Surrounded by pine-clad hills, Marmaris is located on the site of ancient Phykos. There are however numerous examples of Ottoman architecture from the reign of Suleyman the Magnificent since Marmaris was taken by him as part of his campaign against the island of Rhodes nearby. Among the buildings that may be seen are the castle built in 1521;a caravanserai built in 1545 and Tashan, also built in the 16th century.
Marmaris is deservedly better known for its natural beauty: the lace-like coastline is embellished with coves and inlets where one may go swimming, diving or fishing. The sheltered bay is excellent for windsurfing.
Accommodations, restaurants, and cafes are plentiful and tours are available to coves like Icmeler, Kumlubuk, Turunc, and Kadirga. The forests of fragrant pine- trees around Marmaris offer tempting picnic spots. Marmaris is a calling place on the Blue Voyage and boats may be hired here to go to Bodrum and Fethiye.
Boat tours are also available to the nearby ruins of ancient Caunos. Good highway connections make it easy to visit more distant places like Knidos, Pamukkale, Aphrodisias, and even Ephesus. The Marmaris marina is amply provided with everything a yachtsman might need.

Besides charter flights of travel companies, there are also regular flights from several European cities to the airports Dalaman (DLM), Bodrum (BXN), Izmir Adnan Menderes (ADB) and Rhodes (RHO). Depending on at which of these airports you arrive, you can then continue from there to Marmaris by means of bus, taxi or catamaran.
There are several ferry companies operating between Italy and Turkey.
When travelling to Turkey via car-ferry, you can choose from the following routes:
Ancona - Çeºme - Ancona (April to October)
Brindisi - Çeºme - Brindisi (June to September)
Often it is easier to find a flight to Rhodes than it is to Marmaris. If you fly to Rhodes, take a taxi for the short drive from the airport to the harbor and then take the catamaran to Marmaris. The boat trip lasts 45 minutes and is IMHO more interesting than the 90 minutes bus trip from Dalaman airport to Marmaris. Don't forget to match the arrival time of your flight on Rhodes with the departure time of the ferry.
Important: The port tax on the voyage between Rhodes and Marmaris is $24!
If you would like to retain your mobility during your holidays without having to rent a car, coming here by car might be an option for you. Before starting your journey don't forget to inform yourself regarding issues like transit visas, max. amount of foreign currencies you are allowed to carry with you etc.
