Marmaris was a bit of a last minute decision for us, and we were thanking our lucky starts we got to spend some time in this haven. Marmaris is situated in a cove, on the southern tip of the western coast, so that you are surrounded by mountains on every side. To me, it felt a bit like hawaii, lush and green, with warm water lapping at your feet. Like any touristy European beach town, the coast is swarming with beach clubs complete with chairs, umbrellas, and waiters. The nice part is that you didn’t pay to use the umbrellas and chairs, you just had to buy a drink, which we probably would have done anyway! After a crazy 2 weeks tromping through Turkey and ferrying all over Greece, we were exhausted. I will never forget the morning in Marmaris when we woke up, ate a delicious breakfast overlooking the ocean, and then just sat at the beach doing nothing but reading and sipping cold drinks. It sure was a blessing.
