Ferries to and from Marmaris

Marmaris has a history dating back to 3000 B.C. The Ionians were the first to settle here captured by its beauty and the versatile position of Marmaris port to carry on trade. It was named as Physcos by the Ionians which was later invaded by Alexander the Great in 4th century B.C.
Later in 1552, the Ottoman Emperor, Kanuni Süleyman captured the city and changed the name to "Marmaris".
Marmaris has transformed tremendously from once being a small Turkish fishing town to a popular tourist destination thanks to its natural harbours with calm, crystal clear waters facilitating the development of splendid yachting and diving resorts and the picturesque coastline with rugged mountains and pine trees.
The area around the harbour offers a taste of character of the old town, overlooked by the ancient castle, which is now a museum. The Netsel marina is reached by a small footbridge, and is one of the largest and most modern in Turkey, the hangout of the jetset, who moor their luxury yachts here.
Other interesting sites to see are the biblical city of Efes and Pamukkale (a natural formation of rocks and thermal pools and considered as the 8th wonder of the world).
Marmaris has some of the most attractive beaches in the Aegean region of the East Mediterranean. Marmaris is also a shopping Mecca. The small shopping centre houses up market boutiques and intimate restaurants, however the real bargains are to be found in the bazaar area, with hundreds of small shops offering the usual Turkish wares - clothing, leather, jewellery and handcrafts.
Lined with palms, the seafront promenade has a typical Mediterranean feel and is a great place for an evening meal or leisurely stroll. Shops, bars and restaurants line the streets, each offering something more attractive than the last.
Marmaris Ferry Port is located on the Mediterranean coast in the south west of Turkey. Marmaris Ferry port is naturally protected by the Yildiz Adasi peninsula. This has led to the development of two major and many other small marinas. Ferries from the port of Marmaris go to the Greek Island of Rhodes and can be booked safely and securely online with AFerry.

Port officer in Marmaris tried to lie for my client, what ferry company bankruptcy and demanded to pay for service again full price, not only port taxes.

20 Aug 2011Ferry Trip
Overall it was a good experience. Lots of people in line for check in but went relatively quickly. It was a hot and sunny day and sat outside for the crossing. As a result unable to comment on interior and services. More outside seating would be a good idea and I suggest people check in early to get an outside seat if desired as they filled up quickly.
