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.
