Exploring Marmaris by Boat

Given that Marmaris is hidden away at the heart of Turkey’s enchanting Turquoise Coast, it’s no surprise that the majority of visitors opt to explore the Mediterranean port town by boat. Multi-day cruises around the Datça and Bozburun peninsulas often stop in Marmaris, and cruise passengers can often book private arrival and departure transfers between Marmaris’ port and various hotels in advance to ensure a hassle-free trip. Another popular way to discover the coast is by gulet between Fethiye and Marmaris, where visitors can sleep onboard the traditional wooden sailboats.

Of course, travelers don’t have to arrive by cruise ship or charter a luxury yacht to sail the coast – there are plenty of options for day trips by boat. Cruise around the picturesque Marmaris Bay and beneath the steep coastal cliffs of the neighboring Adaköy peninsula, stopping along the way to swim or snorkel in little-known bays and sun-soaked coves, or head down the coast to the river delta of Dalyan, where you can spot turtles and relax in natural, mineral-rich mud pools. Alternatively, head around the Datça Peninsula to Cleopatra’s Island, (Sedir Island) Sedir Island, where the ancient queen is famously said to have met with her lover Mark Antony.
