Things To Do

 

You can never be bored in Marmaris. Actually, two weeks vacation would not be enough to see and do everything Marmaris and its surronding towns and villages has to offer.

If this is your first time in Marmaris, usually you will NOT know where to start. But do not worry, you will find all the guidance here at www.marmaris.org. If you like you can contact us before you come to Marmaris and we will help you plan your stay from start to end so you will get most out of your vacation.

 Aquadream Waterpark - Things to do in Marmaris

At your first day, after you settle into your room, the first thing most people do is go for a walk on the beach front. This is where most of the action is during the day. This is a looong beach front, from Icmeler to Yacht Marina. There are tons of cafes, restaurants and bars where you can hang out. All the beach is covered with sunbeds. You want to get comfortable with some spot where you think you will be comfortable with the staff of the bar or restaurant. Because they will be serving you and entertaining you while you come to the beach to sunbathing.
You can chose to go away from hustle and bustle and go to one of the five star hotels on the same beach front. Mares Hotel has really nice Pine forest on the beach where you can relax while enjoying the beach. No one will bug you. Take a nap, read, enjoy delicious food just around the corner.

So it is a good idea to go and walk the Long_beachfront, the Marina area and if possible Icmeler beachfront. Basically and practically you can walk  from Marmaris Marina to all the way to Icmeler. It is just so beautiful. Most importantly you will get a clear idea of the most active parts of Marmaris. Restaurants, bars, clubs, cafes, beach, majestic yachts, cruise-ships, activities are mostly are along on this beachfront. You can do this during the day on in the evening.

Most hotels have amazing swimming pools and game galores. You will make friends at your hotel and most probably will chose to spend afew days of your vacation by the pool and have fun. Usually there are a lot to do for the kids by the pool and they like playing with other kids. If you like like to be in a hotel with a kid club, thats even better. There are two waterparks in Marmaris that you can go.

The best place to watch the sunset is either by the beach or at the Marina area. Go to one of the bar or restaurants, get a bottle of wine and relax watching the gorgeous sunset. Just WOWWW!.
Or we can arrange a nice boat for you all and take you for a champagne suset cruise for a few hours. How about that!

There are numerous places to dine and wine. Place check our Places to Eat section for detailed information and reccomendations.

After dinner you can spend time visiting nice cafes at Netsel Marina overlooking one of the most amazing Marinas in the world. Netsel Marina. Go to long beach and enjoy Music and dance till midnight. Rock and Roll and Swing and Tango. Watch a dragshow.

If you would like to continue partying after midnight, The place to go is the Bar Street or Club Pacha. Barstreet is world class with hundreds of night-clubs next to each other. There is something for everyone. Bar-street closes at 4:00 am.

    After reading this, I really want to go to Marmaris. But you have to be careful which hotel you pick, especially after watching “Save My Holiday”! But I still want to go!!

  • Becci_babe13

    Just wondering.. how do you arrange the after- party boat cruise? .. We are going to Marmaris on the 16th June- 28th June :D

    • hayley & charlotte

      we are going to marmaris around the same time as you!!! and have you found out about that boat cruise??

    • Christopherjozwik

      hi, where you from?

    • Christopherjozwik

      hi. i am there from the 11th until 18th drop me an email. i am in marmaris during those dates. chris

  • Abu

    I want info about boat cruise pleae, we are there from 23rd-30th June

  • Cj

    you can organise boats trips with the local tours cost around 40 tl and take place from 8am til 5 or similar. didnt do it personally but they look good. did quad biking in the forest. overall not a bad place. stayed at the ideal prime beach. say hi to the russkies.

