Here, in no particular order, we bring you five of the biggest and best sightseeing attractions in the popular Turkish coastal resort of Marmaris, that we think would make any holiday to Marmaris one to remember.
1. Marmaris Castle and Museum
This castle is steeped in local history, having originally been built by the Ionians in 1044 BC and modified throughout the years, most notably by Alexander the Great. The castle underwent an extensive restoration process and opened as a museum in 1991, housing seven exhibition galleries and providing stunning views across the town.
2. Ancient Ruins of Amos
Dating back to the Hellenistic period, these ruins consist of a hillside amphitheatre, temple and statue pedestals. The ruins are accessible via the Arascik hills, with the local minibus service passing through Amos so you can visit quickly and easily from Marmaris.
3. Cennet Island
A popular destination for cruises to visit, this peninsular island is a 30 minute boat ride from Marmaris, and provides a tremendous day out. The island is lined with scenic forests, and has plenty of restaurants and swimming areas for ultimate relaxation.
This village is particularly popular with Turkish tourists and holiday makers, and is best known locally for its beautiful yacht harbour. Around 50km outside of Marmaris, Bozburun has a peaceful atmosphere and makes an ideal spot for those who need a break from the hustle and bustle of Marmaris.
5. Turgut Waterfall
A 10-metre high waterfall around a 15 minute walk outside the village of Turgut, this stunning waterfall is known locally as Selale, and provides an idyllic, peaceful getaway from the bustling local towns and villages.
