Coach Tours & Day trips
Day tours can be booked locally to visit the historic site of Ephesus with its acres of ancient artefacts including the Temple of Artemis and the 25,000 seater theatre of Ephesus.
Another tourist favourite is to Pamukkale to see the unique calceus formations.
A trip to Caunos and then a boat trip along the River Dalyan to see the Lycian royal rock tombs
Closer to hand is the village of Iasos, just across the sea from Gulluk, where the ruins of the ancient city can be seen. The best way to visit is to either hire a car/rent a scooter or if you are lucky, get a boat trip across.
The local town of Milas also boasts many architectural artefacts and is only a dolmus ride away.
Bodrum offers a wealth of shops and restaurants as well as many historical tourist sites. A major landmark is Bodrum Castle which was built in the 15th century in honour of St. Peter by the Crusader Knights of Rhodes. Today it houses the Bodrum Museum of Underwater Archaeology which is the largest of its kind in the world.
Not far away is the site of one of the Seven Ancient Wonders of the World, The Maussoleum, which is the monumental tomb of Mausolos, King of Caria.

Ferry to Kos
Catch the early dolmus from Gulluk to Bodrum and you could go for a day trip by ferry to the Greek island of Kos.
There is basically nothing in Gulluk but further afield, you have the famous ‘Halikarnas’ in Bodrum and the ‘Marine Club Catamaran’. There are some early morning return dolmus in summer, otherwise you would probably have to return by taxi or take advantage of overnight accommodation.