  • Carole Collins41

    Am going to Mamaris for the first time this year but have spent 3 great holidays near Altikum. Turkish bath a must(don’t look at the mitt!) and massage if funds stretch,heaven,but don’t do the local cheappies as friends came unstuck with them. Please go see Ephasos,magical.I hope to see Turtle beach and Pakkoria as they sound amazing.People grumble about waiting time,come on guys we’re on HOLIDAY and in a country where time stands still (that’s why we go there)All in all a great place for a break, found lovely people,a bit of harrassing at market,but usually okay with a shake of head and a smile,and a wonderful women in the herb shop who spent 2 hrs talking me through the various items(dried rhubarb??) + great bus service to travel around.A good crack,hope you enjoy!

    you can book a boat trip directly on the ship if you go up to the Marina Last year the cheap trip was a tenner each and included food and drinks!  The more expensive trip is £15 each its the same trip but with proper Coke, and Bottled Efes Beer instead of the cheap stuff!
    It’s a great day out and if you get the good weather Getting a Tan is easier on the boats than sat by a pool!
    We go late in the year as we have no Kids, so it’s a little quieter, and maybe not so hot and we try to go every year Finances permitting.
    While you are up at the Marina stop by at Hemsin’s the Patisserie and coffee shop on the corner, and take a stroll around the Bazaar it really is an Aladdin’s cave.

    We are a family from London. We will be traveling on the 24th July for7 nights.

  • Elainet1967

    hi we are going on the first of septmber and we would love to takea boat trip we are staying at the green nature

    • mary

      hiya, we stayed at green nature in may and loved it, we are actually booking up again for next may. just down the road is andy, we booked most of our trips off him and is all pretty cheap, they do a lazy day boat trip lunch included, but for a little extra if u book with the rep you do get a much better lunch, quite often its rice and chicken with the guys off the street, it was ok but my daughters and grandaughters are fussy and didnt really eat it so its a long day if ur hungry.
      the jeep safari was brilliant, and at the hotel there is kev who does the scuba diving, that was the hilight of my holiday i have to say, all day on boat, 2 dives and lunch was £20, then they take video and pics at an extra cost but totally worth it,
      food there was good, people say oh its not 5 star, but for turkey it is, loved every minute there and had no complaints at all, i hope u have a great holiday, x

  • Psw64

    Anyone going to Marmaris – from the jetty you can get a “taxi Boat” reality its the local bus but via water to Turunc and Icmeler – once you have got to the destination (turunc) especially you can have a meal walk down the main street then either come back to Marmaris by Dolmus / return by boat – (this is not a trip boat) or go to Turunc by Dolmus – great little journey – and return by boat again from the end of the jetty in Turunc – either way it will be a couple of pounds. Turunc Dolmus get from Bus station – better to get on at the start.Enjoy!

  • jenn

    • Leila

      if u havent gone 2 istanbul frm marmaris already- u can take a domestic flight from dalaman -1.5 hrs by havaş airport coach to dalaman (aprox 20 TL) then 1 hr flight to istanbul frm aprox 100L (40 GBP) oneway (try Turkish airlines or atlasjet online) or you can take a coach from marmaris to istanbul about 10 hours inc stops so u can go overnight aprox 40L (15-20 GBP) u can pop into the coach station there to book a seat. İ went by coach years ago but gonna go by plane this time.  İstanbul is worth a visit.

    Marmaris is great I have been there about 8 times and been other places n turkey but I prefer marmaris. There is so much to do I still haven’t done everything! The trips are amazing especially the boat trips and the people are really friendly sometimes to friendly! The night life is great (bar street) but doesn’t get busy till about 2am and it’s very expensive for a drink so get drunk first. The weather is sometimes too hot but starts cooling down in September but is still boiling. There is loads to do you would never get bored.

    me and my boyfriend are going to Mamaris at the end of June for a week. We are all inclusive and we are wondering about two things? Is it better to take British Sterling or Lira? & How much roughly would we need? We only fancy jeep safari and the water park and going to a bar once or twice?

    • http://www.marmaris.org Marmaris Turkey

      Any Currency is Fine, But I would bring British Pound as you can get better rate in Marmaris. As your Hotel all inclusive about 200GBP will be enough.If you want to do Shopping I would consider 400GBP

  • Lori Roe

    can you go topless on the beach

      Hi, not stayed in this hotel, but stayed in the one opposite, your hotel looked amazing. there was always loads of stuff going on day & night. There is a local craft market which is set up every evening just around the corner which sells some lovely items. there is also a weekly market (not sure which day) which you can get some great bargains. As for the resort of Marmaris there is always loads to do from boat trips, water park, grand bazaar also a lovely castle in the marina area. hope you have a great time.
