Marmaris is a bustling resort and port city in Muğla Province, south west Turkey. A far cry from the sleepy fishing village it once was, Marmaris yet retains the charm of other Turkish holiday resorts as it’s tucked between pine-covered mountains and the small bays and inlets of the Datça Peninsula, which separates the Aegean and Mediterranean Seas.
One of the biggest attractions of Marmaris is the Netsel Marina, which is a state-of-the-art facility that draws yachting enthusiasts from all over the world who like to keep their vessels in the marina in winter. The resulting tourism has helped Marmaris develop some great restaurants, world-class shopping and exciting nightlife that complement very good beaches. The city is also a favoured departure point for cruises that regularly go up and down the Aegean and Mediterranean coasts.
Beyond the nightlife, fashion parade and glittering shops lie turquoise coves, mountainous territory, beautiful bays and ruins of ancient cities - all within the distance of a daily cruise, jeep safari or bus trip. Close to nearby resorts like Bodrum (102 miles) or Fethiye (81 miles) and Dalaman (74 miles), Marmaris has the distinction of being one of the biggest marina towns, attracting as many as 400,000 visitors during peak season and offering nightlife that rivals any other resort on the Turkish coast.
