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.
