Distance from Yalikavak
Coming out on Sunday for 3 weeks, thinking of getting out and about. Anyone know driving distance to Altinkum and / or Marmaris please?

These mileages are from Bodrum so you'll have to add a bit for Yalikavak. It's about 75 miles to Marmaris - a lovely drive through the Gokova valley and a decent road. It's about 62 miles to Altinkum - again a decent road.

We've done the trip to Marmaris a couple of times and it's not a bad drive. Going over the tops you get some lovely views of Akyaka. Never driven all the way to Altinkum but have been to Akbuk - did it the back way once through all the small villages which was great - good road past Bafa Lake if you take the direct route.

Hi folks, not sure of the miles, but have driven from Altinkum to Yalikavak many times and it takes 2 hours plus, depending on time of day.

I have travelled from Yalikavak to Dalaman, it was the longest journey of my life. The journey to Altinkum didn't seem quite as long.

There is a really lovely beach there though well worth the journey alone.

Jouney to Marmaris can be fun if there is a thunderstorm as you pass over the hills just before Marmaris, you actually drive through the storm clouds, well we did. We were on our way to view a boat, when we finally arrived it turned out that lightning had struck a neighbouring boat and fried the electroncs on board, luckily the one we were going to view was OK ( as we bought it)

Depending on the time of year, they will be some stalls on the road side selling some great natural honey.
(before any smart a*** says all honey is natural, I am talking about unrefined real natural honey not what you buy in Kipa)
