Magnificent Marmaris

Sandy beaches, a lively night scene and an abundance of great family-friendly attractions – Marmaris offers everything you need for a fantastic fun-packed holiday in the sun.

With a mountainside covered in beautiful pines and a striking coastline providing spectacular views, you’re in the ideal spot to take in the stunning perspectives on your holidays in Marmaris. Whether you want to sail the crystal-clear waters by yacht or settle yourself on the dark volcanic sands of Turkey’s beaches, you’ll find what you’re looking for on Marmaris holidays.

Beach Life

Marmaris is one of the busiest resorts on Turkey’s Turquoise Coast in the Dalaman Region and it no surprise that a large part of its appeal lies in its beaches. The long, narrow stretch of beach along the coast is mainly made up of volcanic sand and pebbles, adorned with sun loungers and providing an ideal spot for water sports. Here, you’ll find some great 5-star and luxury hotels situated along the front, perfect for staying close to the action on your Marmaris holidays.

If you’d rather set yourself away from the hype, there are many apartments further into town away from the buzz of the beach and the glare of the neon lights of vibrant nightclubs. With short walks to the main attractions, this is a great place to base yourself on your holidays.

After Dark

If you’d prefer to catch a glimpse of some of the great historical sites in Marmaris, pay a visit to Marmaris Castle. With courtyards abundant in bloom and splendid panoramic from the top, this is a must-visit for history buffs – make sure you dip into the museum for a bit of background history.

In the shadow of the castle is a great daily market selling a wealth of Turkish souvenirs. Here, you’ll find sweet spices, locally made shawls and handcrafted jewellery. If you’re looking for something a little more contemporary, head to Thursday’s market at G Mustafa Mugali Caddesi – it is especially popular for clubbing wear and faux-designer clothing.

Adventure-seekers definitely won’t feel out of their depth on their in Mamaris. Instead, head to the main beach where you’ll find a full list of water sports- whether you’re looking to sail along in banana boats or hop on a jet-ski for a fun-fuelled adrenaline ride. If you’d rather relax and recharge on your trip onto the sea, climb aboard a laid-back boat or yacht cruise while keeping your eyes peeled for quieter beach spots along the coastline like Icmeler and Turuncand the Greek Island of [Rhodes](.

Holidays to Marmaris are famed for their lively night scene. For a traditional night out, head to some of the resort’s restaurants, where you’ll be greeted with themed nights showcasing belly dancing and local folk music – with some even laying on some lessons. Once you’ve experienced a glimpse into Turkish culture, head to Bar Street for neon lights, loud and proud bars and clubs that stay open until sunset.

Climate

Marmaris boasts an outstanding climate, for anybody looking to enjoy an idyllic beach holiday. It can get very hot during the peak months of July and August, which is also when most of the crowds arrive. However, visit in the Spring or Autumn, and you can still enjoy pleasant beach weather along with a little more peace and quiet!

Sunbathing

Hoping to work on your tan a little? There are great provisions for sunbathing down at the beach, with fine golden sand in addition to a great range of deck chairs and sun beds. You’ll even be able to pick up a cocktail from one of the many beachside bars, to enjoy as you bask in the golden rays!

Quiet Spots

Those hoping to enjoy a little rest and relaxation down at the beach won’t find it hard to escape the busy crowds – the long stretch of coastline here offers numerous discrete coves and inlets, so you need only take a short stroll along the beach, in order to find a private spot for swimming and sunbathing.

Boat Trips

One popular way to spend the time, is to taking a boat trip out from the harbour. There are numerous companies who run pleasure boat cruises from here – some lasting a weekend, others just long enough to enjoy a traditional Turkish meal and some live music!
