Marmaris is a town in Turkey, along the Mediterranean coast in the province of Muğla. Marmaris region belongs to the ancient city of Caria (3400 BC) and every place has the remnants of the ancient cities.
The Pupa Yacht Marina is located 4 miles away from the busy city of Marmaris in a beautiful corner of the bay. The small park next to the hotel and its natural beach with crystal clear sea waters meet with green pine woods with the fragrance of liquidambar trees, the entire environment tempting to take a walk or a swim on the spot. The restaurant / bar in the garden offers a large selection of traditional Turkish meals as well as fresh fish and meat dishes, sometimes prepared on the garden barbecue.

Most tourists enjoy visiting markets in both Marmaris (Armutalan) and Içmeler. The markets sell most of the same things the local shops stock but one can haggle a bit more. The market in the Armutalan area of Marmaris is on a Thursday and the Içmeler market is every Wednesday.
Marmaris is famous for its fantastic nightlife. For pre partying drinks many small bars along the beachfront offer the perfect place to watch the warm sun set. There are a selection of good clubs along the beachfront which play a variety of music and cater to different tastes.

Located in the old town this street has over 100 bars and clubs ranging from rock bars to Club arena, a huge outdoor nightclub with foam parties. All are open to at least 4 am.
