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.
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.
