1. Incekum Beach
Many locals and visitors love Incekum Beach, where you can enjoy the Maldives environment with its sandy beach and sea. It is one of the must-see beaches in Marmaris, with golden sands and a sea that has every shade of blue. With its shallow sea, it is also ideal for families with children.
Incekum Beach is roughly 25 kilometers from Marmaris and can be reached by minibus from Muğla Center and Marmaris, or you can go to various bays, including Incekum Beach, with daily boat tours to Akyaka.
2. Amos Bay
Amos Bay, undoubtedly the most beautiful of Marmaris’s and its neighbouring bays, offers postcard-worthy views to its visitors. It is one of the bays you should definitely experience when you go to Marmaris. Amos Bay, located between Turunç and Kumlubük, is one of the cleanest aquarium bays in Marmaris.
The bay is only accessible by private vehicle or boat because there is no public transportation. The beach is free; however, the sunbed costs a rather low fee per person. If you visit Amos Bay, which is composed of stony and pebbled beaches, don’t forget to bring your snorkel and goggles.
3. Cennet Bay
Cennet Bay, with its unspoiled and peaceful atmosphere, is one of Marmaris/Selimiye’s most unique bays. Cennet Bay is often chosen by boats and yachts. Moreover, it is a wonderful spot for individuals who want peace, especially early in the morning.
This bay’s sparkling water, like the aquarium’s, is perfect for those who enjoy swimming in warm water. By the way, since there are no sunshades, sun loungers, or services here, we recommend that you bring the necessary things with you.
4. Sedir Island
Sedir Island is a dreamy island 12 kms away from Marmaris center. It has a long coastline, a sandy beach and surviving archaeological remains. The island is very popular and commonly called the “Maldives of Turkey”. It can be reached by car or bus from Marmaris and Akyaka. You have to reach the village called Camli and jump on a boat (every 30 mins).
