Marmaris, Turkey overview

The once quaint fishing village of Marmaris has in recent years become a busy holiday resort. It is now the "in" place for Turkey's rich and famous, who are followed in their choice of holiday places by the hoi polloi. Why Turkey's movie stars and magnates choose Marmaris is something of a mystery. It is not as cosmopolitan as Kusadasi, nor does it have impressive ruins. Perhaps it has something to do with the yachting trade, as Marmaris has a fine marina in its center and is one of Turkey's busiest yacht chartering ports.

9 Marmaris, Turkey Port Reviews

by SuzannW

I was disappointed in the Turkish bath (which was one of the excursions we most looked forward to) because it was rushed. We watched one man get a wonderful, lengthy massage, but when we were called up it was very short and unmemorable.
