Things to do in Marmaris

Stay at Tekin Apartments and you’ll be just a short walk from the beach and shops, bars and restaurants. The property is also close to the dolmu_ bus stop, so it’s very easy to get out and about. Marmaris is a lively spot with a buzzing bazaar at its heart, the ideal place to haggle for a bargain and pick up a souvenir or two. The palm-lined promenade and beach offer plenty of room for relaxation.

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.
