MARMARIS... Turkey's most sophisticated and multi-faceted resort.


Marmaris has one of the biggest Marinas in Turkey, Marmaris is the "head quarter" for all sailing, yacht charter and gulet (gullet) in Turkey.

Marmaris is one of Turkey's premier vacation resorts, built around a sweeping natural bay at the foot of steep pine covered mountain slopes. The old town is a maze of twisting little streets and alleys with whitewashed houses in the Turkish style amid an excellent shopping bazaar. The resort is ideal for water sports, sailing, relaxing in the sun, or strolling along the palm lined "Riviera" style promenade, or why not visit one of the numerous nightspots or restaurants of the town! We could write a book about the reasons why you should go to Marmaris, and recommend it to you without reservation. In the first place; whether you're wining and dining, quenching your thirst in a restaurant, or haggling for souvenirs; the value for money is incredible, especially with the exchange rate so favorable. Then there is the people, a more charming and friendly bunch than any you will meet elsewhere, and well known for their hospitality.

Marmaris is perhaps the most European of the Turkish resorts, although a venture into the maze of narrow streets which make up the Old Quarter soon reveals a very Turkish atmosphere. Old men sit in the shade playing backgammon just yards from the more sophisticated bars of the seafront, the market area is thronged with local life. One look at the yachts in the harbor will tell you that Marmaris is a stylish and cosmopolitan resort. The coastline here, where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean, is perfect cruising country, dark blue seas giving way to shallow turquoise waters on hideaway beaches, while the mountains march inland. It's a dramatic backdrop for any holiday and offers something for everyone and all 'mod cons' while retaining much of its charm.

Sandwiching the Old Quarter are to one side Netsel Marina, home to smart quayside restaurants, an open-air amphitheater cinema, and a marina housing majestic yachts. To the other side is the newer district of the resort where many of the featured properties are situated.
Marmaris is lively and bustles well into the small hours with bars and smart discos.

Yachts and boats decorate the coast of this lovely tourist center where thousands converge to enjoy a fun-filled, self-indulgent holiday. Those who surf and water ski will thrill at the possibilities in Marmaris. Energetic entertainment at a lively bar, or dancing until dawn at a sophisticated discotheque can end an ideal day.

There are many good buys in Marmaris boutiques, colorful bazaars and markets. You can find excellent leather and suede goods, copper and brassware, jewellery, and objects carved of onyx. Turkish carpets, textiles and embroidery make good handcrafted souvenirs, and the locally produced pine scented honey called "cam bali" is superb.

The Marmaris Netsel Marina, one of the largest and best-equipped marinas in Turkey, and the Marmaris Albatross Marina, one of the best for wintering and maintaining yachts, make Marmaris an excellent starting point for the Blue Voyage tour of the Aegean Coast.
