Went here via dolmus from ouldeniz ourselves. Was very hot with not much shelter once at ghost city. You have to pay 5tl and there are families trying to make pound selling hand crafted goods at the entrance. It's slidy under foot with the heat on stones you will need decent shoes to climb the top, some had flip flops... More

We caught a bus to the ghost village, cheap and easy. 5 lira to get in to village.The scale of the old village is amazing, to think it was left so quickly by the Greeks such a long time ago. We walked through the village up to a chapel high on a hill. Very hot as we were there in... More

We were very undecided about whether or not to visit Kaya village as the temperature was nearly 40 degrees for most of our holiday. We arrived at the bus stop in Hisaronu which was supposedly every 30mins, we waited nearly an hour but I am glad we did as we all thoroughly enjoyed the few hours we spent walking around... More

We drove their in our hire car,but there were many taxis parked there when we arrived. Definately worth a visit. We read there was an entrance fee, but nobody was there - very common not to have to pay, whereever we visited - Odd buidings, - last lived in in 1920's, but looked older than that. No need to keep... More

Made the trip from Calis by dolmus-first travelled to Fethiye then changed to the Kaya dolmus. Arrived about 10 a.m. and was glad because it got so hot as the day progressed. Really enjoyed walking around the ruins and the site was much larger than I expected. Nothing was signed so not always sure what I was looking at. Never... More

Visited first thing in the morning before it was too hot and climbed through the village to the top. An interesting but eerie place. It's a bit of a climb but not too challenging. Stunning views of the 'Ghost Town', surrounding country and adjacent coast from the top of the hill. Lots of choice of cafés and restaurants in the... More

Been to the area several times but never managed to visit 'The Ghost Town' before. We made our own way there on a Dolmus which was really easy & cheap. The place has a really serene feel about it & interesting history.It was a lot bigger than i had imagined & you could actually spend all day there. There are... More

Best time to visit the town is in the early evening and then spend wonderful time in the beautiful traditionally laid out restaurant by the entrance to the village. Entry fee to town is very low and the meal is really good price, so not an expensive outing. If possible, obtain phone number of the restaurant as the owner will... More
