Marmaris is one of the most astoundingly beautiful and popular destinations in Turkey and it’s not difficult to see why. Once people have visited here, they fall in love with the place and return time after time. Why not book a Gulet Charter in Marmaris to explore this dream holiday hotspot and experience it for yourself!
If you want a seaside resort that is not too big but is well-established and still has plenty of old charm left, Marmaris is most certainly the place for you. Once you arrive here you will be wowed by its quaint old-town streets, impressive castle and museum, and natural surroundings. In fact, while most people have come to expect the glorious blue seas that the region is famous for, what surprises visitors is just how mountainous and green it is. The beautiful scenery can be admired from aboard your Gulet Charter. And once on land, there are plenty of gorgeous spots that Marmaris has to offer!
If you are heading towards old town Marmaris, make sure to wander the narrow old streets around the Castle. It’s a maze of charm, cobbled streets, stairs, and character. In short, it’s lovely and quaint and has a unique character that makes Marmaris what it is today. The old town gives a good insight into what life looked like back in the day, and has retained all of its old-world charm. Nowadays you will find souvenir shops, cafes, and restaurants in this part of town, some of which offer mesmerizing views of the bay where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean. For an extra special treat, when visiting Marmaris Castle, why not climb the remaining steps to The Castle Bar, (we suspect this gem of a place is not quite as old as the Castle itself but it’s just as pretty), and enjoy a tasty cocktail while soaking up the best views of the bay Marmaris has to offer. The steps up here aren’t for the faint hearted but the views more than make up for it, and the delicious array of beverages on offer will cool you down.
Once you’ve immersed yourself in a Marmaris of days gone by, there’s plenty more to get up to. A stones throw from the Old Town you’ll find the famous Bazaar, a shopper’s paradise. Tunnels upon tunnels of shops dedicated to spices, traditional sweets and Turkish delicacies, souvenirs, jewellery, shoes, clothes…. In fact, there is not much you won’t find here. Get you bargaining head on and have a great time bartering with the locals for the best price. It’s an art in itself.
Another must while enjoying you Gulet Charter in Marmaris is a stroll through the Marina and definitely a meal or two. The endless bars and eateries along this strip, surrounded by yachts and gulets, are truly a culinary delight and perfect for the foodies amongst you. You’ll find seafood galore as well as more traditional fayre and not forgetting the Turkish Kebab. Something to tickle every taste bud.
