Hot summer days, turquoise-blue waters and delicious food at every turn – Marmaris is the perfect family holiday destination. Situated on the popular Turkish Riviera, Marmaris is a port town with a stunning mountainous backdrop and a host of attractions including museums, a waterpark and a generously sized beach to keep you entertained all holiday.



Beaches
Sitting on the Turquoise coast, Marmaris boasts approximately 3.5km of stunning coastline. The beach here is a mixture of sand and small pebbles with private sections of beach containing imported sand. Lined with restaurants and within walking distance of plenty of shops, Marmaris beach is very popular and often busy. The crystal-clear waters and colourful marine life make it the perfect place to explore the underwater world. Divers can often reach depths of 40m whilst snorkelling around the corals.

Food & Drink
The food in Marmaris is indicative of typical Turkish cuisine. With roots in the Ottoman Empire, Turkish cuisine also incorporates influences from other cuisines such as Persian, Middle Eastern, Mediterranean and Balkan. Small dishes known as meze are often eaten as starters with friends and include dishes such as dolma – stuffed grape leaves, hummous and Lountza – a dish of smoked pork loin. Main dishes are largely comprised of lamb or pork and, due to the proximity to the coast, fresh seafood. Aubergines and chickpeas are also very common here, meaning there is also a lot of choice for vegetarians.

Culture
As a friendly and largely family-oriented community, Turkish people often entertain and will put on meals or a large spread for their guests. It isn’t essential, but taking a gift such as baklava, goes down well with the hosts and shows respect. With the majority of the population praying five times a day, mosques are ubiquitous and usually architecturally stunning buildings. Marmaris is no exception to this with a number of mosques dotted throughout the city.

Nightlife
With a nightlife as varied and diverse as possible, Marmaris is melting pot of late night eateries, chic coastal bars and nightclubs open until sunrise. Two main areas dominate the Marmaris nightlife, Long Beach in the southern stretch and Bar Street located by the marina. Bar Street is a lively strip of loud music bars and bustling clubs, whereas Long Beach has a more relaxed vibe with cool late-night bars and live music.

Things To Do on Marmaris Holidays

Marmaris Castle
Marmaris Castle was originally built around 3000BC but was sadly destroyed not long after. In 1522 Ottoman Sultan Suleyman rebuilt this stunning building with a large amount still remaining to this day. In 1991 the castle was restored and part of it transformed into a museum. Made up of seven indoor areas, the Marmaris Castle and Museum houses a fantastic collection of artefacts and offers a unique insight into the past of this Turkish city.

Visit a Turkish bath
No trip to Turkey is complete without a visit to a Turkish bath. A perfect place to unwind, relax and be pampered. Enjoy a steam bath, body scrub and massages with foam and aromatherapy oils as you leave all your troubles behind and enjoy complete relaxation.

Day trip to Marmaris Turtle Beach & Dalyan mud baths
Most excursions will pick up from your hotel. Once on your way you will travel to the town of Dalyan where you can enjoy the natural mud baths and thermal hot springs that are said to leave you looking and feeling five years younger. From here a boat trip takes you past stunning ancient tombs built into the cliff side and to Iztuzu Beach where endangered loggerhead turtles lay their eggs.

Aqua Dream Waterpark
Sprawled across 44,000m2, the Aqua Dream Waterpark is splashtastic fun for all ages. With a number of slides ranging from the adrenaline-fuelled Kamikaze to racing down the Multi-slide, the Aqua Dream Waterpark has something to entertain everyone – and there’s even a top restaurant serving everything from seafood to kebabs.
