The Bodrum & Akyarlar volcanics belong to the area of the active Cos volcanic complex and are the most western volcanics of Turkey.


The peninsula of Bodrum and Akyarlar is dominated by old dacitic andesitic lava extrusions and lava domes. Their age is probably Pleistocene and the first eruptions took place +- 2-3 mil. years ago.
