dolmus Fethiye to Bodrum

Hi,

I understand it is possible to catch a dolmus from Fethiye to Bodrum so can anyone tell me how long this journey takes and how much it is likely to be. Also, we'd really like to explore the area around Fethiye more so any tips for less touristy/off the beaten track places would be appreciated. Many thanks Noisette

no dulmuş on that route - but regular coaches - roughly every hour from the main otogar (bus station), takes between 3-4 hours and cost for single around 40+ lira.

for local less touristy

Kaya Koy 45 mins in dolmuş - loads to see and do.

Üzümlu about same time - not much there but pleasant to wander round.

loads more places to go but depends on what you would like to see - give us a bit more details.

Hi,

Thanks for that. Uzumlu sounds like just the sort of place we like to explore, quiet, rural and with its Turkish identity unspoilt by tourism and hopefully somewhere where we can eat traditional Turkish cuisine. Are there any similar villages nearby? We have previously been to Kaya Koy and will definately be visiting again We also love the coast so if you can recommend any quiet fishing resorts nearby that would be helpful too. Many thanks once again.

I visited Fethiye many times, but it was a few years ago now. One of our favourite activities was hiring either a motorbike or jeep and just driving into the country and up and down the coast seeing what we could find. One of the nicest beaches was just past Olu Deniz past a restaurant on a hill, I think it was called the Dolphin (well known) and we had the beach to ourselves.

Also we went into the hills behind Fethiye and it was nice to be really rural. We actually got lost up there and had to ask directions from some locals who could not speak any English and we could not speak any Turkish so they drew a map in the sand at the side of the road! It was all a great experience.

What time of year are you travelling? An evening dip at Calis beach is great too, we pulled our Jeep onto the far end of the beach and had a BBQ, lovely.
