Overview of Icmeler

Icmeler captures the laidback lifestyle of the Turkish Riviera with its beautiful shores, water sports and stunning scenery. The curved bay is lined with swaying palms and eucalyptus trees, and surrounded by pine-forested mountains for picture perfect views. A canal runs through the main resort and there’s a traditional old village here, too. Take your time and mix with the locals as you explore the many restaurants serving up authentic cuisine. If you want to liven it up a little, head to the open-air clubs and music venues of busy resort Marmaris close by.

Resort Summary

Less than 20 years ago, Icmeler was a humble fishing village nestled on Turkey’s south-eastern coastline. In the intervening decades, the town has piggy-backed on the success of neighbouring Marmaris – a 15-minute drive away – to achieve status as an attractive tourist destination for cheap holidays to Turkey.

It’s now almost unrecognisable from the sleepy hamlet of yesteryear, with fishing boats being replaced by luxury yachts and seafront cottages sitting beside All Inclusive resortsboutique restaurants and chic cocktail bars.

The town successfully maintains its authenticity and character, despite the large number of holidaymakers who come here each year. The welcoming atmosphere is enhanced by the beauty of its location, with pine-studded hills sloping down to meet crystalline waters, not to mention its abundance of green spaces.
