Hi, sjk,

There's a beach (Pamucak) closer to Selcuk. You take the same minibus that goes to Ephesus, but stay on the bus and it'll stop outside the walkway that takes you into the beach. It was a beautiful sand beach (not the rocky ones that one sees often in other places) and was pretty empty when we went. We just bought some beer from the stand there (the food didn't look very appetizing) and sat at one of their tables with a shade umbrella and gazed out to sea. Very relaxing.

To get back, just walk out to the road again and wait for the bus. There will be a circling taxi once in awhile, but you don't have to take the taxi back, the minibus will do fine. I would advise, however, checking in Selcuk as to when the last bus returns because they don't run very late.

skj,

I'm late joining this thread, but here are my 2 cents. Don't plan to spend less than half a day at Ephesus. We spent the small additional fee to visit the terraced houses (down near the library). They were fantastic and worth the little extra money. If you said where you're staying in the area, I missed it. We stayed at the Hotel Bella in Selcuk which I highly recommend. They also took us and picked us up from Ephesus. I agree with Michael; spend an hour at the Ephesus museum in Selcuk. It's a little gem.

Whatever you do, don't cut your time in Cappadocia short. We spent 4 days there and it wasn't too long. There's a lot to see and do and it's so different from any other place on earth (that I know of, at least).

We took a day-long cruise on the Bosphorous up to the mouth of the Black Sea. It was one of the best days I've ever spent - absolutely beautiful. There are shorter cruises that don't go all the way up if you're concerned about time, and you can still get a feel for it.

Whatever you end up doing you'll have a wonderful time. Turkey is an amazing and welcoming country. Enjoy!

We used both Turkish Airlines and Atlas and both were excellent.
