Marmaris Beach, Beaches in Marmaris

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Marmaris BeachMarmaris and it’s enviroment are blessed with several good beaches, some developed, some still isolated. Içmeler, illustrated here, has some of the cleaner water and sand but is a little short of cheap accommodation. If you’re travelling independently then your best bet is probably to either take a day boat trip from Marmaris to “Cleopatra‘s Isle” or one of the other popular destinations.

Marmaris beach, home-away-from-home for big tattoo man, is a couple of miles long with a traffic free promenade stretching all way round the bay to the rather better Içmeler. Good for beer, chip butties and 24hr satellite soccer, it also has an award-winning PADI & BSAC dive centre. 2 hrs 15 mins from Dalaman Airport.

Muğla dolls take it to global stage

Friday, July 17th, 2009

A prominent artist in the resort town of Marmaris produces hand-made dolls that have gained worldwide renown. The dolls, each of which are produced individually and carry a unique ID card, attract great interest from overseas, especially Russia, the United States and the UK.

Muğla dolls take it to global stage Hand-made porcelain dolls produced by an artist in the popular resort town of Marmaris, featuring characteristics of the local traditional dress, have made their way onto shortlists of collectors from around the world.

The dolls are adorned with shoes, socks and duplicate jewels, making them a collector’s favorite. Şiir Dürüst, the producer of the dolls, now gets orders on the Internet. “More than 160 dolls, each one uniquely produced, are now in 140 different collections in various countries,” Dürüst said.

Dürüst started making hand-made dolls three years ago with the support of Temel Koçaklar, the Muğla governor at the time. “Doll collecting is the third most popular collection in the world after coin collections and stamp collections,” Dürüst said. “Sunay Akın, Turkey’s top doll collector, has also included Muğla dolls in his collection.”
