The Turkish Aegean Coast region

The Turqoise Coast of Turkey is noted for its guranteed hot, dry climate from May to October.

Situated just 9km west of the bustling resort of Marmaris, Içmeler is its quieter neighbour ideally suited to couples and families who like a quieter, friendlier resort. The new road from Dalaman airport means that the transfer time has been reduced to less than an hour.

Icmeler lies at the foot of picturesque mountains, it is situated on a large spectacular bay with a large beach flanked by a promenade that goes all the way to Marmaris The beach also caters for a wide range of water sports. The beach can be crowded in high season, but it’s easy to escape if you take one of the numerous boat trips around the bays or further afield to such to places such as Dalyan and the famous turtle beach and mud baths. You can also take a taxi boat to and seek out one of the deserted beaches around the peninsula near to the village of Turunc.

Icmelers strict noise regulations ensure that the resort goes quiet on the stroke of midnight, although the bars and restaurants remain open well into the early hours.

The canal area that runs down to the beach has a lot of atmosphere is lined with lively restaurants and craft and gift stalls.

Icmeler

Places to Eat/Drink

There are 100’s of places to eat and drink in Icmeler, with a variety of menus, varying from typical Turkish, European, Chinese, Indian and Italian (Pizza). Prices vary only a little. As a rule of thumb the nearer to the beach you go the more expensive the meal is. There are many bars if you just want a drink . Tha majority of restaurants have family entertainment with lively music and dancing until midnight. Nightclubs a few and far between and not well frequented.

Transport

Within Icmeler, everything is on the flat and within easy walking distance, we would not recommend hiring a car unless you are a very confident driver as the Turkish drivers are a little unpredictable.

If you wish to go into Marmaris you have 3 options:

1. Dolmus: Hail a Dolmus and it will only cost you a few Lira for the journey. They can get very crowded and the drivers can be a little erratic.

2. Taxi: If you want to travel in a bit more comfort use a taxi. The cost can vary from £5 to £10 be prepared to haggle and always get a price before you get into the taxi.

3. Water Taxi: Our preferred method if travel to Marmaris is the water taxi, it is very relaxed, you can get some sun and admire the view as you travel. They depart regularly from the Jetty’s located on the bay and the cost is about £7 per adult, children travel half price and often free if you are prepared to haggle.

Excursions

If you want to travel wider there are numerous excursions available:

•Turkish baths –better done early as it is known to enhance the tan

•A trip to the new Marmaris water park (opened in spring 2006) Is well worth a visit, particularly if you have children.

•The Jeep Safari is an exciting trip if you like large water guns and getting very wet, good for the older children.

•A nice trip for the adults is the weekly hydrofoil day trip to Rhodes, very nice shopping and sight seeing around Rhodes old town.

•An excellent relaxing day trip is a boat trip to Dalyan, Turtle Beach and the mud baths ( don’t expect to see any turtles though).

•For history lovers the Epheses trip may appeal but be warned it is a very long day taking 4-5 hours to reach Epheses and then you may only spend 1 -2 hours there and then a long journey back. The 2 day trip to Epheses and Pammakulle may be more leisurely but still a long way.

•Mosques: Foreign visitors should remove their shoes before entering a mosque. Try not to visit during prayer time. Women should also cover their heads and arms and not wear mini skirts or shorts.

Shopping

•General food and supplies:The Tansas supermarket is the nearest large supermarket about 10 minutes walk, you may want to grab a Taxi back if you have a lot of shopping. If you just want milk and water etc. there is a small supermarket a few hundred yards from the apartment. In Marmaris there are a number of large hypermarkets.

•Weekly Market: There is a weekly market in Icmeler on a Wednesday, this is definitely an experience. Be prepared to barter hard and you can get some wonderful bargains. There is also high quality fruit, vegetable, Turkish Delight and spices for sale. There is a similar market in Marmaris on a Friday. This is located close to the PTT post office.

•Bazaars:There is a small underground bazaar in Icmeler but the largest bazaar is located in Marmaris.

•Jewellery: You will find many jewellery shops in Icmeler and gold is particularly of excellent value.

Hairdressers and Barbers

A visit to the hairdressers is an experience for all the family. Dad can experience the luxury of a real shave, massage and all the trimmings, Mum can have her hair colour done, her nails etc for ½ the UK price, the girls can have their hair braided and the boys can get tramlines and any designs they can draw cut into there hair.

Health

The pharmacists are all really helpful and most speak good English. You can buy some prescription drugs over the counter such as antibiotics for about £4.

There is a tourist hospital in Icmeler, which has a good reputation and a larger hospital can be found in nearby Marmaris

Banks:

Numerous banks are open Mon-Fri only 8.30 -12.00 & 13.30-17.00

Cashpoints are available and will give you currency in Lira, GB Pounds or Euros.

There is also a currency exchange on the main street

"Fantastic apartment and location"

We've just come back from spending two weeks at Lal Residence, the accommodation was perfect, and the grounds were lovely. The kids loved being able to walk straight out the apartment and into the pool. There are eight apartments in total in two buildings in the grounds, this one is a ground floor apartment with the bedrooms in the basement (with windows), which means they are quieter and cooler (although it does have air-con), and being on the ground floor you can walk off the veranda straight to the pool. The apartment was in a quiet location, but literally just a few minutes walk to the town, and not much more to reach the beach. It is very easy to get to Mamaris - just hop onto the Dolmus (local bus), when you get to Marmaris you soon realise how much nicer Icmeler is, it's a lot quieter, although still has plenty of action down where the main restaurants/bars are. There's only three things I would add to the apartments, a large sun canopy over one corner of the pool, the girls would have loved a slide into the pool and wi-fi would be useful, although the local restaurants have free wi-fi, but not in range for my tablet. Overall we had a very nice two weeks, and would certainly go back.
