Truly the Jewel of the Turkish Riviera. It is Turkey's most sophisticated and multi-faceted resort. Located where the Aegean sea meets the Mediterranean, the beautiful bay is famous for its yachting and cosmopolitan atmosphere. Marmaris is originally a Greek word meaning glittering and shining and this is a very apt description. Hundreds of restaurants, shops, tours, and other entertainment ensure that you will never be bored. The traffic-free promenade stretching from the marina all the way round the bay to Icmeler. It has a sophisticated 'Riviera' feel to it, vaguely reminiscent of St. Tropez. Must see places: the outdoor Market, The Tomb of Sariana, The Kervansaray, The Tashan (Stone Inn) & The Aqueduct.
