This small village located to the south of Marmaris on the 'Turquoise Coast' sits on the edge of a crescent-shaped inlet from the Mediterranean Sea. It is protected inland by mountains covered in fragrant pine trees, offering many opportunities for the hiker – information on routes can be found on Turunç Walks. Originally a fishing and farming community, there remains a family atmosphere extended to visitors, many of whom return.
The 'Blue Flag' awarded sand and shingle beach slopes into the clear, calm sea making it ideal for the whole family to have fun in the water during the day. The promenade along the edge of the beach has many restaurants and cafes, so a cool drink or snack is never far away.
This walkway leads to the harbour, where taxi-boats to Marmaris leave regularly throughout the day and tour-boats depart for longer trips. It also affords a quiet place to relax with a glass of local tea or beer and watch the world go by.
The main road through the village is bordered by shops, bars and restaurants serving a variety of meals, including traditional Turkish dishes. So, within a short walk from your accommodation you can find anything you need, from everyday necessities to more adventurous choices.
There is also an open-air market every Monday offering fruit, vegetables and spices, as well as the local speciality – honey from the pine trees. Here you can spend your time browsing the assorted colourful stalls in the shade.
