Dolmus to Kaya

Hi can anyone tell me if we can get a dolmus to Kaya from Hisaronu and if it is worth going and can we get a dolmus back?

Any info appreciated as I don't know much about it and if we can even get there!

Thanks, Helen

Hi,

Yes you can get the Dolmus from the bottom end of Hisaronu.

I would definately say Kayakoy is worth a visit, when we visited we spent the morning looking around the old village and then had lunce at Muzzys place and a swim in his pool.

A very nice day out.

If you you go to the Istanbul Restaurant, the owner, Engin, will most likely run you back in his car, free of charge. So long as you eat/drink there.

If not, yes, the Dolmus simply does a round trip. Its only two or three miles from Hisaronu. Have a look at the restaurant reviews here on Trip Advisor for The Istanbul and Muzzys and make your mind up as to which place looks better before you you go.

The dolmus runs approx every half hour too and from Kaya although we waited nearly an hour for one to get back but was worth it.

Muzzy will be happy for you to wait there. He even invites people to sit in the shade at his tables whilst they wait regardless of whether they buy and drink or not. The bus stops right outside Muzzys Place and he wont let you miss it!

The bus leaves from outside Harry's bar which is located at the lower end of Hisaronu. On the hour and half past the hour. Kayakoy is well worth a visit and Harry's bar is nice too if you have time for a cold drink!

Lol, of course Kayaköy is worth the visit! The village is lovely and not only where are the deserted Greek houses, especially if you walk around a bit in the dirt roads between the fields. The village is still so unspoilt and you can meet the very friendly locals!

There are lots of good places to sit and eat. Next t the one already mentioned: Antik and Poseidon just next to the lower church, very relaxing and great for gözleme, Turkish pancakes. Blue Butterfly or Mavi Kelebek and Sarnic both very good for a selection of mezzes. Both have a lovely garden and no big tour buses rolling up...

Cin Bal if you like to eat the best lamb, you get a bbq at your table and you can grill yourself. Very popular with the locals. Yalcin, Keyif and Kaya Park do the same. The latter has 3 ostriches in their garden.

İzela and Jazibe for more fine dining. Jazibe does a wonderful breakfast/brunch on Sundays. Then there are a few more places near the village but İ assure you it is better to explore a bit more!

Enjoy!

By the way, as well as in Kayaköy as in Hisarönü, the bus stops everywhere, you can just flag it down. All you need to be sure of that you are on the right side of the road. There are some bus stops but you do not necessarily have to be there :-)
