Getting around Bodrum

There are regular ferryboat services to the Greek islands of Kos and Rhodes. There are also connections to Knidos, Didim and Dalyan. The ferryboats and sea-buses all leave from the main harbour. Highway Transportation to Bodrum from all over Turkey through bus services is available. Bus terminal is in the city center.

To get from your hotel / apartment in the city center we recommend the “dolmus”. Dolmus are small vans that connect different places in the city center and the nearest beaches. No need to pay attention to the times, as they are frequent, even at night. They are an excellent and economical means for both locals and tourists.

To visit the peninsula, we recommend car hire. The roads are great, you can choose to travel on the highway or on the streets that cross the villages. If you wish to visit sites such as Ephesus, Pamukkale the good idea is to choose a coach trip. They are cheap and very comfortable. Travelling by car in Turkey is expensive, since gasoline is more expensive than in Europe.
