About Akyarlar Akyarlar used to be an old Greek village, equivalent from the Greek style houses that still adorn it’s coastline. The houses along the coast are typical Greek houses. The Greeks used this place as their summer resort. It is believed that Akyarlar's ancient Greek residents called it ‘Kefaluka’. The most ancient name of Akyarlar is ‘Arhialla’. The Leleges people settled in the area and built an antique city close-by. That antique city was known as Termera. The village has four beaches. The local fish restaurants, pita-bars , pastry-shop, and pide sellers are giving the village a unique character.
