Things to do
Top Marmaris Hotels
Marmaris is pretty much permanently warm. Even winter days rarely go below 10° Celsius, and the height of summer sees the thermometer shoot above 30° Celsius. The water temperature is conducive to swimming in the light blue sea, and from May to October you're guaranteed no rain - so pack your Factor 30! One thing's for sure: if it's sun, sea and sand you want, Marmaris holidays are just the ticket.
Not for nothing do the Turks call this place Green Marmaris. From cypress to pines, this is one of the most pleasantly verdant beaches on the coastline, and the clash of greens with the light blue sea will have you reaching for your easel! There are quiet beaches only a couple of miles away at Icmeler and Bosburun, and for a truly breathtaking sunset panorama, hike up the mountainside forests - you won't be disappointed by the scenery on Marmaris holidays!
Things To Do on Marmaris Holidays
No Marmaris holiday would be complete without a spot of yachting - this is the cruise capital of Turkey, so be sure to get on board a yacht or ferry for some music and mirth on the Med. Talking of cruises, you're only one hour from Rhodes here too, so it's the perfect opportunity to taste a slice of Greek culture.
That said, there's enough culture here to keep even the most fastidious tourist happy: day trips to the ancient Roman city of Ephesus, jeep safaris into the surrounding woodland and trips to the archaic white castle, home to Marmaris Museum with its seven galleries and Ottoman artefacts.
One of the many local delights on offer here is the world-famous Hammam, or Turkish mud bath, said to soothe all your aches and pains, and even cure headaches! If it's your first time in Marmaris, be sure to go on a Turkish Night with accompanying ìmezes', dishes of shish kebab and fresh seafood. To walk it off, you might consider a visit to the local market in the old town, where surrounded by fine silks, jewels and carpets, you can haggle the day away!
