travel42 Port Guide: Marmaris

Marmaris travel42 Port of Call Guide

One of the most developed Aegean resorts, Marmaris is mostly noted for its yacht harbors and the jet-setters they bring in. Its 6-mi/10-km coast, 310 mi/500 km south of Istanbul, is solid with fancy, high-rise hotels, and the local bazaar caters to day-trippers coming over from Rhodes. In terms of historical sites, however, there's not much to see, so unless you specifically need to go there to meet your yacht, your time is better used elsewhere.
