Marmaris, the most well-known beach resort in the area, lies on a sweeping bay on the south-west coast of Turkey, just beyond the point where the Aegean meets the Mediterranean. Thanks to the nearby Atlantics Waterpark and Star Aqua Park, it’s also a fantastic and highly affordable holiday destination for families with young children. Beyond the beach and harbour, Marmaris has a buzzing Carsi Market where you can haggle to your heart’s content.
Twenty minutes by car from Dalaman Airport is easy-going Sarigerme, where the best section of its beach is part of a national park and you have to pay a small fee to enter. An all-inclusive holiday package here is likely to see you staying close to this beach so you can easily walk to it.
The holiday town of Fethiye has plenty to boast about, including rocky coves, peaceful beaches, pine-covered mountains, offshore islands and nature, and a wide range of resorts from boutique to cheap. The biggest attractions here include the Roman amphitheatre, ruined Crusader castle, and several magnificent Lycian rock tombs.
Half-an-hour’s drive away from Fethiye is the spectacular Ölüdeniz, where an all-inclusive holiday gives you the chance to laze around its renowned blue lagoon and soothe your aches with a Turkish bath. To jazz up your holiday, you could give paragliding, the most famous outdoor activity in Ölüdeniz, a go.
