Situated on the southwest of Turkey’s Turquoise Coast, the beach resort of Marmaris is one of the region’s most sophisticated. It combines a pumping nightlife with an historic Old Town area where winding streets and captivating architecture offer endless inspiration.
It’s long, sprawling, pebble beach stretches along the coast, dotted with sun loungers where you can soak up the Mediterranean sun or participate in water sports activities that will keep adrenaline seekers occupied. It is flanked by a palm-fringed promenade where countless bars and cafes allow you to relax, wine and dine with the crystal clear waters just steps away.
Marmaris’ location on the Turkish Riviera makes it the perfect base for excursions into the spectacular surrounding countryside. Explore the nearby ancient ruins of Caunos and Knidos which are draped in history, or embark on an off-road jeep safari through small traditional villages to the authentic Turkish town of Mugla. It’s also possible to visit the stunning travertine pools of Pamukkale on a day trip from Marmaris or go on an adventurous white water rafting trip along the Dalaman River.
You can’t visit Marmaris without taking a cruise to explore its hidden coves, beaches and offshore islands. Visit beautiful Paradise Island and the coastal towns of Turunç and Icmeler, or venture further to explore the UNESCO World Heritage listed citadel of Rhodes, just across the border in Greece. With so much on offer, it’s no wonder Marmaris is one of the Turkish Riviera’s most popular beach resorts.
Spend your days swimming, island hopping and visiting ancient ruins, then party until the early morning hours at Marmaris’ endless choice of bars and nightclubs. There are also plenty of excellent restaurants in Marmaris where you can sample traditional Turkish cuisine, as well as western favorites. With a warm, Mediterranean climate, Marmaris can be pleasant year round, but it’s in the height of the sizzling summer that it really transforms into one of Turkey’s premier party destinations.
