Marmaris, Turkey

Marmaris, Turkey-port

Lord Nelson readied his fleets from this Mediterranean bay in 1798 before heading out to defeat the French in the Battle of Abukir. But since then, the serene harbor has remained much quieter. Set against a backdrop of pine clad hills, Marmaris is a resort that combines natural beauty with an astounding zest for life. Scenic roads, quaint villages and unspoiled beaches make Marmaris one of the most popular resorts in Turkey.

    Explore the picturesque bays and charming villages along the Turkish Riviera during this panoramic tour of Marmaris and its splendid surroundings. Marmaris was a peaceful fishing village less than 20 years ago, but today, this Turkish Riviera town offers a true vacation atmosphere.

    Departing the pier, you will first drive to Armutalan and then on to the village of Orhaniye. Always popular with yachters, it has been described as one of the prettiest bays in the Mediterranean. This typical fishing village offers a scenic setting of deep blue sea, tall green mountains and fishing boats jostling amongst the yachts. A few hotels, restaurants, traditional market shops and colorful cafés dot the waterfront area, adding to the ambience.

    Next, reboard your coach and proceed past the long sand bar at Kizkumu Beach en route to Bayir. One of the area's biggest villages, Bayir is known for its industrious people and the massive, 2,000-year-old plane tree found in the village square. During your visit in Bayir, you will be treated to a refreshment at one of the local cafés.

    From the town of Bayir, your tour continues on to the very green and cozy atmosphere of Icmeler. This resort area that is located at the western end of Marmaris bay, attracts many tourists looking for a truly relaxing holiday. Icmeler is named for its famous springs whose water was said to be good for the digestive system. Today, five star hotels line its noted beach, while the older residential area nestles under the hills at the back of the town. Every morning there is a flow of people from Marmaris to Icmeler, drawn by the fine beaches and modern discos attract a similar flow every evening. After passing through Icmeler, a brief photo stop is made at Pamucak, which overlooks the Icmeler area, before returning to the pier.

    Please note: This tour includes a minimal amount of moderate walking. The tour is not available to wheelchair guests and those with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of stamina and ability. Weather appropriate clothing, comfortable walking shoes, hat and sunglasses are recommended. The order of the sites viewed or visited may vary.
