The full Monty of indulgent resort experiences akin to a Cancun or Phuket of Turkey. Marmaris is best known as a vibrant tourist town with spectacular sailing as well as a strong tie to ancient history. All manner of vacation-centric activities can be found here. In addition to sailing and beach-lounging, the endless list includes 4WD drives, hiking, fishing, hang gliding, water parks, horseback riding, jet-skiing, scuba diving, and of course, Turkish baths. An international sailing regatta occurs late October and the Presidential Professional Bicycle Race takes place every spring.
