Surrounded by hills and close to Mediterranean sea lies Marmaris. This resort in Turkey is a wonderful place to relax on the beach and to enjoy nightlife at the same time. It lies in the south west of the country and invites you to leisurely strolls over the 7 miles long beach promenade. Besides that you’ll have a huge marina here where you can rent a traditional wooden ship to sail right to the secluded coves of Marmaris. The sea water in Marmaris has been awarded the blue flag for water quality and the beaches are one of the most stunning in Turkey.
I recommend you to visit the Marmaris Kalesi which is a castle that was built in the 16th century and is nowadays a museum with loads of interesting cultural history.
Be sure to save such a wonderful holiday and have a look at the offer on thomascook.com: 14 Nights incl. 2-star hotel, flights from London Stansted to Dalaman cost only £145 per person based on four adults sharing.
But you can change the party size yourself if you click on ‘available room and board basis’ below the description on the provider’s page. The same holiday costs you for example £193 per person based on two adults sharing. So feel free to suit it up to your needs and make this holiday a perfect long family holiday.
There are only a few rooms left on the August dates, so be quick if you want to book this holiday!
The 2-star Ekin Apartments (4.5/5 on TripAdvisor + Certificate of Excellence 2014) has excellent reviews and its location is close to the resort centre’s nightlife and to the beach. It runs also a decent outdoor pool framed by a sun terrace with sunloungers and if you decide to travel with kids, then they’re going to enjoy their own separate children’s pool.
The transfer is not included in the price, but I have check out your way from Dalaman Airport to Marmaris and it’s a little journey, but travelling by bus makes the way very cheapish. The bus takes probably 2.30hrs and costs only £7 each way (see the directions below).
