Marmaris and İçmeler in south west Turkey are both popular holiday destinations.

Like most of the resorts along the Aegean coast, it’s difficult to envisage Marmaris as the quaint fishing village it used to be.

Today, the town is a top holiday destination with its exclusive setting in a sheltered bay rimmed with oleanders, liquidambar trees and pine forests.

About 6km around the bay from Marmaris is Içmeler (place of drinking water), a resort that is ideal for holidaymakers who want to enjoy the nightlife in Marmaris itself but want to have a quiet time during the day.


It’s sometimes difficult to choose, especially if you’ve never visited either resort. Let Mick and Trudie help you.
