If you’re looking for a break in a holiday destination that has a vibrant nightlife, beautiful beaches and enjoys the reputation of being something of a Mediterranean paradise, then holidays in Marmaris are for you!
This buzzing port city is surrounded by olive groves and perfumed by pine forests, giving it a distinctly Turkish feel. To see how the other half live, take a stroll along the Netsel Marina and admire the million-pound yachts that bob in their moorings. Alternatively, get your haggling head on and flex your bargain-hunting muscles in the local bazaar! Those travelling with little ones will appreciate the family-friendly beaches and the more-adventurous might enjoy snorkelling in the caves that pit the coast.
An ideal destination for sun-seekers with two main beaches: Marmaris Urban Beach and Marmaris Long Beach. The Urban Beach is the busiest of the two, offering a spectacular sweep of golden sand and calm, warm waters. The Long Beach might be less well known, but it’s just as popular and backed by convenient cafés, bustling bars and some remarkable restaurants. However, beyond the beaches, you’ll find plenty of things to do in this slice of paradise.
Enjoy a warm, Mediterranean climate, with cool winters and hot summers here. For the best tan-topping-up weather, book your break between June and September, when the temperatures hover in the mid-20s, peaking at around 28°C.
Flights here land at Dalaman International Airport, which is roughly an hour and 20 minutes’ drive from the centre of the resort.
