HELP! Getting back to Fethiye by bus from the Lycian Trail

Hi there,

This forum has been super helpful for planning my trip to Turkey. Hope someone can help me with a last-minute question public transportation along the Lycian Way.

My girlfriend and I will be doing a short 3-day hike along the Lycian Way from Olu Deniz to Alinca. I think this was actually suggested by several posters as a good abbreviated hike for people who don't have a lot of time.

Here's my question: how do we get back to Fethiye from Alinca? Is there a dolmus? Or would we have to hike all the way back to an earlier point and take a bus from there?

Wish I'd thought of this sooner, but hoping someone can offer some guidance before we leave Thursday. thanks much!

You would need to hike back and catch the Faralya/Kabak to Fethiye dolmuş

FF is correct, there is no transport in Alinca. I think you should consider leaving the trail at Kabak so you can catch the dolmus back or alternatively finding somewhere in Kabak to store your backpacks and doing the loop from Kabak to Alinca and back down to the beach. Although not a great distance, this is a steep ascent and coming down can be hard on the feet. We did the loop last September and I would not liked to have had a heavy back pack on. As an alternative you could consider walking to Kabak and turning back along the coastal path to George's House Faralya, it's a very pleasant trek. Are you starting from Fethiye, where are you staying on route?
