  • Boat Trip

    Icmeler Things to Do

    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

    Icmeler Things to Do

    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...

  • Lycian Tombs

    Fethiye Things to Do

    One reason why I came to Fethiye is to see the rock-cut tombs on the side of the mountain in Fethiye - the Tomb of Amyntas. On my second day, I roam around the town looking for these tombs, passing by several historical stuff before finally reaching the place - on foot. It's located right at the large mountain at the edge of the town. There are I...

  • Gumbet

    Bodrum Things to Do

    The beach at Gumbet is a great escape from the frenzy of Bodrum Town and is only a short taxi ride (or Dolmus if you like) away. The beach is of a good quality and has a range of watersports and activities available. Many of the sun loungers are available but at a small cost (about 5YTL) but this is for the whole day. If you do not wish to...

  • Marmaris

    Icmeler Things to Do

    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...

    Last year I missed the boat tour to Butterfly Valley, my hotel in Fethiye that time told me it left already when I woke up late and trying to book it by phone.

  • Turkish Baths - Hamam

    Marmaris Things to Do

    Complaining from body pains, long lasting headaches, giving up excess body-weight, desire for feeling fresh and young addresses you to a "Hamam" where you feel like a new-born person. If you're after the perfect tan, one of the best ways to start it off is with a trip to the traditional Turkish bath (known as a 'Hamam'). Once you go inside, you...

    One of the best place for paragliding is in Oludeniz -- with it's panoramic views of the ocean and the Babadag mountains. It's one of the most popular things to do in this village resort. You'll find those colourful paraglides dominating the beach sky in Oludeniz. Tandem paragliding costs from GBP 70 to 100 per person, I think it depends on your...

    Marmaris Things to Do

    Just wanted to make a note that in Turkey all those beaches where I have been have been well maintained, clean, tidy and comfortable, cosy. No active "sales persons" for some reason. Perhaps they are not let to enter the beaches by the people who "own" each part of the beach (at least rent the sunbeds). I enjoyed the beach in Marmaris very much....

  • Saklikent

    Fethiye Things to Do

    Saklikent is a gorge about 3/4 hours drive from Fethiye. There is a boardwalk up the gorge for a bit and in the non rainy season you can walk further. In the rainy season it is too dangerous due to the water volume. It's worth a visit, wonderful scenery. There are the usual trinket sellers and restaurants there.

    I was picked up at 8.45am and taken to the Marmaris pier for my Day Tour. To my surprise, the Boat was huge, not the size that I had expected.

Upstairs, there was sunlounges and cushions to lay on, inside, Tables, Lounges & dance area and food bar. 1st stop was at a cove where if you...

    Fethiye Things to Do

    Most years people are maimed or killed on these safaris. We don't hear about it in Britain because the papers only publicise the British interest stories. It happened to my family two years ago and it has just happened again this Summer. My advice is to avoid them unless you enjoy that 'I may not return' element to holidays. Justin

Some in really intact and good condition but some already fallen apart, walk around the town, you'll definitely spot several...
