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.

You have to start making plans though according to your lifestyle. Of course you dont want to spend your whole vacation on the beach. You want to take some tours and laugh, enjoy and see more of Marmaris.

Marmaris Turtle Beach Tour

Lake Koycegiz  

It’s one of the biggest coastal lakes found in Turkey. Located in the province of Mugla, Lake Koycegiz is known for its diversity and tranquility alongside great views. This maritime lake which is full of fish is fed by salt water from the nearby sea and freshwater from streams and springs. Taking a bus trip to Kyceiz, we will explore the lake for about 45 minutes by using small boats.     

Dalyan Reeds and King Cemeteries    

  The reeds of Daylan provide visitors with a wholesome experience. The magical environment in addition to the beautiful water color will make your trip to Dalyan reeds worthwhile. In the current modern world, it’s not very easy to find a region that perfectly intertwines historical heritage and nature. However, as you explore the reeds of Dalyan, you will be able to come across ancient tombs that were cut out from mountains. The rock tombs provide unique spectacular views and will definitely feed your eyes.   

Dalyan Mud Bath 

Would you love to look decades younger? If so, you should definitely visit the Dalyan Mud Bath. It’s one of the most renowned mud baths globally that is popular with foreign tourists. During our Dalyan Mud Bath trips, we normally take about an hour or so while we are here. 

Iztuzu Beach (The Turtle Beach) and Caretta Carettas  

Found in Ortica District in the western province of Mugla, Iztuzu Beach is known for exceeding borders. It’s a narrow piece of land which covers an area of 4.5 kilometers. What makes Iztuzu Beach stand out is that it acts as a natural barrier between the Mediterranean Sea and the Dalyan River. Apart from being a stunning beauty, this beach is also home to the endangered Caretta Carettas. These rare turtles spawn this beach and if you are lucky enough, you might come across them during our trip.
