    Tropical temperatures on Marmaris Beach!

    by Monique_T Updated May 2, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    olu deniz - Blue Lagoon

    by Conflictrealms Written Apr 19, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you are staying at Marmaris, ask you hotel rep or someone like that about olu deniz, Blue Lagoon. It is the place i remember most about turkey, it was extremely beautiful. You had to go down a lot of mountain road to get there, which is quite a pleasant journey. Seeing all kinds Turkish forest. Once you are at olu deniz, (after about a 1 hour drive from marmaris), You'll first notice the long golden beach with clean blue water...However, continue up the small, non commercialed road. The beach will be on one side, and on the other side of the road is a small long forest wall. You'll end up around the other side of the trees, and find diamond sand, and clear water. It is a cove type place, surrounded by beautiful cliff/mountain. The cove is joined to the sea when the road curves round. There are a few local shops, tho they are not busy. And you can get a drink after relaxing in the water with schoals of fish swimming around you. There are many types of fish, they all swim around your feet, i recommend you take a snookal so you can see the beauty of it all. The water isnt deep either, it takes its time getting deeper and i'd say it goes no deeper then . You wont regret travelling the 1 hour ride to get to olu deniz.

    It is nice to walk around here, just to have a look at all the boats, also many big ones. There are many good restaurants overthere so try another one every evening. You will enjoy all the Turkish food.

    Bozburun was our last stop in our Marmaris Peninsula trip.
    It's a very nice small town.If you're searching for a quiet place with natural beauty,Bozburun is for you.
