Turkey’s most sophisticated resort

Marmaris is a port city and key holiday destination in southwest Turkey

The area’s main source of income is tourism, and Marmaris is viewed as Turkey’s most sophisticated resort.

The city, in some form, has existed since the 6th century BC when it was known as Physcus. According to historians, Marmaris has had a castle since 3000 BC and a 16th century fortress can still be seen there today.

Marmaris is a former fishing village that experienced a construction boom during the 1980s, leading to many modern amenities such as shops and a wealth of bars and restaurants.

However, the town still retains its charm as it is set in an exceptional location of natural beauty; rugged mountains provide a stunning backdrop to the sheltered harbor.

Our excursions, which boast great deals on local attractions, include city tours of the historic areas in Marmaris as well as trips to the pretty villages of Dalyan, Icmeler and Osmaniye further afield.

Experience the traditions of yesteryear: no vacation to Turkey is complete without witnessing the skills of carpet-makers or sampling the local sweets and tea.

We invite you to join us in Marmaris - a charismatic city and a true ‘Turkish delight’!
