Pine-forested mountains, sweeping bays of golden sand and blue waters…Icmeler sounds like a summertime paradise doesn’t it? The palm trees that run alongside the beach perfectly complement the laid back atmosphere and the old town adds a touch of local culture to an otherwise modern and purpose-built resort. Couples and families alike will be well looked after food-wise with restaurants serving both local and worldwide cuisine.
Splash around in the crystal clear waters of Icmeler, a place that is popular with beach bums and sun worshippers because of its three Blue Flag beaches. The sand and shingle parts of Icmeler’s coast are surrounded by waters which are great for swimmers, and for those that want to try diving there is a PADI diving school nearby. Alternatively, just chill out, relax and soak up the warm Turkish sun.
Things to Do
Hop on a catamaran for the day and set sail to the Greek island of Rhodes or go down the coast and take in the sights of nearby Marmaris. For a lively day on the water, rent out a pedalo or jet-ski and get that adrenalin going! If you want to relax though, take the 15 minute walk into the Old Town or end the day by watching the sun set over the island of Keci Adasi.
Food and Drink
One of the main places to grab breakfast, lunch or dinner is on the promenade which runs behind the beach. Traditional and local cuisine is something that restaurants in Icmeler are proud of so you’ll find lots of fresh seafood and roasted vegetables with homemade bread and pastries. If you fancy a drink one evening, visit Marmaris for a lively night out where the bars are open until the early morning.
