Marmaris National Park with its Unique Beauty

Located within the provincial border of Muğla, at the intersection of the Aegean Sea and Mediterranean range, Marmaris National Park was declared a nature park in 1996. Popularly known as Günnücek, the park takes its name from the frankincense tree, which is abundant in the region. There are about 50 different bird species as well as wild animals in the park. The frankincense tree, from which perfume and fragrance are made, is one of the prominent natural riches of the region. Marmaris Nature Park, which has many ancient city ruins, is also a convenient place to do various activities.


Bed for Birds Bordubet Bay

Bordubet Bay, located on the Marmaris Reşadiye Peninsula, is called this name because it harbors bird nests. You can witness the magnificent combination of the sea and the forest in the bay where there is very little construction. The bay, which is affluent in bird and plant species, forms a natural channel 200 meters wide and 600 meters long. You can enjoy the peace and calmness of the sea in the bay, which can be reached by boat or vehicle.


The Chimney Cavern, Hidden Treasure for Divers

The clear sea of Marmaris is not only suitable for swimming but also for diving. You can dive from 5 meters to 50 meters in the Chimney Cavern, one of the most famous caves of Muğla. You can see cardinal fish and shrimps in the cave, which is often preferred by professional divers. The Chimney Caverns are located approximately 20 km from Marmaris and awaits those who enjoy diving.


Marmaris Castle and Museum Built by the Ionians

When the Aegean Sea is mentioned, it is, of course, unlikely for a town to be without a castle. Marmaris Castle, one of these historical castles, was built in B.C. It is said to have been built in 1044. The castle, which is thought to have been renovated during the time of Alexander the Great, was expanded in 1522 before the Rhodes Must Fall of the Ottoman Empire. Heavily damaged by French artillery during the First World War, the castle was renovated in 1990 and reopened as a museum. In the castle, which has an archaeological and ethnographic gallery, you can see many artifacts from the Hellenistic Period and Byzantine culture.


Temple of Mother Goddess Amos Ancient City

Located between Turunç Village and Kumlubuk Canyon, the ancient city of Amos means "Temple of Mother Goddess" in ancient Greek. Especially on the slopes of Kumlubuk, you can see the ruins of the ancient city walls and the traces of the amphitheater. The ancient city, which has lease agreements dating back to 200 BC, has a fascinating sea view.


Azmak Creek Curling Through the Forests

Azmak Creek, located in Akyaka Village, 30 km from Marmaris, is one of the water sources feeding the Gulf of Gökova. Especially ideal for boat tours and swimming, the Azmak Creek fascinates you with its ice-cold water and fascinating clear water. Those who wish can camp in the forested areas around the creek or stay in the nearby hotels.


Turgut Village for Jeep Safari Fans
