The coastal town of Marmaris in the south west of Turkey is located on the Turkish Aegean Sea and is a popular tourist destination. The around 7 miles long beach promenade invites you to have calm walks along the densely built-up area. In addition to it you have a huge marina right close to your location where you can rent a traditional wooden boat, called Gulet. Thus make a trip to the secluded coves here in Marmaris and have a wonderful time.
I have found a nice holiday package on thomson.co.uk which takes you to Marmaris for only £174 based on 4 people sharing. That’s a great offer for a group of 4 friends or for a family. If you decide to go with this holiday package you will have 14 nights in the excellent 2 star Sun Apartments (89% on TripAdvisor) which has been awarded with a Certificate of Excellence. The hotel is situated on the outskirts of Marmaris, but it’s just a 5 minutes drive from here to the the beach and to the centre. The hotel has a nice pool area with a separate space for the kids and there is a poolside bar that offers cold and hot snacks. There’s also a weekly Turkish barbecue with delicious kebabs and great entertainment offers from traditional dancing shows to funny karaoke nights. Most of the reviews about the hotel say that especially the entertainment and the great stuff make the holiday to the Sun Apartments a memorable stay.
Even if the hotel is such a great place you should definitely check out the beach, because the water in Marmaris has been awarded with the blue flag for water quality. How about a visit to the Marmaris Kalesi which is the castle of the town? It was built in the 16th century and is now an interesting museum.
