How to Spend 3 Days in Marmaris

How to Spend 3 Days in Marmaris

As the gateway to the Turquoise Coast, Marmaris delivers both natural and historical attractions. Whether you want to cruise along the coast, discover ancient history, or sip cocktails into the early hours, use these suggestions for how to best spend three days in Marmaris.

Day 1: Essential Marmaris

Spend your first day getting your bearings in the resort of Marmaris. Stroll to the hilltop Marmaris Castle for sweeping views of Marmaris Marina—home to glitzy yachts and gourmet restaurants—before taking a boat cruise around Marmaris Bay. Depending on your schedule, opt for a half- or full-day cruise that covers highlights such as Cleopatra Island (Sedir Island) and Iztuzu Beach (Turtle Beach).

Back on dry land, see a different side of Marmaris on a horseback riding tour or a Jeep safari, which takes you off the beaten path to rural Mediterranean villages and the Turgut Waterfall. Or, if you’re in need of some rest and relaxation, opt for a spa package that includes a traditional Turkish massage and access to the steam room and saunas of a traditional hammam. 

Day 2: Rhode to Ruin

Dedicate your second day to exploring further afield. As the gateway to the Aegean and Maditerranean seas, day trip options from Marmaris are plentiful. If you’re feeling adventurous, head by boat to the historic Greek city of Rhodes—home to the ancient Acropolis of Rhodes and a medieval Old Town that's listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Tours typically include round-trip transfers by speedboat and can be tailored to include more guided sightseeing or free time to explore at your own pace.

Other popular options include the UNESCO World Heritage-listed archaeological site of Ephesus—home to the House of the Virgin Mary, which is believed to be the final home of Jesus’ mother; the thermal pools of Pamukkale, where petrified waterfalls create an otherworldly landscape; and the Hierapolis ruins, which include an amphitheater, basilica, and large Roman bath. 

Day 3: Delights of Dalyan

Devote your final day to the historic and natural attractions of Dalyan, which are best visited as part of a tour that includes transfers by both land and sea. Dalyan highlights include the Dalyan Mud Bath, home to therapeutic mud that’s said to reduce signs of aging; Turtle Bay (Iztuzu Beach), where you can spot endangered loggerhead turtles; and a series of Lycian rock tombs carved into coastal cliffs. If you’re traveling with kids, spend the day at Aquadream Waterpark, one of the largest of its kind in Turkey. Opt for a package that includes skip-the-line admission tickets and round-trip transfers from Marmaris for maximum convenience. 

Then, once the sun sets, indulge in some Turkish culture with a dinner and belly dance package, or take a sunset dinner cruise to the confluence of the Aegean and Mediterranean seas.
