Things to do in Içmeler, Turkey

Surrounded on all three sides by miles of pine forests İçmeler is a stunning and popular resort just 8 kilometres from Marmaris and Physkos. Located in the Turkish Riviera it's a quieter alternative to the busier local town of Marmaris, with a beautiful beach and wonderful collection of cultural things to do and see. The nightlife is scarce in this old sponge divers' village, making it a quiet alternative to other popular destinations in the area.

The Canal

On your visit to İçmeler a walk along the canal is definitely recommended. Enjoy the various stalls selling local goods including handmade items and local foods. The embroidery is something to be revelled at and you'll find traditional Turkish Delight available at very reasonable prices too. A visit by night is also worth doing to see the incredible atmosphere created by the lights used to ignite the canal in a kaleidoscope of colour.

Içmeler Beach

Complete with sunbeds, WiFi, golden sands and beautiful water İçmeler beach is a popular tourist attraction in the area and certainly caters for it. There's plenty of places to set up camp for the day with extraordinary views across the water. There's plenty of food and drink and many places will see to your needs with waiters throughout the day. There's also a variety of water activities you can experience if you're inclined to do so.

Mitos Lounge

If you're looking for a little more luxury you can visit Mitos Lounge. Experience bathing in the sun on bean bags and cushions or perhaps lay yourself out on the outdoor beds they have lining the beach. The ambience is perfect for relaxation with calm music playing and furniture with a difference including stone sofas with plush cushions. Right next to the water you can enjoy a smooth beverage, a dip and a special day of relaxation.

Market Day

If you're interested in tasting the local delights of shopping İçmeler is certainly the place to be. There is plenty on offer and the Wednesday market is an experience to be had. Although your attention will be vied for by different sellers the wares on offers are incredible. Try your hand at some friendly bartering and enjoy everything a typical British market offers at much lower prices. An ideal place to find souvenirs and another experience to add to your list of things you've done while visiting Physkos.

Hiking the Mountains

For a unique experience off the beaten track take an adventure into the surrounding pine forests. İçmeler is surrounded on all three sides by thick forests of tall pines. If you get the chance, a recommended hike into the mountains to talk amongst the pine trees is worth it. You'll be greeted by a wonderful aroma of pine with the gentle chirping of critters in the background. There are plenty of stunning views to take in too.
