One of Turkey's major port towns and tourist resorts, Marmaris sits on the stretch of the Mediterranean coastline popularly known as the "Turkish Riviera." Nestled between verdant mountain ranges and the sea, Marmaris draws sailors and divers from around the globe, its marinas packed with private yachts and tour boats.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Iztuzu Beach 2 and Akyaka Plaji. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Dogan Gunes S-1 Yuksel Kaptan and Oren PlajI. Venture out of the city with trips to CInar PlajI (in Akyaka) and Turunc Sahil (in Turunc). There's still lots to do: stroll through Icmeler Beach, walk around Ataturk Park, step off the mainland to explore Sedir Island, and take a stroll through Datca Peninsula.

St.-Tropez of Turkey
Elegant Bodrum is a district and port city, watched over by its 15th-century seaside castle and is home to the Mausoleum of Mausolus, one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World. Formerly a simple fishing village, the town flourished after writer Kabaağaçlı put the city on the map: exiled here in 1925, he adopted the pen name, "The Fisherman of Halicarnassus"--an allusion to the city's name in aniquity. Today this seaside vacation spot charms visitors with a glittering marina, flower-filled cafes, palm-lined promenades, and a host of seafood restaurants. The serene simplicity that caught Kabaağaçlı's eye has since attracted other artists, giving Bodrum a sophistication that sets it apart from other coastal towns.
