If you are looking to get away from it all and relax, then Dalaman is for you; providing the gateway to the countless picture perfect towns scattered along Turkey’s southwestern coast. Beautiful countryside, stunning beaches, gorgeous coastal scenery and a rich history will welcome you to Dalaman.
After landing, many tourists head straight to Marmaris. This port town has a non-stop party atmosphere with lots to keep you occupied so it's a favourite with younger travellers. That being said, it also boasts a pretty harbour in a mountainous bay, crowned by a castle and lined with yachts, so is equally perfect if you are looking for a quieter holiday. What’s more Marmaris is a perfect base for exploring the immediate surroundings such as the scarcely visited peninsulas of Bozburun and Datça as well as the Greek island of Rhodes only 1 hour away by boat.
If you would like to get a feel for a more traditional Turkish experience, Fethiye is the perfect choice for you. Here you can practice your haggling skills in the local markets or visit the amphitheatre and the impressive ancient city of Telmessos. Or perhaps, the laid-back resort of Icmeler is more your scene with seafront restaurants and busy markets; perfect for those who love to wander whether you wish to explore the quaint Old Town or hike up its picturesque hill backdrop.
And then there is Ölüdeniz beach which lies on a mesmerising blue lagoon. This Blue Flag pebble beach is one of the most photographed beaches in the Mediterranean and is frequently rated among the top five beaches in the world by travellers and tourism magazines due to its crystal clear waters and wonderful location. To top it off, Ölüdeniz is regarded as one of the best places for paragliding in the world thanks to its unique panorama views.
