Travel to this friendly resort with your family, friends, and partners or even on your own. Icmeler is ideal for a perfect family holiday in the warm sun with temperatures reaching 30 degrees in the summer months.
Hit the beach
Icmeler Beach is one of the best in the region and the perfect place to make the most of the favourable weather conditions in the area. There’s plenty of sand on which top up your tan, whilst the water is nice and inviting when it comes to taking a dip to cool off.
You can seek out a bargain with a trip to the weekly market in Icmeler, which is held on a Wednesday on the outskirts of the town. Be ready to haggle in order to get the best price on a range of goods, which will include a selection of locally produced souvenirs.
Take a trip to nearby Marmaris and one of the main attractions will be the Atlantis Waterpark, which provides fun for all the family. There’s large slides for those who enjoy a thrill as well as a splash zone for the smallest children – as well as dining and shopping options.
The Lycian Tombs that are found to be found along the coast of Dalaman are worth a visit if you have a desire to explore history and culture. Carved into limestone cliffs near Dalyan, the tombs can only be seen from the water and date back to around 400BC. Get lucky and you might also spot loggerhead turtles during your time on the water.
If you decide to spend a day in the Dalyan area, then the ancient city of Kaunos is also worth a trip. Once an important sea port, the city was abandoned in the 15th century and has gradually been uncovered since the 1960s; providing visitors with the chance to marvel at what life used to be like.
Visit a Hammam
No matter where you are going, you should try and make sure that you spend some time visiting a traditional Turkish Hammam. Here you can undergo a range of different treatments that will leave you feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready to enjoy the remainder of your time in the sun.
