Marmaris Holidays

Marmaris is set on the picturesque Turkish Mediterranean coastline in the province of Mugla. Now a thriving holiday destination, Marmaris was once a sleepy fishing village set on a natural harbour.

With Marmaris holidays you can expect lush landscapes fringed with white sandy beaches all not too far away from the bustling town centre, which comes complete with a bazaar, a vibrant nightlife and an eclectic mix of modern waterside architecture.

The marina is a good spot to rent a yacht, as well as to take a cruise to nearby Greece, and the bazaar is the place to head for a little souvenir shopping - you can pick up a variety of things there, from specialities like Turkish Delight and leather (remember to haggle!) through to branded fashions and DVD’s - though beware as the clothing is fake and the DVD’s more often than not don’t work.

Flights to Marmaris are not the easiest - as the closest airport is some 100 KM away in Dalaman - though you can easily get a coach transfer which takes around 1 1/2 hours, and once you’re in Marmaris, getting around is relatively easy as there are cheap minibuses and taxis serving the area.

Marmaris is especially popular with British tourists but the Mediterranean climate and lively surrounds are slowly beginning to entice Russian and other eastern European visitors.

Marmaris Weather

You’ll find that Marmaris enjoys sun for most months of the year, with July being the hottest month - with average temperatures of 25°C and highs of more than 30°C.

Once you’ve settled into your hotel and downed a cocktail or two at the bar - you should head to the beach. The coastline is located some 10 KM away from the town centre, though there are a number of hotel options on the shoreline, as well as around the harbour area - which is a good option, especially for those in search of a good base and a fantastic nighttime view of the harbour and the sea.

For the foodies you might be a little surprised that much of the food in Marmaris is based around the great British fish and chips and beer, though of course if you do want more traditional Turkish foods you won’t have too many problems finding it.

As a basic rule - food tends to be cheaper the further away you are from the harbour. If you aren’t happy with the city-side beaches then explore the more rugged coastlines a little further afield.

You’ll find a beautiful collection of azure tipped bays and pine covered mountainsides to explore - though it may be a good idea to rent a car to get out to places such as the Resadiye and Hisaronu Peninsulas. You can also take a yacht tour of the beaches and nearby attractions, such as the Cennet Adasi (or Paradise Island) peninsula.

On land there are plenty of things to do in Marmaris, such as the restored Marmaris castle, which offers astounding views of the region and the coast from its summit, and is also a good place to find out more about the region; history and so forth. There are jeep safari’s that take you far into the mountains and surrounding villages and a number of day trip options to Lycia, Dalyan Turtle Beach, Pamukkale and the Greek ruins of Ephesus, which are simply astounding.

If you like the waters but prefer to keep dry then head out of the harbour on a cruise, many of which which will take in ancient city ruins, coves and even caves.

There are a number of ferries and hydrofoils too - which are good for day trips to Rhodes, Greece. If you’re looking for lively nightlife on your Marmaris holidays - then you’re in luck as there are plenty of options.

Head to the busy Bar Street which is opposite the bazaar and you’ll be greeted by hundreds of late night revellers as well as a vast selection of bar and clubs - ranging from live rock to hard techno and everything in between - many of which stay lively throughout the night. If you do stay out all night - head to a cafe in the morning and grab a salty Ayran to help with the hangover.
