Marmaris is a port city and a tourist destination on the Mediterranean coast, located in southwest Turkey, in the Mugla Province. It is also a major centre for sailing, possessing two major and several smaller marinas. It is a popular wintering location for hundreds of cruising boaters. There are regular ferry services to the Greek island of Rhodes, and large cruise ships call at the port.


Marmaris has more forest and natural beauty, landscape to offer than Kusadasi, except the historical site which is not as rich as Kusadasi. The old town and the bazaar are found east of Ulusal Egemenlik Bulvari. Neither is particularly interesting, but the Castle Museum is worth a look.

When you are at Marmaris if face to the sea, it may look like a lake. There is small straigth connects to open see which is hard seeing it.


Marmaris is easily accessible as a day trip destination from the Island of Rhodes, fast ferries operate daily, and the journey time is about an hour. The Local Tourism Board operate a free shuttle service in to town from the docks, giving a tour of the area in the process.
