Marmaris is probably the oldest of the Turkish holiday resorts and a long time favorite of northern Europeans escaping to the sun. It is located in the protection of a vast bay that resembles an inland sea. The pine tree clad hills behind the town give rise to a scented local honey called ‘cambali’ and where, in season, the aroma of frankincense fills the air.
Marmaris has grown into a substantial town with a year round social and commercial life but, at the same time, it has not lost any of its old world charm or easy access to un spoilt natural countryside.
Guarded by a 16th century castle the Netsel Marina is a safe haven for yachting enthusiasts and a departure point for gulet cruises. The narrow streets of the old town, in the shadow of the castle, are home to the bazaar and boast dozens of restaurants and night clubs.
There are plenty of bars and clubs in this area to keep young people entertained until the early hours of the morning.
Marmaris beach has a number of water sports activities available to visitors from boats for hire to jet skis. There is also SCUBA diving in Marmaris and visitors can go on 1 day trips to see if they like it.
Sweeping away from the old town is a long curving sea front and beach lined with hotels, restaurants, shops and cafes – everything necessary for sun bathing, swimming, water sports and a great holiday.
Transfer times from Dalaman airport to Marmaris are approximately 2 hours; from Bodrum airport to the north they are approximately 1 and ½ hours.
The local property market is influenced by the long term popularity of the resort as well as from local demand based on the prosperity and commercial life of the town. This means that property prices can be higher than in the ‘newer’ resorts to the north, but all things are relative.
