The pine-covered mountains that surround Icmeler once shrouded a village full of fishing folk and sponge divers. These days, holidaymakers dip their toes in these warm waters too. Well, why wouldn’t they? This gorgeous slice of the Turkish coastline is picture perfect and drenched in sunshine.
Icmeler is an ideal holiday destination for families, couples and groups. The Blue-Flag sand and shingle beach is ideal for an afternoon with a good book, or a morning crammed with laughter, splashing and sandcastle building. Buzzing Marmaris is just along the shore (a 10-minute bus ride) for party nights and days spent haggling in the bazaar or touring the castle, but Icmeler itself has everything you need to enjoy a week or two in the sun.
