Boat Trip, Marmaris
There are many beautiful islands and places to visit around Marmaris.
Rhodes Island in Greece is very close and we even booked a day trip to a local tourism agency. It was supposed to pass with a high speed boat in the morning and return on the evening. The price was USD 30-/person.
Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip because we didn't know that as we entered Turkey by car we were also supposed to take the car to Rhodes and pass with the ferry not with the high speed boat.
Everyone goes on the dalyan/turtle beach trip which is great but i found a place while on the internet called cleopatra beach which i had to visit for myself and it was well worth it.
This is a very lazy day with plenty of swims and also a very nice beach. It is also a protected area so it is virtually unspoilt. The sand is like white powder and the sea is one of the best i have seen. It is only small but it is as good as the pictures i have uploaded.
On either side of the beach are guards to make sure that you leave all shoes towels etc away from the sand, and it is important that you wash when you come off. There are sun loungers provided free off the beach.
Not far from the beach are some ancient ruins of an ampitheatre . It is said that Cleopatra had the sand imported from Egypt and it is like fine golden powder.
The trip consists of a coach which takes you to a boat which takes you there with a few swim stops on the way. food was included. It is one of the best i have seen in turkey!
If you like a nice relaxing day to top up your tan this is the one.
Big or small, hundreds of boats depart from the main dock in the shopping area and at different points in Marmaris.(included Knidos and Palamut on the west ) They organize daily tours to the islands and bays nearby. The Paradise Island (Nimara) opposite to Marmaris, Turunç, Kumlubük, Çiftlik, and Phosphorus Cave are the most popular destinations for daily tours. Some of the tours go over to Dalyan Iztuzu shore. These tours offer entertainment, drinks and the pleasure of swimming at night.Its a good idea to try it )))

Take a break on a gulet. There are 3, 5 or 7 day trips available.
Gulets are fishing boats refitted as tourist boats for short, shore-hugging trips.
The top decks are lined with mattresses for sun-bathing. In hot weather people often sleep on deck rather than in a stuffy cabin.
They sail from one inlet or bay to another to permit swimming off the side of the boat.
Some are dedicated party boats. Others for people that prefer quiet and the sound of the sea.
The bays where the [more staid] boats stop to swim are quiet, with warm quiet water.
The party boats tend to gather together in other bays and the music is loud all night.
Snorkeling is also usually available.
Enjoy the sun with the sea-breeze while resting on the deck.
If it get's too hot, the boat stops to take a dive into the deep blue sea.
Nice panoramic views from the boat
And...a nice barbecue!! price €20-€30
See travelogues for more great pictures!
You can book boat trips at the beach, by some of the many street vendors who sell excursions and at your hotel. We reserved the boat trip through one of the street vendors and pais 20 Turkish Lira. I guess the advantage by doing so is that you can bargain and since most street vendors are working together around the city you will end up on a bigger boat with a larger mixture of people (both Turks and tourists). The trip usually lasts from 09.30 until 17:00 and you will see some caves, be able to feed the fish and swim in the sea as the boat stops several times. The scenery is quite nice. Lunch is served on the boat (included in the price) along with drinks (not included in the price). A bit exhausting, even if you do not do much, but well worth the time and the money.
they used to do this every wed they take u out to sea show u all different waters n things u get ur lunch ther which is very nice and the beer is FREE all 4 £12 lira 1 of the best day outs we had on our hol n u defo get the best tan being near water

Full day in the turquoise transparent water… amazing and magical. We visited an Island known for its competitive souk rates and we had two stops in the middle of the sea for those who would like to swim. Lunch on board. This tour is highly recommended
İf is it your 1st time in Turkey or if you have been before too , when you arrive to marmaris you have to do try turkısh bath all time.I really recommend you turkısh bath in the beginning of your holiday.
