There is a large play area near the Prince Bar were children can play in a large bouncy castle or hire litte bikes and motorised cars.
The area round here is very safe and children are supervised.
Also dotted around the resort are other play areas with swings,roundabouts and slides.
Address: Prince Bar
Directions: Near the fountain in the square
Although Icmeler hasnt got a waterpark of its own since the closure of the small one near Tansas,there are two waterparks in Marmaris just 10 minutes away by dolmus,
The best one being the Atlantis Waterpark situated on the sea front,this park opens early May and closes late October.
It provides plenty of sunbeds and shade,has a seperate bar,restaurent and bar all serving snacks and drinks at normal prices.
Its a good day out for all the family.

Walking round the resort when the sea is still,

Directions: All around us.
ZaZas Havana Bars Bike Hire
You can hire cycles near the Letoil Hotel and near the Prince apartments near the Efendi Hotel.
Cycling to Marmaris is quite easy and safe along the promenade that runs from Icmeler to Marmaris.
This is also a nice walk but is quite daunting at the heat of the day.
Cycling to Turunc I wouldnt recommend as it is very hilly and the road could be a little dangerous.
Instead take the Taxi boats to Turunc and come back on the Dolmus,you will have spectacular views from the top of the moutains.
Also cycling around the od village and seeing how life still is just metres away from the resort
Directions: Round & About
Pirate Boat Trip
This was an ICR boat trip that had a Pirate Theme,
Everyone making an effort by either wearing an eye patch,sporting hooks and wooden legs and more muskets and cutlases to fill an armoury
This goup of Buccaneers left the ICR offices at about 9-30 am, all intent on having a good time.
We travelled to Marmaris in a small bus got dropped off at the harbour then boarded our pirate vessel.
Everyone had loads of room to stretch out because there was only about 24 pirates on the boat.
The day passed visiting the cave,fish farm,we had swim stops and a fantastic lunch,with as much as you could eat.
Some of the pirates who had done naughty things were made to ride the ringos,John getting all this on film.
The stop in Turunc was an afternoon to remember.
We all got off the boat and walked through the centre of Turunc,all dressed up in our pirate gear.
Shopkeepers came out of thier shops and gazed in awe as this bunch of skirvy cut-throats ambled through thier town.
We arrived at the Tavern (Bar 48 and ordered our grog.
In the tavern Phil gave his rendition of "From Paris To Berlin" surely he is a star in the making.
Buxom wenches were plentifull.
Donna led the dancing helped by Joanne.
People were stopping outside and even entering the bar to try and become part of the "ICR Buccaneers"
We had a fantastic day out with forum members it was a pleasure to meet you all.
Joanne summed it all up on the last leg of our sea voyage back to Icmeler,
As everyone was gazing up towards the warm sun gently carresing our faces she said.
"This Is What Memories Are All About"
Address: On the Ocean Waves
Directions: Marmaris Bay and Turunc
Setting off at about 10-30am in the morning,a small group of about 10 of us set off for a pleasant day out to Gypsy Beach not far from Hisaronu.
We travelled along the Datca road,turning off at the Hisaronu sign and threaded our way along the narrow lanes until we arrived at Gypsy Beach.
We arrived at this lovely tranquil beach with beautifull views of the surrounding mountains,and in the far disance we could see the Greek island of Symi.
Our base on the beach was a little restaurent serving the Cub Rena a small holiday complex made up of small wooden chalets.
We had the use of the Club Rena pool and surrounding scatter cushions,as well as the sunbeds and sunshades on the beach.
The day was layed back, everyone enjoying the sun and gentle breeze off the sea.
Lunch was taken at the restaurent,and Ann and myselfe chose chicken on a skewer with pasta and chips with a side salad and of course this was all washed down with a pint of ice cold Efes.
The meal and drinks were all extra to the cost of the trip.
We decided before we all left this idylic place that we would experience the "Sun Setting" behind the distant mountains that Chelsea Boy had told us so much about.
At about 6-50pm we all posistioned ourselves in a place were we thought each of us could get a good picture.
As the sun began to set, everything seemed to go calm, there was hardly any sound except for the waves gently lapping the seashore.
For a short moment everything seemed to standstill,the sky went red,the sea also gave the impression of being "On Fire"
Everyone looked at each other,each wanting this sight never to end.
Who had got the best picture?,
what we all did agree on was that we had all experienced a most beautifull scene.
Boarding our small bus we headed back to Icmeler and within 30mins we were being dropped of at the ICR office.
A remarkable day out and one to remember and all this for just £6 each.
Address: Bozburon Peninsular
one of the nicest places I have had the fortune to visit.
Leaving Icmeler and heading towards the Bozburun Peninsular it took one and an half hours through winding roads and picturesque villages,driving over a mountain range where to to one side was the Bay of Marmaris and to the other the Bay of Bodrum.
Onward we travelled till we came accross DATCA.
A true Turkish town whos market meandered through the quaint streets and not one bit of hassle.
Tree lined promenades with bars and restaurents suiting all tastes.
Boasting two beaches,an harbour and first class country park as well as my favourite 10 white ducks swimming in the sea,
DATCA is most certainly a place I intend to make a repeat visit.
Directions: Bozburan Peninsular
Gokova Bay covers the magnifcent scenery of the gulf of Gokova whom Jaques Cousteue rates the pristine condition of the sea and beaches as the finest in Europe.
Visit English Harbour were boats off the English Fleet used to hide during the war.
Take photographs of the little mermaid a small sculptor in such a vast sea.
The scenery round this area is stunning so please take your cameras
Cleopatras Island A gift to Cleopatra from Mark Anthony.
White sands, old ruins,
Some people say three and a half hours is to long to spend here,
How long would you like to spend in Heaven.
I would reccomend taking plenty of water with you although I do understand that a cafe is on the Island.
How many of you when going on the jeep safari have had the chance to call at Oranhiye and had the chance of "Walking On Water"
Oranhiye is a little village with sunbeds, a couple of restaurents and a camel you can ride, but is better known for a 150 mtr stretch of sandbank that sweeps out into the bay.
Legend goes that when pirates attacked this village, one particular maiden filled the front of her dress with sand and sprinkled it into the sea trying to make a path for her escape.
Unfortunately her sand ran out, sooner than face the raping and pillaging pirates she threw hereselfe off the sandbar and was drowned.
Another story is that if any maiden walks to the end of the sandbank and returns she will go home a virgin.
Address: Turkish Country Side
Directions: Towards The Beach And Clear Blue Skies
The jeep safari came about to see the Blue Fish through this little snippet on mythology I found.
The story goes that just before Cleopatra left Egypt on her journey to the Bozburun Penninsular in Turkey,she was given a necklace by Mark Anthony made from semi-preciouse stones called Lapiz-Lazuli,these gems are a vivid blue in colour.
One morning when Cleopatra went down to the river to bathe she was overcome by a deep sense of sadness brought on by the absence of her lover.
Tears fell from her eyes and fell on the necklace,a token of Anthonys love for her.
The gems heavy with the Tears Of Sadness broke and the jewels fell into the water,on hitting the water each stone was turned by Aphrodite the goddess of love into one of these elusive fish we look for today,each fish representing a tear of sadness for a missing loved one and for the memory of Anthonys love for Cleopatra.
Address: Jeep Safari
Directions: Tranquil waters of Turkey on the Bozburun Penninnsular
