Holidays in Marmaris

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.

10°C to 28 °C

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.

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.

If you’re looking for a day out with the family, you’ll find two aquatic-themed fun parks within easy reach. The Aqua Dream Water Park is the largest here and offers thrills and spills, in abundance! Older children and adults who still haven’t fully grown up can pit their nerves against rides with clues in their names, such as the Kamikaze, the Tunnel Free Fall and the Black Hole. Younger visitors will enjoy more laid-back activities, such as the Wave Pool or the dedicated children’s pool. 
Alternatively, head to the Atlantis Water Park, where, alongside a variety of slides, flumes, and tubes, you’ll find other things to do such as mini-golf and bowling. This waterpark has its own private beach and a bar to keep frazzled parents refreshed.

Looking over the resort, Marmaris Castle is thought to have been constructed around 1044BC. Having housed Suleyman the Magnificent and acted as home to his military, it received a devastating blow from the French in the First World War. Since then, it has been painstakingly restored and returned to its former, impressive glory. Today, visitors can explore the seven indoor areas and learn about everything from local archaeology to art. There are some superb relics from the past, including Roman amphoras, Byzantium pottery and weapons from the Ottoman Empire. A treat for history-buffs, Marmaris Castle is exciting and informative.

Marmaris is best for…

Night-owls: If you’re looking for world-class parties, head for ‘Bar Street’ in the centre of town. Here, you’ll find bars and clubs, offering everything from dress-code evenings to foam parties and live music. Bars open late in the evening and stay open until early in the morning.

Diving: Marmaris holidays Turkey are set where the Mediterranean meets the Aegean Sea, creating outstanding conditions for snorkelling and scuba-diving. Explore colourful coral reefs and get up, close and personal with shoals of shimmering fish in clear blue waters.

Families: Beyond the beautiful beach, there are plenty of days out for those travelling with children. Enjoy the watery rides and slides at the Atlantis Waterpark or head to the town centre by night and enjoy a family dinner, while watching the colourful dancing fountains.
