Turunc is a old fishing village which in recent years has grown due to the tourist industry which has developed. this is a small and friendly village, nestled at the foot of the mountainous bay, and is in no way spoilt.
The only way to Turunc is by the winding road down the mountain or by boat from Ichmeler or Marmaris (1hr away). There are many small shops and restaurants and everyone is very friendly. the beach is of sand and some small shingle and the beach has the european Blue Flag for cleanliness.

- Cons:Too few people come here. Recent private developement has not sold and is empty
