For non-stop fun on Turkey’s turquoise coast, head for Marmaris. It’s a great choice with busy bars and clubs, a bustling marina and a selection of beautiful beaches.
In between busy nights on the town, you can spend your days strolling around the waterfront and working your way through its bars. Feeling peckish? There are many cafés and restaurants that serve some really tasty food. Maybe you fancy something a bit more local? You’ll be surprised at what you can pick up in a bazaar (local market), from food to souvenirs to take home. If you think you’ve got the gift of the gab, get haggling with the stall holders to bag yourself a bargain!
Exploring can be tiring work, so take it easy with a bit of rest and relaxation time at a Turkish Bath. A long soak, body scrub and soothing massage works wonders to relax you before a night out. It’s also a good way of trying out a Turkish tradition.
There are lots of places to have a drink on Marmaris’ famous Bar Street. From the friendly to the lively, they play all kinds of music, from rock to R&B and everything in between. With many open until at least 2am, you’ll be dancing until the sun comes up.

You’ll find restaurants down almost every street in Marmaris. They serve an amazing choice of foods from traditional Turkish kebabs to home comforts like chips and curry sauce. Line your stomach before a messy night or satisfy your cravings after a few drinks.
