More than a seaside resort

Marmaris has a reputation, certainly in the UK, of being a fun packed resort for young people but this is not the case.
There is a lot for young people to do but this small city is no Ibiza Town or Magaluf. Certainly cheap and nasty in parts and fully aimed at the UK holiday maker there is something for everyone here - unlike nearby Icmeler we actually saw tourists from outside the UK! Not many but a few.
There is an excellent castle, beautiful water front and marina and a reasonable shopping centre.
Also a good mix of local people and local culture - at least Marmaris has not yet fully become a UK colony town yet!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:A large city with something for everyone
  • Cons:Aimed too much at UK visitors
  • In a nutshell:More than a seaside town
