Getting Here and Around

Buses from Çanakkale in the north and Ayvalık or İzmir in the south stop at Ayvacık, which is the closest (17 km/11 miles) town to Behramkale. From there, minibuses make the 20- to 30-minute trip to Behramkale about every hour for 4.5 TL, though less frequently out of high season. Make sure you get one that goes down to the port, if that's your final destination.

To take the minibus between the port and the village is a five-minute ride, costing 2 TL. The minibus also goes to Kadırga beach, a 15-minute ride, for 8 TL. If driving, as you approach, the road forks, with one route leading to the ancient, pretty village atop the hill and the other twisting precariously down to the tiny, charming harbor.
