Toros Mountains: The mountains form a dramatic backdrop along much of the coast, often dropping steeply into the sea, but in some places rivers have washed down enough sediment over the ages to form beaches.

Tombs in Fethiye: Close to Fethiye the Tomb of Amyntas, which probably dates from the fourth century B.C. is one the most remarkable sites on the Turquoise Coast.

Blue Voyage Cruises: Marmaris is one of the most attractive maritime park lands - ideal for water sports and sailing. It makes an excellent starting point for the "Blue Voyage" tour of the Aegean coastline,

Oludeniz Lagoon: It is a sheltered lagoon of great beauty, almost totally cut off from the sea, at the northern end of a long cove. Stretching from the Oludeniz lagoon to the southern end of the cove is a long, sandy beach.

White Water Rafting: Enjoy the adrenalin rush of white water rafting and combine it with the experience of camping in the wilderness on the banks of the Dalaman River.

Sailing: The Gulf of Gocek and its friendly marina is one of the Mediterranean's best sailing spots. Some of the wonderful sea journeys, which have become the most popular activity in the region, take place in the beautiful coves of Marmaris.

Paragliding: Hisaronu, at the outskirts of the Mount Babadag-Oludeniz, is regarded worldwide for paragliding.

Atlantis Marmaris Waterpark: The biggest waterpark in Marmaris offers a full-day of fun for the entire family.
