Local transport is excellent
With a public transport system available that puts ours to shame, a car is not essential although it helps for travelling further afield.
Accessibilty is provided by local council run Dolmus (Public Mini Bus service) which runs every 8 mins into Marmaris Centre for a standard price of 1 lira (approx 40pence). The Dolmus’s are colour coded, purple coloured for Beldibi, Green for Icmeler. Taxi service into Marmaris is 15/20 lira.
What to do and see
Marmaris nightlife is tremendous, whether you want to shop in the bazaars or the many classy shopping centres such as the Solaris, the Marina shopping complex or the Gima, have a romantic meal in one of the high class restaurants off the marina looking across the bay at the castle, walking along the lively western promenade, full of bars and restaurants, near the Gima shopping centre or assaulting your senses in “Bar Street” where the name is what it suggests but don’t say we didn’t warn you.
Icmeler can be reached by water Taxi or Dolmus from the main Marmaris Atataturk Square. This is close to the Tansas Supermarket, good for buying all your food supplies and the Burger King which can keep the kids happy with beef burgers exactly like those in England.
There are 3 markets per week, Marmaris market is on Thursdays, Icmeler is Wednesdays and Bedibi market Sundays. Barter for great local produce with farmers who depend on these markets for their livelihood. Also great leather bags, clothes and teeshirts.
Don’t miss the Talk of the coast show which whilst being a costly evening is well worth it. The show includes a meal and one drink, the expensive part being the rest of the drinks before, during and after. (hic)
For a really chill out cheap day book the 5 bays boat tour which will take you to various bays and allow you to go swimming and diving off the boat at various points throughout the day. The price is approx £10.00 each, although barter to get the price down. Make sure they include all food and drink including cola, beer and water for the day in this price. Ice cream is extra.
Another great but longer boat ride is the trip to Dalyan where you will be moved to smaller boats and taken down a reed filled river past 4000 year old Lycean tombs cut into the mountainside. Finally ending up at the hot mud baths and Springs where you can get covered in mud and swim in hot natural springs. Afterwards you can spend a few hours sunbathing on turtle beach before taking the boat back to Marmaris. A tiring but great day.
Another great day out for the family is the Jeep Safari, be prepared to get wet and make sure you take as many water pistols as you can carry, “He who has the biggest water pistol stays the driest”. Recommended weapon – police water canon.
A family day out Scuba diving should also not be missed.
Catch the Catamaran to Rhodes town, 45 mins will get you to the beautiful walled city.
Ephesus is the best-preserved classical city on the Mediterranean,and perhaps the best place in the world to get the feeling for what life was like in Roman times.
Pamukkale is one of the most extraordinary natural wonders in Turkey. From a distance this whitish mass stands in evident contrast with the color of the surrounding uplands and brings to mind enormous stretches of cotton. On approaching this incredible succession of terraces, one discovers the existence of basins full of mineral water which flow into other natural basins below, and are the source of stupendous mineral conglomerations in the form of fantastic stalactites, sometimes of considerable size gild resembling organ pipes.
All bedrooms fully air conditioned as is living area. Most bedrooms with private balconies.
Furnished to a high standard.
