dolmus in icmeler

Hello

I am visiting Icmeler for the first time in September and staying in apartments called Kleopatra which I believe are a bit of a walk from the sea front. Does anyone know if there is a dolmus service which will run near to these apartments to centre or beach. Also is there a dolmus station where you can use dolmus to other towns?

any info appreciated

The dolmus travels right round Icmeler, so you're never far away from it - and they run very frequently too. The final stop is near the harbour end of the beachfront. There isn't a dolmus station as such, but you can get the dolmus directly from Icmeler to Turunc or Marmaris. If you get the dolmus to the otogar (bus station) in Marmaris, you can get buses from there to a whole range of other towns and villages.

Just to add, you can also get the water taxis from the beachfront to both Marmaris and Turunc as well.

In all the Countries we have visited, I have found the Dolmus service in the Turkish resorts we have stayed at to be the best bus service we have encountered abroad (as long as we get a seat)

I particularly welcomed the service during our last visit to Icmeler as we stayed at the Julian Forest

Quite a climb for us from the resort centre/front up to the Julian Forest.

The frequent dolmus service is a real bonus in my view.

Essential for us oldies who toil walking far in the heat.

Although Icmeler, in general, is fine to walk around in mobility wise

We found that ,anyway

Good reason for returning, eh? ;-)

We always stay In the Village area and when we get a dolmus we say the name of he accommodation where we are staying and they usually drop us of nearby. They do have designated bus stops but tend to go wherever you want.

If we go to Turunc, we usually get the dolmus one way and water taxi the other. I know some people say they find the road over the mountain to Turunc a bit scary, but you get some spectacular views and the scenery is stunning.

Hi,

we stayed at the Kleopatra apartments a couple of years ago and it's not to bad to walk into town about 10 mins to the square, we find as a family of four that a taxi works out as cheap as a dolmus as it's 2TL or 2.5TL per person where as a taxi was 10TL but you get door to door service without having to wait so this was always easier than dolmus for short journeys around Icmeler, but for longer journeys ie into Marmaris the dolmus then makes more sense money wise.

We enjoyed our stay at the Kleopatra and had a great holiday, the guys who run the hotel are great and very friendly so relax and enjoy your holiday it's in a great location.
