Marmaris

Location
Marmaris Turkey is in the south west corner of the country with plenty of ways to reach it by air, sea or road. Winters tend to be quiet but at the first sign of spring visitor numbers rise dramatically and are maintained throughout the summer peak holiday months. Please visit Marmaris Weather guide for further information.  

Air
Dalaman Airport, around 90 minutes to the east is the international airport serving Marmaris and South West Turkey in general. There are domestic flights all year round up to Istanbul with onward connections to every part of the world.

Direct flights into Dalaman from a huge number of regional airports begin in March and run into November when they finally stop for the weeks of winter. There are plenty of cheap charter flights from places as diverse as Glasgow, London, Amsterdam and Cologne. The Turkish airline Pegasus is growing all the time while Turkish Airlines are one of the world’s leading brands. Easyjet has many flights and the major tour firms such as Thomas Cook and Thomson offer flights and all-in Marmaris Accommodation packages. Flights to Marmaris are plenty and Marmaris transfers very easy to organise individually if you are not being collected by a tour operator.

Some visitors may fly into Milas Airport close to Bodrum. It is not much further away than Dalaman in fact, just in a different direction; north.

Road
The Turkish road infrastructure is excellent. There is a modern highway running west to east, to cities such as Antalya and beyond. Equally a very good road runs parallel to the Aegean Coast past Izmir and all the way up to Istanbul.

Sea
Marmaris is an important ferry port. There are daily connections with the Greek Island of Rhodes by ferry or hydrofoil while many other people dock in Marmaris when sailing around the Turquoise Coast in a gullet or a yacht. Many Gulet cruise Marmaris options go to Rhodes, Fethiye and Bodrum frm here. 

Locally there are a couple of popular ways to get around. The dolmus is Turkey’s public mini-bus service while there are plenty of taxis though you should negotiate a price before getting in.
