The bay shines with the turquoise colour of the sea, and the largest marina in Turkey impresses with panache. The ideal location, close to many tourist attractions, makes the programme of educational trips here extremely interesting. Among others, you can go to Pamukkale, Ephesus, Dalyan or even the Greek island of Rhodes, which is only 45 min away from Marmaris by boat! You can also explore Marmaris itself, which history dates back to the 4th century B.C. Marmaris is the second largest after Bodrum entertainment centre in Turkey. There are many discos, bars, pubs and restaurants. The city, sleepy and lazy during the day, awakens at night, teeming with music and a wonderful holiday atmosphere.
Approx. 8 km from the centre of Marmaris, on the other side of the bay, is Icmeler. This is the most luxurious district, where the hotels are definitely of a better class than in Marmaris. The destination also offers a much prettier, sandy beach. There is a centre with shops, bars and restaurants, but the town itself is a lot quieter than Marmaris and is ideally suited for families with children. For those looking to spend the day in peace, on a gorgeous beach, and in the evening, enjoy the nightlife, Icmeler offers convenient transport via local mini-buses to the entertainment centre of Marmaris (in high season they run every 15 min).
Turunc - which in Turkish means "Citrus", is a small, very charmingly situated tourist destination, approx. 12 km from Icmeler and 20 km from the centre of Marmaris. A former fishing village, surrounded by green hills, with a pretty beach over 1.5 km long, it is ideal to relax in peace and quiet, away from the hustle and bustle of big cities. An advantage of this place is also the easy transport to Marmaris, which takes place via local mini-buses or boats that in high season run every hour from Turunc port to Marmaris (duration of the cruise approx. 40 minutes). Turunc drowns in green, and the bay shimmers with thousands of colours of crystal clear waters, abundant in fish and seafood, thanks to which there are many restaurants here that serve excellent fish dishes.

It's all so delightful that it's hard to say which of the monuments will make a bigger impression: the agora with countless columns, the Temple of Hadrian, or Arcadia Road leading to the port observed from the highest steps of the great theatre. The programme also includes Panaya Kapulu - a chapel house from the 6th century, built in the place where the Virgin Mary is said to have spent the last years of her life.
