I've done it by car & caught the ferry to Chios, I would imagine a coach/bus to Izmir & then one out to Cesme. Customs at both ports.
Nice little Island when I was last there, not sure what the situ is now because they have had an influx of refugees.
Some nice shops, hotels & restaurants there, plus ferries that take you to mainland Greece.

Re: Altinkum to eşme

You need to get a bus to Izmir otogar and then change for the Cesme bus. Before you get on the Cesme bus you need to check with the man who is standing by it to make sure there are seats available. You don't need a ticket as you pay on the bus. Some one will come round once the bus gets underway for the money.

The bus is white with Cesme written down the side.

The catamaran leave at 9 am and takes about 20 mins. It's about a 10 to 15 minute to walk from the town to the port.

Re: Altinkum to eşme

Yes, Datca to Izmir with Pammukale at 11:00, then small bus to Cesme. You'll be in Izmir around 5:00pm, not sure if that's in time to catch the last ferry to Chios? Otherwise, you'll need to go to Marmaris for an earlier bus, I think Pammukale have one every hour.

Re: Altinkum to eşme

There's a real nice hotel just as you get into Cesme, very Europeanish, done a night there, not cheap but more than catered for our creature comforts.

When we done the first crossing the sea was rough & I mean rough, most ferries were cancelled but some old sea dog was up for going. We didn't know any of this till we got beyond the sea wall & out into open sea. The ferry only took two cars (tug boat), I should've smelt a rat when I saw the sailors lashing the cars to the deck. Turns out we were on the edge of a storm & ferries in & out of Chios were cancelled for the next couple of days.............its a full page on my CV now.

When you arrive in Altinkum dolmus station, ask if there's a local service to Cesme, you might be lucky!!!
