Charter Destination Marmaris

Share this page

A former fishing village,in the Mugla Province of southwest Turkey, Marmaris is framed by rugged mountains and has a reputation for being a cosmopolitan hub. It is particularly attractive to yachting enthusiasts thanks to one of the most impressive natural harbours in the world.

Living up to its name in every sense, the translation for Marmaris is “shining”. The city is a labyrinth of bazaars, fine dining restaurants and chichi bars and clubs: a microcosm of modern Turkey. With wild, mountainous terrain and dense pine forests, it is also a paradise for hiking and outdoor enthusiasts. Adventure-hungry visitors can explore on mountain bikes or quad bikes, with both easy and more challenging routes to choose from. Or why not try horse riding through the countryside, and experience the scenery at a slower pace.

The coast around Marmaris is known for gorgeous beaches, with Cleopatra Beach – allegedly her wedding present from Mark Anthony – being the most famed. The icing-sugar sand beach of Iclemer is an ideal spot for families with its gentle slopes and shallow waters. Cruise along the coast to create your own breeze in summer, have lunch on board and cool off by diving and snorkeling in one of the many small bays where the marine life is rich and plentiful and the water is crystal clear
