Icmeler Things to Do

  • Boat Trip

    There are two options for sailing in the wonderful little craft that sail from Ismeler. You can go to either Marmaris for 10 L or Turunc for 15 L return. Either trip is worthwhile, especially Turunc where you hug the high cliffs along the coast to Turunc. (Go any day of the week to Turunc - the Monday market that is highly promoted consists of 4...

  • Beach

    We did not actually go on the beach through our two week stay apart from walking along it at night when it was quiet. As the photo shows it is very crowded and the sun beds and canopies are very close together - the most densely used beach I have ever see. In central Icmeler you have to pay to use the beaches but this does give you access to...

  • Market

    rWednesdays in Icmeler they have their own market, which was bigger that we thought it would be. Same sort of goods as in the shops but all in one place for you to barter and compare. The fruit and vegetable market looked like competition area. The colours of the clothes, costume jewellery, trinkets, shoes, table wear in beautiful cotton, all at...

  • Marmaris

    When having a holiday in Marmaris, a good idea for having a break for the beach life is to go to see the cosy small and sweet town of Icmeler. It is also a holiday resort, but much smaller and with less services and e.g. restaurants/clubs and bars than Marmaris. This makes Icmeler an ideal place to come for even a whole holiday with kids or elderly...

    There is a large play area near the Prince Bar were children can play in a large bouncy castle or hire litte bikes and motorised cars.The area round here is very safe and children are supervised.Also dotted around the resort are other play areas with swings,roundabouts and slides.

  • Waterfall Restaurant

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    The ambience is superior to most of Icmeler. All the tables are outside, and some right by an attractive - if artificial - eponymous waterfall. Prices are above average. So is the food quality. The Indian food is excellent here, and it is no coincidence that the chef is Indian.

  • BEWARE OF THE YOUNG MALE TURKS

    First time I went to Turkey I was chatted up by a guy in the hotel as soon as I arrived at 3AM, I later found out they check the list of customers who are due to arrive and check their date of birth, whether they are travelling with a partner or another female and decide who is having who so to speak. One guy at the hotel took a 12 year old girl up...

    As much as I love the the country,I still find that when producing my bill I am often being overcharged for food or drinks that we havent had.I always advise people to check their bill to see if it matches with what they have had, even if it meens counting your drinks.A tourist is most vunerable on the first couple of days of their holiday untill...

Icmeler What to Pack

  • Currency 2 - note to Scots travellers

    Now - I have no idea why - but it is true that Scottish banknotes are 10% (sic) less valuable to the Turks than English ones, as reflected in the exchange rates offered in the town of Icmeler.Is Alex Salmond planning a devaluation after independence? I think we should be told.I hear - second hand and no primary reference - that the visa people at...

    more
  • Currency

    Take sterling. Your apartment, or many restaurants, hotels or corner shops, will give yo ua better exchange rate than you got at home. Our record was 8% better.I was surprised and pleased in this context that Garantia bank's ATM's will actually dispense sterling - and, amazingly, it looks as though there was no charge for this if I've read my...

  • Walk, for a change

    If you take a boat trip from Icmeler going away from Marmaris, you will be impressed with the craggy, foreboding cliffs and hills very close to the shore that are typical of all Aegean coastlines including many Greek islands.Who would have thought there is a way over them through the trees that cling tenaceously to the mountain?The walk is a bit...
