The beach can get busy from around 1-30pm with all the Gullets bringing in hoards of invading tourists so its best not to pick a spot too near the jetty.
P.S. I have a lovely story to tell about the owners of the Akpinar who also own the beach area and camels.
I have lived in Konacik for 11yrs (holiday home) There are a number of points to be considered when speaking of beaches. The main being accessibility and fascilities. The ideal situation is find a beach you like then buy your property close to it (not the other way round ). The other is hire or buy a car ( which can be complicated ) which will give you access to all the beaches the bus cannot get to. Camel beach is good but lacks fascilities. Yashi seems to get wind and tide that drives all the refuse towards the beach. Bodrum forget it. Gundoen (we had an apartment here too ) Is ok but small. I could go on but in the end it is how far do you want to travel to get to the beach. Our favourite beach is Bitez, and the front has been completely modernised for 2016. Plenty of restaurants and fascilities and is totaly flat. Aktur was mentioned but this is a private beach and is for the use by the Aktur residents, hence the security.
