Marmaris holidays are all about hanging out on sunbeds during the day and swinging by the bars for some live music at night. Set on Turkey's turquoise coast, Marmaris' large and lively resort has plenty to offer in terms of entertainment, from its charming waterfront restaurants and harbour to its golden beaches and brilliant bars. Marmaris is great for clubbing, with the popular Bar Street buzzing with nightclubs, besides dance clubs right on the beach.
It's also a great base which is close to other picturesque resorts, making it perfect for day trips. To reach Marmaris, drive down from Dalaman International airport, the nearest to the resort. Enjoy a day in pretty Fethiye, shop in the local markets for shawls, pashminas and handbags and visit quiet harbours and hilltop towns. There’s lots of things to see and do in Marmaris and activity hunters can head into the mountains, go rafting along the rivers or hit the beach for watersports and diving lessons.
Holidays in Marmaris have been popular for decades thanks to its sunny climate, long summers, sweeping beaches and family-friendly activities, making it a great resort for visitors of all ages. Take a walk along the picturesque marina until you reach Icmeler beach, enjoy a day out on the water on a traditional gulet cruise, snorkel in turquoise bays, treat yourself to a traditional Turkish bath or enjoy a day trip to one of the neighbouring Greek Islands. This is a big resort packed with character and sun-soaked holiday vibes.
