Surrounded by gorgeous hills of pine, olives and cypress trees, Icmeler is quieter than its livelier neighbour Marmaris, but still a busy and popular resort. The sweeping bay’s surrounded by cliffsides brushed with dense forests, while you’ll find pretty parasols lined up on the inviting soft sands.
There’s a typically Turkish glow to this resort. Embrace the local customs and peruse the markets, or simply sit down to tasty traditional cuisine done well. If you fancy getting your hands a bit dirtier – or rather your boots – then hike up into the mountains and stare out at staggering views.
