Oludeniz ('dead sea' in Turkish) but the steep mountain road and drop down to the beautiful lagoon still make it a major watering hole for young and old alike.  During the summer this spot can become crowded, and is a popular anchorage for yachts. It is one of the premier beach spots in Turkey and the world-classHillside Club is located here.

This lagoon offers Turkey’s most beautiful beach (and busiest), encircled by high pine-clad mountains which
plunge straight down into the turquoise sea. Though the lagoon is now designated a conservation area, there
are many small hotels and restaurants down on the beach itself. The bulk of the accommodation, however, is 4km (2.5 miles) inland in busy resorts like Side.

Icmeler - one of the best Resorts of Turkey

Icmeler - The Best Place To Enjoy Turkey

Turkey is one of the best holiday destinations in the world. It is also the best place to have a budget holiday.

Icmeler, a beach town located at a distance of less than a ten minutes ride by bus from Marmaris in the south western part of the country is the best resort town in Turkey. I had a great experience at this place. The best things of Icmeler apart from the beautiful sandy beaches are the accommodation and food.

 The road to Icmeler is not very straight. This may reflect the time for you to reach to the resort. Most cheap holiday companies offer coach transfer may take 2 to 3 hours to reach Icmeler. Coach may stop at other resorts and take some breaks. Be prepared and keep your bottle of water or juice for this hot journey. Private transfers could be shorter like 1 and half hour.icmeler turkey
Most of the Icmeler hotels are not old and hence, they have all the modern amenities required by Europeans tourists like me. All hotels are well equipped and have comfortable and clean rooms. Most of the Icmeler hotels include a bar, pool with seating area and restaurant. The breakfast and lunch I had was all English, but the menu includes many continental cuisines too.

All the hotels organize some great night programmes. Late evening entertainment shows by restaurants include celebrity impersonators, robot dances, belly dances and the best that I liked was the waiter’s dance, where all the waiters of the restaurant dance for the guests.

Some Icmeler hotels also have karaoke competitions and discos. The hotel I stayed in had both and I attended both of them and danced too.  

Almost all Icmeler hotels are located near the sea giving you a great view of the Mediterranean. Some hotels even have the famous Turkish baths.

My holiday in Icmeler in 2010 was very wonderful and coupled with the excellent Icmeler hotels, the town is sure to give you a great experience.

coasts, their valleys a sea of greenhouses producing, among many other things, some of the most delicious tomatoes in the world. A little way inland, valleys give way to rocky mountains clad in pine forests, their lower slopes filled with orchards that flutter with pink and white blossom in spring. Behind the mountains stretch the vast rolling grasslands of the Anatolian plateau with its fiercely hot summers and bitterly cold winters.
In the southeast, ancient Mesopotamia (the Near East), so famed for its fertility that some claim it to be the original Garden of Eden, lies between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers. The government is currently creating a vast network of dams based on the two rivers, to create hydro-electricity and irri­gate the semi-desert to the southeast - great for Turkey, not so good for the desert countries to the south, for whom the rivers are, quite literally, a lifeline, or for the Kurds, who claim the region as an independent state.

In the border territories of the far east, the mountains again soar skywards, culminating in the massive bulk of Mount Ararat, Turkey’s highest peak at 5,137m (16,853ft). This, according to legend, is the last resting place of Noah’s Ark. Beyond this region lie the steppes of Central Asia, from where wave after wave of invaders have arrived to shape Turkey’s people and culture.
