Things to do on holiday in Marmaris
An exciting way to explore the surrounding countryside of Marmaris is by Jeep. There are a number of tours and safaris available to see some of the unspoilt scenery hidden away from the main tourist resort. After a day on the beach or discovering the Marmaris Castle, relax in a traditional Turkish bath and get pampered head to toe.
Mamaris Beach is one long stretch of sand with amazing views of the mountains that surround the city. It is a really popular place for diving and sailing, for those feeling particularly extravagant you can even hire your own private yacht with crew on board to cook your dinner! If you want to keep your feet in the sand then barbeque beach parties run throughout the week and are a great chance to meet some fellow holidaymakers.
The amazing island of Rhodes is only a half hour trip away with ferries running regularly from Marmaris. This is the perfect opportunity to spend a day in one of the most interesting Greek islands with some fascinating historical sites to admire. If you want to stay put in Turkey then Caunos is another exciting place to visit, ruins of the whole city are free to explore and up the river there are mud baths – great for your skin and loads of fun too.
Even the fussiest eaters won’t have any problem getting food while on holiday in Marmaris. There’s a great mix of smaller local Turkish restaurants with every international cuisine you can imagine. If you’re staying local then expect to find lots of mezes, salads, lamb and kebabs – but not the type you’d usually stumble across in the early hours of the morning in England.
A holiday to Mamaris offers a busy and varied nightlife with everything from drag shows to karaoke. There are bars and clubs open til 4am but if you’re still not danced out, the after party continues on boat until sunrise. For the romantics Marmaris runs moonlight cruises so you can drink and dance under the stars. Families can enjoy the Turkish Night shows with belly dancing, folkdance and some good old-fashioned audience participation.
