Photographer's Note

Akçay is a municipality in the Edremit district of Balıkesir Province in western Turkey. It is located in the Edremit Bay at the coast of north-eastern Aegean Sea, across the Greek island Mitilini.

Akçay is 10 km west of Edremit on the highway D560 (E-87) to Altınoluk. With its long beach and clear sea, it is a highly popular summer resort for domestic tourists. Its population grows around 10-fold in the summer season. The very cool groundwater running into the sea keeps the sea fresh all the summer long.

In September 2005, a sea bus link to Mitilini is opened. The trip with the catamaran type fast ferry takes 75 minutes for the passengers of maximum 120.
