Site Shuttle Bus

The onsite Shuttle Bus regularly (multiple times a day) drives a fixed route starting from outside the next door complex, The Four Seasons. The relevant Shuttle Bus times are published on the entrance doors to every apartment block.

In general the bus drives 1) Kumköy, 2) Side, 3) Manavgat (only on market Monday, only selected times), 4) Migros Supermarket and 5) returns to the Four Seasons.

Taxis, can be requested and phone numbers are located at the entrance to the complex. They will arrive at your front door and take you to your desired destination.

Dolmus (minibus carrying approx. 20 persons)

Dolmus’s are a cheaper mode of transport but unfortunately don’t pass by your front door, they are however very easily accessible.

In general Dolmus Services cover a wide network of destinations and they display their final destinations on the front windscreen. Please check with the driver if you are not clear of the final destination.

In town they have designated stops but as a rule you can hail them to stop at anywhere on their route.

Dolmus is a fun way to travel with the locals and the fare is very cheap compared to Taxi’s, be prepared however at times to travel in quite crowded conditions.
