Crazy Dance. We also tried the Gondol (the swinging ship), which was the most adrenaline filled ride, but we did feel a bit unsafe in it. But overall, we had a lot of fun.Written August 17, 2021
