Bodrum - Antalya via Fethiye and Kas begining oct/nov

Hey all, - lots of time to think about this trip, but I was looking for some guidance.

Our plan has been to fly from Istanbul to Izmir on Oct 29th, rent a car and see Ephuses, and then head down to Bodrum for a couple nights. From there we need to head to to Antalya where I need to be there by the 6th of Nov.

We would like to stop in Fethiye and Kas, maybe a night at least one of these places.

CAn I do part of this by private boat charter? How about the drive would I have time?

Thank you.

Hi

Not sure about the private boat charter, Oct/Nov could prove to be quite stormy at sea so it might be a bit risky to rely on this form of transport.

Driving is perfectly do-able in the time frame.

As a guide:

Izmir - Bodrum around 4 hrs at a steady pace.

Bodrum - Fethiye again around 4 hrs

Fethiye - Anatalya around 2 hrs.

All the routes are very straight forward and for the most part on good roads.

Sue

Not sure if you meant to say Fethiye - Antalya is around 2 hours?

Via the coast road (D400) Fethiye to Kas is 1.5 to 2 hours and Kas to Antalya around 3 hours without stopping. Times will of course depend on driving style and, at least with Antalya, what part of the city you are going to.

Fethiye to Antalya by the shorter mountain route is 3.5 hours by express coach and under 3 hours by car.

Agreed, however the OP mentions going to Antalya via Kas which of course is significantly longer

Adana - FF thanks for the time corrections, I meant to say in my original post that the Fethiye - Anatalya bit was taken from google maps and not from my own experience, I guess google maps haven't driven the route either ;-)

And I assume more scenic, and interesting no?

both routes scenic - my preference would be the coastal one - unless I was in a hurry.

yea that was my thought. If we take a night or two in each stop then we can enjoy the trip and really see the coastal area.
