Marmaris has all the facilities you could wish for at a holiday destination. Travel to Marmaris Turkey?Marmaris was originally a small fishing village, but today you will hardly notice it. Along the coast you will find numerous hotels and apartment complexes, which were built at the initiative of the government from 1985 to promote tourism. It is undeniable that tourism has grown. Marmaris is a busy city with a lot of activity both during the day and at night.
When you stay in Marmaris you should definitely make the effort to take a walk on the castle hill, not only to visit the castle itself, but especially to stroll through the narrow streets. You will then get an idea of how Marmaris once was. The caravan serai, which used to accommodate traveling traders, dates from 1545. Today, the building houses a few shops. Always nice to visit is the bazaar, which you will find next to the old mosque. They mainly sell (fake) designer clothing. Finally, a visit to the marina is recommended. The Turkish jet set is happy to come to Marmaris and the marina gives you an impression of the life of these rich Turks. If you like people watching, the Netsel Marina and the castle is “the place to be” in Marmaris.
The beaches of Marmaris are very busy. They have all the facilities you could wish for and are cleaned daily. Sports enthusiasts can make use of the various water sport options and sun worshipers can rent a sun bed and umbrella. You can buy refreshments in one of the bars that are located at the beaches.
