Explore The central and southern Aegean
Hourly dolmuşes and full-size buses cover the route between Söke and Altınkum beach via Didim village, the modern name for Didyma. It’s a fifty-minute ride to the village; ask to be dropped off at the junction 200m from the ruins, otherwise buses will continue on to the otogar, 2km out of Didim village to the west. The restaurants across from the archeological zone tend to be overpriced; for a good feed at reasonable prices, head up to the road towards Yenihisar.
