Seashore strung with spectacular beaches, contemporary resorts and ancient remains side by side, the Dalaman area really has amazing for everyone. This trendy district with its inner town centre is a hive of activity day and night, plus there’s a peppering of wonderful historical sites to explore.
The Dalaman region sits in a crescent-shaped scoop of Turkey’s south-west coast. Thanks to its bright blue waters and heart-eyes-emoji-worthy beaches, it’s identified as the Turquoise Coast. Icmeler and Sarigerme put their sand-smothered swathes in the spotlight. The beach at Icmeler’s a sweep of golden sand, kitted out for watersports and sunbathing alike.
When it comes to pace, you can keep your holiday diverse in the Dalaman region. Marmaris has two major beaches in its bank. By day, they’re flooring of sunbather-friendly sand backed by snack spots and restaurants. By night, the bars pick up, and partygoers make their way to the main strip, where doors tend to stay open ‘til sunrise. But come nightfall, around fifteen-minute taxi ride will get you to its neon neighbour, Hisaronu, with its party-‘til-dawn main street.
