A town by the coasts
You just know the first thing you got to do when you arrive here! Marmaris proudly presents you a neat, tidy and green beach. Sitting in the esplanade lined by palm trees can be one of the highlights of your total visit to the place. It is amazing how they have maintained the beach with almost nobody to bother you during your stay!
While the waves dancing on the shore calm you down, Marmaris does not fail to remind you the bold sound of 200,000 troops of King Suleiman marching down the top of the hilltop now known as the Marmaris hilltop Castle. This castle gives you a tour to the archeological finds such as tombstones, figurines and also the remaining from the shipwreck in Marmaris bay which can be found inside in the small museum.
Along with that, you can go full crazy clubbing in the elegant and luxury bars and pubs where you can dance till your heels break and groove till your ears ache from the loud music. And if you love partying, Marmaris is definitely the city you should be visiting!
