İçmeler Turkey

İçmeler - Turkeyİçmeler is a holiday tourist resort town is enclosed on three sides by beautiful pine forests and by İçmeler Bay from the other side at its location on the Datça Peninsula. İçmeler has developed quickly over the last decade with hotels, pensions, bars and restaurants among other tourist amenities opening in this fishing village. Sponge diving in the area was the precursor to increasing watersports activities, such as; scuba diving, waterskiing and many others. The town grew in popularity from tourists seeking a quieter alternative to the overly hyper city of Marmaris. Nightlife that blares on until the early morning hours is rather scarce in İçmeler with local restaurants and bars generally featuring live music, shows and entertainment until about midnight. İçmeler is located only 8 kilometers from Marmaris - a short taxi ride for those who would like a more vibrant nightlife. Almost all of the bars and clubs in Marmaris are open to at least 4AM. But, remember when drinking on Bar Street that prices are much higher than those along the beach front even though entry to most clubs is free.

İçmeler is an excellent departure point for taking a Blue Cruise on Turkish gulet along the Aegean coastline. The accommodation available in İçmeler is of a high standard and there are numerous restaurants and bars of to choose from which serve Turkish and International cuisine. In the heat of a summer day İçmeler is peaceful and quiet while everyone is soaking in the sunshine on the beach or sitting poolside. Possessing an excellent beach, İçmeler shines as a sun, sea and sand holiday resort destination with a wide variety of watersports available at the resort hotels along the sea front. Others perhaps spending their time on day tours exploring the beautiful countryside or enveloping themselves in the culture and history of the area. İçmeler has a central shopping area which offers all the essentials. There is a local market (Turkish: pazar) on Wednesdays and in Turunç on Mondays where you can find most everything you need, and the more serious shopper can always take the 15 minute ride into Marmaris to the covered bazaar of the old town to find the best buys on designer clothing, towels, leather goods, copper and brassware, carved onyx and jewelry.
