Geography

Didim is located on the north shore of the gulf of Gulluk, opposite Bodrum


Didim is located on the north shore of the gulf of Gulluk, opposite Bodrum peninsula villages such as Torba Turkbuku, and Yalikavak. The district consists of Didim itself, a coastal town of 50,000 people, and a number of small towns including Altinkum (which means "golden sand"), Gümüşkum ("silver sand") and Sarıkum ("yellow sand").

Tourism is the main source of income for the area, especially in summer, but agriculture is also an important contributor; the main crops are wheat and cotton. Animals, especially sheep and goats, are raised mainly for local consumption.
