A small inlet to the east,this small bay is great for a day out of town.There are only a couple of restaurants,we visited the Rose Mary and had a lovely local stew and i won't tell you what the surprise ingredient was.I would guess it's around 1-1.5 hours but could be a bit less,we lost our way!!!
Tropical temperatures on Marmaris Beach!
One thing I really love about Turkey is the good weather. I can only remember one time we had a bit of rain but that was not in Marmaris. The beach from Marmaris is really nice. You can rent a sunbed there, that is the way to relax! And it is not very expensive (at least it wasn't at that time). There are also many nice pubs and places where you can have lunch or something to drink.
The sea is clear and good for a swim.
""MARMARIS" the Pearl of Turkish Riviera"
Marmaris is an important tourism centre, boasting its world-class marina, clean beaches, the Gunnuk woods around it, the famous Yalanci Strait and Nimara, the natural wonder of an island in the Marmaris bay.
Icmeler and Armutalan are two holiday villages are waiting for tourists to populate their beaches. It is a major stop on the route of the Blue Voyage. It is shopping centres are a good opportunity for Blue Voyagers to buy all their needs.
Apart from countless restaurants and bars, there is a castle built on a rocky elevated area near the market a little museum inside it.
The Castle was built by Suleyman the Magnificent for his Rhodes campaign. There is a story among the locals that the name of the town comes from this event. The story goes that when Suleyman the Magnificent came to visit the Castle, but did not find it worthy of his glory, he ordered the architect to be hanged, saying "mimari as" (hang the architect) which later became Marmaris.
