With a backdrop of mountains and a wide, well-kept sand and shingle beach which runs the length of the bay, Içmeler is an attractive resort between Turunç and Marmaris. Içmeler features in the holiday brochures of many tour operators so you should expect it to be busier and more commercialised than Turunç.
Activity is mainly centered around the beach with a wide range of water-sports on offer. The village itself is very well cared-for and has a small canal which is lined with market stalls during the daytime and during the evenings the restaurants are lively and offer entertainment with your meal. A couple of discos provide some late night action although neighbouring Marmaris is only a short hop away for a larger choice.
There is a large and busy outdoor market held in Içmeler every Wednesday. This is located at the back of the village so is best reached by dolmuş which stops right outside rather than by taxi boat which means a longer walk.
Içmeler is approximately 8 Km from Marmaris and there is a promenade that allows this trip to be made on foot (or by bike!). It's a lovely walk at any time of the year: check out our "Winter Walk" movie for some great images.
Içmeler has a larger range of shops than Turunç and a Turkish bank, but for "serious" business you will need to go on to Marmaris.
