A Turkish peninsula paradise

Fringing the south end of Marmaris Bay, Icmeler looks out to the deep blue Mediterranean, while the Aegean lies behind dramatic mountains that loom over the town. It’s an extraordinarily beautiful setting. On Icmeler holidays, the bright lights of Marmaris and the mountainous Datca Peninsula are also within easy reach and are ripe for exploration.

Icmeler’s pretty beach is surrounded by pine forests, which are criss-crossed by walking trails that ascend up steep slopes. Here you can enjoy sweeping views across the water and glimpse the adjoining Datca and Bozburun peninsulas. Roughly dividing the Mediterranean from the Aegean, these stretches of land are wonderful places where holidaymakers will find secluded beaches, wild coves and fishing villages with bougainvillea-draped lanes. In the other direction is Marmaris – a major resort that’s full of busy beaches and bars.

A destination with high-drama scenery and plenty to see and do, holidays to Icmeler in Turkey never disappoint.
