Marmaris is centrally located on the Turkish Riviera and attracts many Europeans with its well-developed beach and resort industry plus its beautiful mountains perfect for outdoor adventures. There are a few historic attractions in and near Marmaris, beginning with the castle, which now serves as a museum. The most famous historic sites in the area are the Lycian Tombs cut into rock cliffs along the Dalyan River and the Persian-Greek-Roman ruins at Kaunos. However, the main appeal of Marmaris is the protected bay, sandy shores, and water activities available there. Marmaris is internationally known for its clubs. Many guests will want to take the "Blue Cruise," a local boat tour that provides views of the Marmaris Bay and the Datca Peninsula. Diving, snorkeling, fishing and other water sports are widely available as well. The resorts around nearby Icmeler are more tony. Cleopatra (Sedir) Island is named for the legendary trysts between Cleopatra and Marc Antony which may have occurred on the island. The sand is very famous for its golden color, rare in the Mediterranean.
