If you want to be able to wake up, stroll down to the beach, spend all day bathing in the sun and going for dips in the cool blue sea then you’re looking in the right direction. If you want to spend your evenings going for long strolls along the promenade, stopping in bars and delicious restaurants then keep this way. If you want to be spoilt with an exciting choice in activities, from boat rides to water sports, clubs and bars, restaurants, shops, and historical attractions then you’ll find yourself here, in Marmaris as it offers the best choice in the entire Dalaman region.
As one of Turkey’s most popular resorts, due to its size and diverse range of opportunities, many visitors chose to return year after year. With a truly Mediterranean environment of pine clad hills, rocky scenery and sunned beaches resting beside turquoise waters you’ll quickly lose yourself in this beautiful area.
The best thing about Marmaris is that it is suitable for people of all ages and interests. For families there is a range of water activities such as jet skiing, canoeing, pedal boats, parasailing, water skiing and banana boats. This would be a great way to let the kid’s release some of their energy, let teens have some fun with their friends or just bring out the adrenaline junky in you.
There are also many boat rides on offer, available to take you out on excursions and fun day trips to various places around the area. With the shuttle services operating between Marmaris and Icmeler, and the Dolmus’ (minibus) running throughout and onwards towards Turunc you will always have the opportunity to explore Turkey further.
Despite its bustling atmosphere, there is still much of old Marmaris to be realised through visiting places such as Marmaris Castle and the yacht marina. You could amble through the undisturbed cobbled streets here and feel the history of the place come to life.
If you chose to come to Marmaris it is not a decision you are likely to regret. Anything you could want in a traditional beach holiday you will find here, whether it be filled with lively activities or peaceful wanderings. The hospitable nature of the Turkish people will leave you feeling safe and transported from the life you have come from.
Those that love to shop needn’t fear as there is plenty of temptation in the form of the bazaar area, where hundreds of small shops offer many Turkish delights such as clothing, jewellery, fresh delicacies and handicrafts perfect as souvenirs. This will not only give your purse a work out, but also any bartering skills! There is also the small shopping centre that houses upmarket boutiques (and eateries for tired husbands/boyfriends). Most of these stay open late too, alongside the bars and clubs, so that there is as much exciting entertainment on offer at nightfall as there is in the daytime.
