October is racing month in Marmaris when the International Race Week kicks off. Just a 30 minute drive from Turunc, visitors can enjoy the biggest sailing event in the region down by the coast. Watch the yachts race along the waves for the opportunity to be crowned champion, or, if you fancy setting sail yourself you can hire a private yacht, where a team of qualified sailors will guide you around the crystal clear waters. There's lots of other great entertainment like dance performances and family friendly games along the sandy shores. When the sun goes down the coast comes alive with concerts playing late into the night.
