Overview of Dalaman, Turkey

Turkey is a land where east meets west, a melting pot of cultural influences which promises a holiday to remember. For an enticing mix of history and relaxation the south-west coast area of Dalaman is one to consider. The Turquoise Coast offers up a sandy coastline with watersports, bars and restaurants galore. The mountainous interior provides a backdrop for adventure whether you’re into hiking or want to take part in an adrenaline-pumping 4×4 safari. Resorts such as Marmaris, where you’ll find Lalila Blue Suites, provide a host of modern resort amenities with historic sites such as Ephesus within easy reach.

Things to in Marmaris

The Lalila Blue Suites is 2km from Marmaris resort centre, with its sleek marina and charming old town. The historic castle provides spectacular views and a peaceful pause after some haggling for souvenirs at the Carsi Market. Along the palm-lined promenade, a good selection of cafes and restaurants serve up a mouth-watering Turkish treats and international favourites. And while Marmaris Beach is the star of the show, for a change of scene, catch a dolmus bus to neighbouring _çmeler, just 10km away. Holidays to Turkey are always as smart choice with Marmaris and Dalaman providing plenty of scope for both sightseeing and leisurely pursuits.

Resort Summary

The unblemished stretches of sand which make up the coastline have been accredited with Blue Flag status, while the crowning jewel of Marmaris Castle sits above the shoreline in imposing splendour. In fact, it was from here that the famous admiral Horatio Nelson organised an assault on the French at the tail-end of the 18th century, meaning there is plenty for history buffs to explore as well.

Marmaris’ strategic location on the Turkish coast makes it the ideal hub for taking a cruise or catching a ferry to locations further afield. The picturesque marina – particularly dazzling at night-time – is near some of the clearest waters you’ll ever set eyes on, making for some spectacular scuba diving and snorkelling opportunities.
