beach is a busy and somewhat down-market resort with occasionally clean sand but no showers, a couple of miles
long with a traffic free promenade stretching all way round the
bay to the rather better Içmeler where hawkers can be a bother. Marmaris is a fine place to get a tan, beer, chip butties
and 24hr satellite soccer; it also has an award-winning PADI &
BSAC dive centre and an Aqua Park that receives very mixed reviews ranging from 'absolute rubbish and a waste of time' and 'too commercial' to ' Best of the Water Parks in Marmaris'.
There are plenty of things to do near Marmaris, including Pamukkale, Dalyan's Lycian tombs, ancient ruins and mud baths,
and even Ephesus, but avoid the rip off day trips to Greece's Rhodes island. 'Rip off' seems to be a recurring phrase re Marmaris!
2 hrs 15 mins from Dalaman Airport.

Bodrum's small and imported beach. Next, Antalya and Alanya beaches.
Bodrum is a large, lively, well developed holiday resort and port on the Mediterranean coast with varied tourism possibilities including taking Blue Cruises on traditional gulet yachts, a restrained upmarket hotel life or a wild life of beaches, beer and all-night raves.
Just around the corner is slightly better Gumbet Beach but take a ride over to Bitez Beach for the best sand and services in the area.
